The Thing (異種2011) (release 2011-10-13) is the prequel to the The Thing (1982) (怪形). So the new Chinese title is actually a misnomer. Although this prequel is probably not as good as the original, as a slasher/monster movie, it is mostly effective, so I’d say it is marginally above average. The CGI monsters look ok but not too realistic. I read that it has excellent continuity with the 1982 version, for this I’ll have to find and watch the 1982 version again.
