    Answer: Nothing. There is no point whatsoever to this, just as there was no point whatsoever to the piss-poor remake of The Fog.

    I am actually very interested in this. Refuse to watch cam footage of the trailer though. I've been following this extremely closely since it was announced some 3 years ago. The fact that they have hired people who actually speak Norwegian, are tying it directly to Carpenter's film and are using mostly practical effects has my interest piqued. Also, the fact that they are using Carpenter's film as the template for this, recreating imagery directly from it and having the end of this lead directly into the 1982 film is at least promising.

    It's not a remake though.

    I'm interested in this as well now. Joe just sold me on it.

    I'm in the same boat as Joe.

    Although we know how it ends, it'll be interesting to see how it gets there.

    I'm cautiously optimistic.

    Wish they gave the title some sort of identifying mark to differentiate it from the original though, or to at least imply its a prequel, hate to see people assume this is the first or whatever (ala say...people that think GTA 3 was the first GTA game).

    So this film is basically what leads up to the original film's opening with the dog? If so, then I'm up for seeing it! Just as long as they stick with old school special effects and stay as far away from CGI as possible.

    If I remember correctly, there's also a comic book that continues off where the 80's film ended. And then there's that video game too.

    Dude, that video game was AWESOME. I regret ever trading it in, but then again I did trade my PS2 in at the same time so... but still.

    Irony that the Thing is a remake in the first place and the first few comment is an eyeroll at yet another remake :lol

    Barely a remake. The Carpenter film follows the original novella "Who Goes There?" far more closely than the 1951 film. Indeed, the '51 film differs from the novella in almost all details. Heck, the Carpenter film actually uses the character names from the story, the original film doesn't.

    Oh. and practical effects, gore, and everyone dies, or GTFO.
