The first full-length trailer for the Thing prequel is here, and it serves up a huge dose of claustrophobia and paranoia, laced with awesome bloody violence. If you've been skeptical about a prequel to John Carpenter's film, check this out.

This trailer might just win you over to the Thing thang. In particular, it's looking as though Mary Elizabeth Winstead's performance might just carry this film. Fingers crossed!

The Thing comes out in October.
