The Thing is a great example of him making a film thats weird but not self consciously weird, it just comes out of the story. I think he might be the greatest horror/sci-fi director of all time.
This remake looks completely uninteresting to me.
He was always my favorite horror director as well
The Thing, The Fog, Halloween, Esacape from New York(not horror but still), etc etc etc
Last good movie he made was "In The Mouth of Madness" tho, his newer movies suck
ghosts of Mars = one of the worst movies I've ever seen, shits up there with Attack of the Killer Tomatos
