  1. From what I've heard, people didn't like it because it was a remake of The Thing From Another World from 1951. I'm a big fan of Howard Hawks, who produced and definitely had some directorial influence on it, and it has some some nice overlapping dialogue and use of shadows to hide the alien, but the remake is superior in every way. 

    I love Carpenter, but if I had to pick one of his movies that was overrated, it would be Big Trouble. It's not bad, but I just don't see it on the level of his best works.
