X was the real YIt turns out that the thing was the real Murder on the Orient Express.

Forget everything I said about The Thing from Another World.

There is only so much room for adaptations of "Who Goes There?", and this one is so much better. This movie actually has the body-shifting mechanic that I've just assumed is in the novella. This is a primo horror story concept and the movie handles it well (the effects are a little goofy, but acceptably so). This version takes place on a train and trains are fantastic. This version has a great cast including Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, and Telly Savalas.

[SPOILER-y] The movie also has a bit of a Dracula feel including a Renfield and some brainwashed hordes.

This movie was fun and good and you should watch it.
