What was the movie about?
The movie is about a captain who discovers an alien frozen in ice. It escapes the ice and the people with the captain try to fight it. The people try to talk to the alien but nothing can stop the thing from another world.
What I thought about the movie.
I think the movie was good. I was surprised when I saw the Thing the first time.
What I learned about making films.
I learned that not showing the monster until the end of the movie helps. It adds a lot of suspense.
Why I think other kids should see this film.
I think other kids should see this movie because it will surprise them; like when they burn the Thing. Also when the doctor almost gets killed, it is very suspenseful.
