FleshEatingZipper says: "If you were in any way, shape, or form anticipating this film, then the only optimistic thing you’re going to get out of this review is the gorgeous picture above of the dazzling Mary Elizabeth Winstead with a flamethrower. In anticipation of seeing this Thing, I went on Netflix last night and saw Jack Carpenter’s 1982 Thing and left it with the knowledge that I had seen a great horror film. Twenty minutes into this prequel, I began to hate it immensely. Why? Because despite claims otherwise, this film is an almost note-for-note remake of that better film; a suspense-free, overproduced imitation."
