What an incredible movie.

Graphic perfection.

Camera work exceptional.

As an audio engineer, I appreciate all the intense tactical work. To compile and entire audio/visual masterpiece is nothing short of genius.

This freak show is awesome to behold.

The Thing is another one of my cherished horror movies that aged very well. Both it and Jaws terrified me as a kid. The lifeless eyes on that shark.... Shudder.

The drinking scene in the boat, where Cllint recounts the story of The Indianapolis - one of the best scenes in film history, period.

Spielberg peaked with Jaws, it’s been downhill ever since.

Also contains one of the best few minutes of acting ever committed to cellulose. Everyone who’s seen it knows what I’m talking about.

So did Dreyfuss.

I’m not exactly sure what scene, but I will say, Robert Shaw was a heck of an actor, and he left us way too soon.

Funny thing is that the mechanical shark ALWAYS broke down every day, which added to the cost of the production.

You have to be talking about the opening scene. The scariest of the whole movie.

Duel was great, too. But I would still put Jaws above it, solely because it was on the big screen.

Nowadays, the shark would have been CGI.

Chrissy gets paraded in the sharks mouth before clining to bouy then cries “somebody help me!” before going under.
