The Thing (2011) Red Band Trailer. Blood, mutilation and monsters...Oh My...

It has a nonsensical title, it has fans of both Carpenter’s 1982 film (To which this is a prequel, even though it is also called the thing) AND fans of the first adaptation ‘The Thing From Another World’ very, very sceptical about it’s ability to lick the boots of either film. There’s a serious over abundance of non-Norwegian types and at least one daft “Boo...ha-ha-, it’s just a dude, oh crap, now it’s the real monster” moment. But The Thing is almost here and here’s a creature filled, R rated glimpse at what is heading our way on the 14th of October.

The Thing; A clip for the, confusingly titled, Prequel to John Carpenter’s classic ‘The Thing’ (updated with HD clip).

“Antarctica: an extraordinary continent of awesome beauty. It is also home to an isolated outpost where a discovery full of scientific possibility becomes a mission of survival when an alien is unearthed by a crew of international scientists. The shape-shifting creature, accidentally unleashed at this marooned colony, has the ability to turn itself into a perfect replica of any living being. It can look just like you or me, but inside, it remains inhuman. In the thriller The Thing, paranoia spreads like an epidemic among a group of researchers as they're infected, one by one, by a mystery from another planet. Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about to wake up. When a simple experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison, Kate must join the crew's pilot, Carter (Joel Edgerton), to keep it from killing them off one at a time. And in this vast, intense land, a parasite that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish. The Thing serves as a prelude to John Carpenter's classic 1982 film of the same name.”
