Carpenter — the name of a famous. So people not him need to learn how to remove terrors and nightmares, because it is able to do. A remake generally do not is: well filmed 30 years later, horror films and there is no sense. We must learn to the original.

I think not necessary to repeat that in the Arctic ice is hiding something, who wanted to colonize the planet Earth. Here can the analogy of  the"other" to hold", but if the second has a mind, then we see the terrible mutant, which copies DNA media creates a copy of its kind in the same form. But stand in the way of courageous scientists.

Among them are few will recognize a bearded Kurt Russell, who is well known by the movie "Elvis". However, he we were clisock silent. In General, the dialogues in the film unconvincing. And is as the point, what can we blame the writers, they not a silent movie filmed.

Special effects here complete and is with that it was not computer graphics. To create this manually — masterpiece. Was not just terrible, but and visionary movie about that we can do obsessed. A kind of metaphor for drug addiction, alcoholism and narcissism. One can become so, if you want to make yourself like it. The only chance to stop — to destroy. To unfortunately, you will have to pay dearly.

"Something" — not only good remake of a famous science fiction film of 1951, but and kind of response to carpenter Steven Spielberg with his "E. T.". In the end, the master was able to take high-quality horror film, not have large counterparts.

Accidentally stumbled on the Norwegian scientists and shelters a dog, the American team of researchers doomed to a nightmare. Rescued dog in flash becomes a horrible creature that absorbs all who will get to it on the way. Cut off from around the world don't trust each other, scientists are forced to face with an alien organism that has the ability to turn into anyone, having absorbed its DNA.

The film combines two genre — fantastic quality horror. The resulting on-screen image of a monstrous alien even in the present time, is able to catch up with fear. And wasn't in monstrous forms in which the creature occasionally manifests itself, and case in that he may be one of anywhere. Scientists, realizing with whom you are dealing, you start to suffer from paranoia, because to believe is nobody not, you any time can become a victim of monstrous creatures.

Gloomy atmosphere of hopelessness and nightmare here on high level. Just imagine: you was on the polar stations, without any chance to leave the base or contact outside world, among you "walks" is an alien organism taking any available form. Now you speak with his colleague, and after a minute, he slowly transformed and trying to tear your head off. This tension, fear not leaves the whole movie.

For appearance monsters — a special thank you. Something of a transformation, appearance monsters are really impressive, and all looks very realistic and scary, and unwittingly throws in a shiver. The film is long, but the fear remains. Particularly impressed by the transformation of the scientist Norris and walking severed head. Bravo. The tension and suspense in height.

The music adds to the gloom in the overall mood of the film, and acting here on high level.

"Something" — the perfect blend of intense Thriller and skilled quality fiction. For a magnificent psychological atmosphere, scary monsters for paranoid of what is happening, this movie deserves a special place in the Speke of the most frightening movies in history of cinema.

Bravo, John Carpenter!

"Something" is a fantastic horror movie Director John Carpentras. The tape is based on the book "Who's there?" the writer John W. Campbell, and tells the story of the American polar groups facing an alien creature that absorbs its victims on a molecular level, completely copy them appearance and habits. And here you already do not know where your friend, where terrible and dangerous enemy.

The atmosphere of the film is made on the best! Snowfield, freezing cold, alienation from the civilized world... and the music of the incomparable Ennio Morricone. Easy on the ear electronic compositions create tension in the duration of the viewing.

The special effects (created by a young master of the grim Rob Bottino) above all praise, made without the slightest hint of computer technology, they are so reliably convey all the nuances of the reincarnation of an alien monster that just no words, some emotions (horror and disgust). What to say?! If the film has nearly 30 years and he still worthy of looking at screen.

Young Kurt Russell is great in the role of the polar Explorer, which is up to the very end fighting for your life and the life of the whole planet (after all, finding the path to civilization, something that infects all living things on earth). The other actors also coped well with their work are not highlighted on generally, but not look back.

This film is a great representative of the 80s! Such work has created the backbone of the entire genre and it's worth watching all those who do not the polluted brains of the current computer effects and blockbusters on day. Yeah and all the lovers of great and good horrible kinofantastiki strongly recommended to view (although certainly they so know this "Something").
