If a movie is remade, sometimes I acquire the original along with the remake and watch them both back-to-back. Just recently, I (re)watched the 1982 cult classic, "The Thing" and followed it up with the 2011 not cult classic, "The Thing" prequel. But what some people don't realize is that the 1982 film was actually a remake of "The Thing From Another World", which the prequel often paid tribute too. As a lover of the 1982 version (indifferent to the prequel), I decided to check this one out and is it good? Sure, but it's only vaguely a horror film.
