It's been awhile since i last watched this classic... Trust no one, even the ones that are close to you.. It reminds me of reality ha I love this film, great horror from john carpenter... some good cast specially Kurt russell... the ended as always makes you think... mystery... but i did read something up not long back that you can tell... eyes.... but i won't say anymore... i thought the prequel was okay.. but glad it wasn't a remake because the film didn't need one.. not many good horrors out there, but this one should be on your list to watch.. worth it ;)

Great movie, a classic of horror, anxiety, distrust, being isolated in a remote location

Great movie, it is definitely a classic, it really defines the 80s genre of horror. If you really want to know who the thing is well, it's child. In the last scene of the movie when Childs and Macready are talking to each other one is breathing and the other is not.
