We wouldn't have much of the great horror of the modern era without such boundary pushing science fiction horror as [The Thing From] Another World Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- It's still a very harrowing and action packed horror film... Full Review
Cinema Crazed

The film has more frissons than most of today's mega-budget productions, simply because it has the grace to construct a meaningful situation and coherent characters. Full Review
