THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD (usa 1951) dir: Christian Nyby

It's half past three in the morning on these shores and I've just finished watching the original movie adaptation of "Who Goes There?" entitled THE THING FROM ANOTHER WORLD (1951). And I liked it quite a bit! You'd probably be hard pressed to find anybody who thinks it's better than Carpenter's remake, THE THING, but I thought it was pretty good, not cheesy at all and no wooden acting or bad effects (and I'm not the only one, check out Michael Weldon's review from the original Psychotronic Video book!). And I do like snapper cases (in contradiction to everyone else).
