Rating: 3.5/4 -- It features crackling dialogue, deliciously subversive humor, confident and competent heroes, and a healthy air of sexual playfulness between its romantic leads. Full Review

Rating: 8/10 -- Even though the thing doesn't begin to make its presence felt till near the halfway point... the simple act of watching men discuss strategy ends up being terrifically absorbing. Full Review

The overall message of The Thing emerges as distinctly hawkish. Reactionary or not, though, it's still a masterpiece. Full Review

The film has more frissons than most of today's mega-budget productions, simply because it has the grace to construct a meaningful situation and coherent characters. Full Review

Rating: A+ -- The Thing (From Another World) (1951) is an influential and taut horror and science-fiction B-film hybrid, loosely based (by screenwriter Charles Lederer) on the short story Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell, Jr. Full Review
