    So what happened to the woman then from this prequel? I don't remember her being mentioned in the 1982 Thing movie.

    This felt more like an inferior remake than a prequel.

    They did leave the ending a bit ambiguous!

    Kate: Either froze to death in the snow cat or made it to the Russian research base that was mentioned earlier in the prequel. A fringe possibly is that she had become infected on the alien ship and is in the process of being assimilated and opted to simply sit there and wait it out. In their DVD commentary the writers/directors/producers put forward the theory that she returned to the camp, discovered that Lars had taken off in pursuit of the dog and followed him to the American camp in the snowcat, arriving in time to rescue MacCready and Childs at the end of John Carpenter's film.

    interesting^ But the way the John Carpenter ended the movie its seemed like they were both going to be infected by sharing the liquor bottle

    I thought that ending was left open to interpretation as well, I assumed one of them (probably Childs) was infected but it was kind of left open to the viewer to decide. The element of mistrust and being unsure was what made the film though
