    Brehs, this opening sequence and Ennio Morricone score has me mesmerized :wow:

    Might be the GOAT mysterious opening to a film ever, truly bizarre



    Watching the 2011 prequel gave this scene so much gravitas :wow:

    Everyone knows how much I love this original. The music, the practical effects, the isolation everything was just perfect about this movie. If I'm not mistaken the 2011 version was the prequel to the original and dealt with the Norwegian team found in the beginning of the 82 version. The CGI was so over the top in the 2011 version it just felt dumb.

    GOAT Horror movie. Body Horror, suspense, paranoia. Tfw they knew they couldn't let it get to the mainland and that they weren't going to make it home:sadcam:

    Was the Doc in control as the Thing took over, feeling his body lose the battle? Did he destroy the radios knowing he was turning with each passing second, or was that the Thing fukking with his mind?

    So many theories :wow:
