UPDATE: [OMFG] See Creature FX Work for ‘The Thing’!

Update: Universal called and let us know that these do NOT have anything to do with the NEW movie.

We stumbled onto an unofficial Facebook page for Universal Pictures’ forthcoming The Thing, the Matthijs van Heijningen Jr.-directed prequel to John Carpenter’s ’80s remake that arrives in theaters October 14.

While a few official images have been released, this fanpage has been scouring the Web for behind-the-scenes pics, stumbling across the very first monster shots, along with pictures of some of the maquettes used in the movie. One can only assume we’re going to see A LOT of practical effects work!

Dig on some of the best of the best inside.
