The Thing (2011) (REVIEW)

Mary Elizabeth Winstead in "The Thing"

When the trailer first dropped for "The Thing" remake -- ahem, prequel -- the standard remake reaction of, "My God!" instead was replaced with something more like a "Hmmmm..." Though it was clear that director Matthijs van Heijningen relied heavily on Carpenter's film, itself a remake, for inspiration, there appeared to be enough juice left in this concept to support a full fledged predecessor to the 1982 classic. Now, with Heijningen's film opened, it's safe to say that those with initial hesitations should feel at least partially justified.
