BEST: The Thing (1982)
Original: The Thing From Another World (1951)
Your rank: #4 (6.13% of vote)
We say: John Carpenter’s cult classic closely resembled Howard Hawks’ Cold War-era masterpiece, but gruesome special effects helped add a welcome dose of horror to the original’s eerie paranoia. I love to imagine the terrified moviegoer who errantly wandered into The Thing instead of E.T., which ironically opened to wider acclaim two weeks earlier.
