WORST: 'The Thing'
While not technically a remake, this prequel had the same title and same plot as John Carpenter's 1982 film, which involved a group of scientists who discovered a man-eating alien in Antarctica. What may have been a fresh concept 20 years ago felt tired in the now-over-saturated genre. In this case, being too faithful to the original was this beast's downfall. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Universal)
