We've got a batch of super detailed photos from the prequel to John Carpenter's The Thing (also titled The Thing). So take a look at what the beast looked like right after it emerged from the ice block. Could this be the original version of The Thing? Or is it just another poor mutated beast (hence the UFO crash we saw many years earlier, in the 1982 movie?) Your guess is as good as ours.

The Thing (prequel) will be in theaters on October 14th.
