The Thing (2011)

At an Antarctica research site, the discovery of an alien craft leads to a confrontation between a graduate student and a scientist.

OK prequel to John Carpenter's The Thing (which was in itself a remake) that tries to surpass it's counterpart with gory special effects: the result making it appear superfluous.

Maltin**: "Conceived as a prequel to the 1982 version, this isn't completely unsuccessful, but the plentiful CGI visual effects can't compare to the grahic horrors of the '82 movie."
