Inspired by the PRE-QUEL to John Carpenter’s the Thing, the NEW 2011, the Thing, that’s RIGHT, PRE-QUEL, for some reason, everyone I talk to assumes this is a re-make, it’s NOT! If you are a fan of Carpenter’s 1980 movie w/ Kurt Russell, GO SEE THIS!! It tells the story of what happened in the Norwegian camp and ends right where John Carpenter’s starts! One word…BRUTAL!! This is the emblem on the side of the snowcats in the Norwegian camp.
