Re: THE THING (2011): Discussion, Spoilers, Reviews

I don't know why, but for some reason I've always seen Carpenter's movie as being a sort of vague sequel to the 1950s movie, with the Norwegian camp standing in for the camp of the original movie.

Especially when we see that video footage of them standing around the spaceship like that.

Not sure if that was Carpenter's intention, but it certainly feels that way to me.
