When you think of yourself as a hero in some fantasy, what does it involve? Do you save a lot of people? Do you get the girl or the guy? When you are playing out these scenarios, do you ever sacrifice yourself? This a question that The Thing asks fantastically. This is one of my favorite movies because it handles a horror movie in such an awesome way. The monster is almost an afterthought. The real suspense is do you attempt to save yourself or not? If to save humanity you had to sacrifice yourself, could you do it? Would you?
