Love it! <XD Hands down, I think it's the best horror movie out there, certainly is my #1 horror film, just can't watch it anymore....only movie that gives me horrible nightmares o____o;;; The concept of it is to blame for that, truly scares me to death more then any other horror movie had ever done. >>;
A guy I knew who as retired military was stationed in Alaska once upon a time, and they'd send movies up to them to watch every now and then. And when it came out, they sent "THE THING." Apparently, the base in the movie? Dead ringer for the base they lived in. Scared the crap out of them. One guy locked himself in the galley for a couple of days.
