I'm starting to think the 80s version was one of the greatest sci fi horror movies of all time.

I really love the design. It captures a horrifying alien in all its glory. And having this chase you through an Antarctic base, can cause serious psychological harm.

Here's my list of horrifying creatures: (1) the thing from john carpenter, (2) the flood from halo, (3) the parasites from dead space

And their all connect.

The Nercomorphs are based on the Thing, and John Carpenter even played the game, and  like a movie, while the guys who played Childs, Keith David, played the Arbiter.

Excellent. The design is great and the atmosphere is very creepy. The Thing(1982) is the greatest sci-fi horror movie ever made.

I wish the prequel was better, The entire first half should have been the saucer Dig. Investigating a non working dark ship while waiting for the creature to break out.....the suspense would been unbearable and awesome! Other gripes aside, this is what I wanted and somewhat expected.

I saw the 1982 version as a kid and not knowing what to expect; since the box didn't show much. I remember the Blairmonster really freaking me out. (got my money's worth that weekend!)

the thing I like about this pic (besides looking like it just jumped out of the movie in question) is that, depending on your point of view, it looks like the Thing is either just starting to mutate out of its disguise or is almost finshed imiatating its human disguise. You got that down perfectly and if it wasnt, its still a damn great picture of one of my favourite movie monsters. Great job :)
