"The Thing" really found its audience in the video market. By the time it was released, the audience was able to appreciate what was being done. The rest is history. But ask a studio to take a chance on a new story... hell no.
Absolutely right ! I remember watching "The Thing" in an EMPTY cinema back in '82 , which added to the impact it had on me !
P.s, unless I'm mistaken , a remake of "Clash of the Titans" IS on the cards .
