thaklos thaklos wrote about John Carpenter's The Thing

The real villain of this movie isn't the alien, but rather the doubt the characters have in their comrades. The camp doesn't interfere with the wonderful tension that Carpenter constructs from this mistrust. This movie manages to epitomize its genre whilst still searching for a universal truth, which is impressive and enjoyable. I also really appreciated the ambiguity of the closing scene, where Russell and David finish the film with a whisper.
