The trailer for the upcoming prequel to The Thing is here, and it looks and feels a whole lot like The Thing itself. The helicopter shot and the dog are straight from John Carpenter, and the snowy paranoia and puddles of grossness are quintessential Thing things. Plus, Mary Elizabeth Winstead makes a compelling scientist and Kurt Russell replacement! Does face-rippling CGI ruin the intense realism that makes the 1982 Thing so effective? Well, we'll see. The Thing opens October 14.
