The Thing minimalist poster by AshtonPerson The Thing minimalist poster by AshtonPerson
My favorite poster so far. Did one of my favorite horror movies, The Thing. Not the new prequel but the awesome 1982 remake with Kurt Russel. This poster was alittle tricky to pick a scene or something that explains the movie as a whole. So I pick my favorite scene where the blood shoots up and freaks out.

Nice work.

But NO, this movie is not a fucking remake of the 1951 movie, they have very little in common as Carpenter's film is so different than the "original" that it's a remake in name only. It's a re-adaptation of John Campbell's 1938 novella "Who Goes There" and i consider the 1951 and 1982 movies to be 2 separate adaptations of the novella, the 1951 movie was a terrible terrible adaptation that barely resembled the short story and Carpenter's film is a standalone film that stays true to the novella

This so much. The 1951 movie was simply terrible. It had absolutely nothing in common with the short story, and Carpenter's movie meanwhile is a wonderful and faithful adaption to the novella/short story. It is a shame however that Campbell's work isn't too well known, it's definitely something that should be taught in schools.
