The Thing trailer

Here’s the trailer for the prequel to the great John Carpenter movie from the 1980s. An alien saucer is found under the ice in Antarctica. The pilot is not as dead as everyone assumes. I kind of remember in the original film how they turn up at the Norwegian camp and everyone is dead, so I don’t think there’s many happy endings in this movie…

Of course, given how the first film ended, I’m surprised they didn’t got for a sequel.


I am an author of various fantasy, science fiction, crime and other genre books from Gollancz, Hachette and HarperCollins. Some day I hope to grow up and be an astronaut. Exploring Mars would be nice.
