"You gotta be f.....g kidding..."

This is without a doubt the pinnacle of Carpenter's career and one of my absolute favorite monster movies of all time. Though Bottin's effects are still some of the best practical effects ever made, what really makes this movie the classic it is, is Carpenter's perfect pacing of the growing tension and paranoia among the perfectly cast residents of the remote arctic, claustrophobic base. There really is nothing more to say about this.

Surprised that such a movie can make the IMDB Top 250

I watched this movie given that it ranks pretty solidly amidst the imdb top 250. I must admit that I am generally not a big fan of horror movies but as with all other genres, if the movie itself is good and delivers a good experience (e.g. Alien, Scream, Saw for horror, to name a few), I may like it. Entirely different is this movie. The effects are ok (probably quite good for the time), however, the story is completely relying on the shock effects derived from the way "the Thing" kills the crew. Otherwise, there is no atmosphere, no tension, NOTHING. Even despite Ennio Morricone being the composer of this movie, I am wondering if there is any scene where music is properly used or even creates tension. Overall for me quite a disappointment, I would have expected more from a movie rated that highly. An utterly awful and stupid movie, like most horror movies.
