I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel where there's an outbreak of "things" all over the globe.

The most scariest scene in the movie theater when I saw it was when Kurt Russell had them tied up on the couch and was taking bood samples with the flame thrower. Whenhe hit the alien blood sample and it jumped, the theater crowd jumped and screamed. It caught every one by suprise and there were a lot of wet pants.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkNyC6MQMj0

Watch the scene.

I loved the spider head - that was the grossest bit when I first saw it!

Quite a funny story, hope I didn't tell it already discussing Carpenter's film:

When THE THING came out, Kurt Russell appeared on a local 9am morning talk show here in LA to promote the film. Kurt's a fun guy, good sense of humor and affable to say the least. The co-hosts were having a great time... then Kurt says roll the clip -- and they show the dog-thing discovery scene in the kennel cages.

Clip ends. The co-hosts are sitting on the couch with hands over their mouths, eyes wide as saucers. Kurt is laughing with glee.

Good Morning, LA!

The first thing that came to mind upon hearing that anecdote.

I think there are a lot of possibilities with this storyline. Finding and exploring the crashed alien spacecraft, finding and digging up the alien, what the alien looked like when they found it, what happens when it thaws, etc.. I think it's a great idea.

I think they have to be very careful, because it'll be hard to avoid following the same outline as the 1982 version.

The old problem of 'how do you make it different, when you have the same basic story'

After Galactica I expect something interesting from Moore, at very least.

Mind you, they've now hired someone for a rewrite. Sorry, can't remember the name.
