The Thing (2011)

I think that this is one of the best remakes as well. Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. directed one of the most classic thrillers and respected the vision of the legendary John Carpenter. The story is just the same as in the old film and the only change is that we have a female protagonist here. Scientist Dr. Sander Halvorson. is the leader of a team that discovers an alien spaceship in Antarctica and a strange being trapped in ice. He calls for graduate student Kate Lloy, to help them with the research. The alien accidentally escapes and starts the massacre. When the team kills it, another fight starts, as they find out that its cells begin imitating the humans and the next victim can be anyone of them. Thrilling experience and great suspense, cool effects and convincing acting from the team of actors give us a good result. Sure it can't reach the highest standards of the original flick but it still is a good effort and an enjoyable film.
