Exclusive “The Thing” Clip (2011) – Spoilers

Thanks to Merrick over at Ain’t It Cool News for the heads up on this clip from MTV for the Prequel to John Carpenter’s The Thing. Remember…SPOILERS sort of lay ahead.

Hm. I would say that it’s fair to claim that this particular Thing from another world isn’t happy when it wakes up. Make sure to visit the Forums when you have the time, we’ve got a discussion going on about the Prequel, a Non-Spoiler one at that.

    Vic, I thought we were friends. How could you do this to me? You know that this is the movie that must not be spoiled. Okay, I’ll try to have willpower, I’ll try to have self-control, I’ll try not to push the play button…don’t push the play button….push the play button…

    This movie has me worried. The Thing is one of my all time favorite films, and the notion of a prequel has my spidey-sense tingling. I’m not sure how well a prequel can be done here, given that we already know what happened at the Norwegian camp, right?

    But it’s how we get there, right? Call me stupid, but I, also a huge fan of The Thing, am not worried about this. The trailer makes it look like they’ve kept the Carpenter vibe.
