You ever wonder why John Carpenter's The Thing didn't feature a pretty American college girl sent to live amongst a team of Norwegian men in the middle of nowhere? The main reason is because that sounds like pornography. The other reason is because it would be this: a trailer for The Thing prequel that appears to sacrifice most of the paranoia and disgustingly revolting creature effects for your standard "gotcha!" scares and CGI. Call me old fashioned, but a The Thing without Wilford Brimley freaking the fuck out is no The Thing for me.
They'd better just be saving the locomotive disembodied head for the full film.
