Mary Elizabeth Winstead in 'The Thing'

Let's Not Do It Again! continues at Trailers from Hell, with writer-director Jesus Trevino introducing "The Thing" -- and not the John Carpenter version.

That director Matthijs van Heijningen used John Carpenter’s 1982 remake of The Thing as the touchstone for his 2011 prequel rather than Howard Hawks’ 1951 original says as much about contemporary audiences as his own artistic bent; Carpenter’s garishly gonzo version is far more in keeping with current audience expectations than Hawks’ intensely suspenseful but comparatively discreet monster movie. Ironically, van Heijningen’s film disappointed at the box office because its approach was deemed too slavish to Carpenter’s version.
