I was thinking about the decade that I was born in the 80s to young to remember , I was a baby in those days. What I do remember is that their were a lot of horror / scifi movies during that time that come out. Recently The Thing was released in the theatres again, I am not sure if it's a remake or prequel.
I saw the movie , I thought it was great movie it was different then what I was imaging when this movie come to mind. It is definitely a must see if you are the type of person that likes horror movies. Afterwards in the evening I looked up on netflix the original version and add it to the quene , I haven't watched it yet.
