This movie is a modern remake of The Thing with a high school twist. In a similar fashion, the aliens can mimic the characters so that you get lost in who is what. I confess that the movie successfully surprised me a few times. Of course, the movie is not as good as The Thing itself, but still I was very happily surprised. The story is good, with lots of interesting ideas and innovative scenes in it. It is well-cadenced with some good action scenes and convincing special effects. Overall a very convincing experience!
