For those of you who enjoyed the John Carpenter version of the classic Sci-Fi horror The Thing, have a look at this:- http://clarkesworldmagazine.com/watts_01_10/ It also looks like the prequel is finally a go, cameras are scheduled to roll around March. Rumors have it set in the Norwegian camp that the creature escapes from at the start of the film. My heart sinks at this because I think the story will be diminished by this attempt to expand the backstory, I dread that it will turn into a CGI fest that simply will not have the same impact. I want to like it, I want it to be good - I'd even settle for okay... The 1951 version was also pretty good, despite wandering away quite considerably from the original short story from 1938.
