The official Facebook page for Universal's new prequel to the classic John Carpenter horror 'The Thing', ridiculously also called 'The Thing', has revealed the first behind the scenes effects shots of the unnamed creature. It's nice to see some real practical effects in use here which is what the original 1982 movie is most fondly remembered for. Let's hope that a lot of it features in the final cut. Mary Elizabeth Winstead ('Scott Pilgrim vs The World'), Joel Edgerton, Jonathan Walker ('Land of the Dead'), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ('Lost'), Eric Christian Olsen ('Dumb and Dumberer') and Ulrich Thomsen ('Season of the Witch') all star in the Matthijs van Heijningen Jr helmed prequelisation. Check out the shots below and make sure you head on over to the official Facebook page (linked below) for even more!

"Antarctica: an extraordinary continent of awesome beauty. It is also home to an isolated outpost where a discovery full of scientific possibility becomes a mission of survival when an alien is unearthed by a crew of international scientists. The shape-shifting creature, accidentally unleashed at this marooned colony, has the ability to turn itself into a perfect replica of any living being. It can look just like you or me, but inside, it remains inhuman. In the thriller THE THING, paranoia spreads like an epidemic among a group of researchers as they’re infected, one by one, by a mystery from another planet. Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about to wake up. When a simple experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison, Kate must join the crew’s pilot, Carter (Joel Edgerton), to keep it from killing them off one at a time. And in this vast, intense land, a parasite that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish."

'The Thing' opens in theatres from 14 October.
