Ambiance
This is a remake of the movie The Thing from Another World, a 1951 John W. Campbell story adaptation. The actors are all male and all geared up to face the worst conditions; more specifically, here, an upcoming battle against a powerful being that wraps itself in mystery. The “Thing” can hardly be summarized with words and doesn't communicate the way we do.
The Thing establishes suspense like few horror films do; by laying down the facts, raising questions that may never find answers, then offering you so much more than the many outcomes you could possibly imagine. It uses perfectly paced sequences leading to unexpected jump scares. The animatronics are one of the kind and among the best and scariest ever seen in the genre.
The lighting is always just right; not revealing too much or too little. The thick ambiance is reinforced by an ongoing storm that implicitly restricts and locks the protagonists in; therefore accommodating the creature and forcing the victims to find creative ways to survive. Fortunately, they have big muscles, free access to a large arsenal and aren't the scared type...

The following recommendation lists are based on 2000 horror movie reviews. They were extracted from a database and formatted for this book. Tales of Terror (www.terror.ca) is an online “gamified” tool designed for horror fans, students, authors and filmmakers. “Gamification” is the adaptation and transformation of tangible concepts into empirical games. Not unlike sport publications, fantasy leagues and role-playing games, the Almanac of Terror mixes and aggregates different statistics, facts, ratings and opinions. Most of the lists included in this book are sorted from best to worst according to their overall score. Some lists are sorted by pertinence. Our classification method uses genres, subgenres, ambiances and antagonists. Our different ratings are as follows: stars, story, creativity, action, quality, gimmick, and rewatchability. We sometimes use the “creepiness” factor when populating certain lists.
