When I first heard a prequel of John Carpenter's The Thing was to made, I wondered why the fuck anyone would mess with such a great movie. Secondly, why make it at all when we know how it will end up because it's the beginning of the 1982 movie. It'd be like someone making movies to tell us that Anakin Skywalker is Darth Vader. Oh, hang on! MUST NOT MENTION THOSE DAMN PREQUELS!!!!
Anyway, Ain't It Cool News has a cool article about this movie that may appease me until I see if they fuck it up or not.
