As a fan of Carpenter's 1982 movie, I can honestly say that this soundtrack is nothing short of awesome! Beltrami has finally outdone himself.

Good…With a little bit of bad.

As a huge fan of Carpenter`s film and Morricone`s soundtrack, I can say I enjoyed this soundtrack.
The beginning sounds more like James Horner`s Aliens soundtrack rather than The Thing, but eventually it smooths itself out and sounds more like Morricone`s music.


No pun intended, this score is the sign of a composer that understands how to pay homage without redundant imitation. And, in fact, much of the quieter tracks simply mirrors the intention of the original Morricone score: to capture the weather of the desolate forever-winter. There's even a touch of James Newton Howard here, I believe. But there's a pleasant blend of contemporary and classic horror.
