John Carpenter's The Thing is usually held up as a successful, superior remake and I agree.
It was more of a remix than a remake. Although I would say it felt a little more intune with the book "Who Goes There" than The Thing From Another Planet. But yes, JCs version is the best by far and I consider it perhaps one of the greatest films of all time.

I also love how it has no CGI in it whatsoever. I think it was the last major film to claim such a thing.

The recent version of "The Thing" was beyond crap though.
