It's very difficult to successfully make a film based off a classic movie, but we have to tip our hat to the people behind this year's 'The Thing.' The teaser trailer was released earlier today, and it looks like viewers will be in for quite a ride.

This 'Thing' is a prequel to John Carpenter's 1982 film of the same name. Taking place three days before the '82 events, Dutch filmmaker Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. will follow the Norwegian crew that we see (what's left of them, anyway) at the beginning of Carpenter's flick.

While this movie does claim to be a prequel, we can't help but point out the similarities: the dog barking wildly; the crew drinking and hanging out, having no idea something very bad is about to go down; the monster taking the place of human beings. But don't let that dissuade you from at least watching the trailer, which is below.
