Synopsis

Look closely at your neighbour... Trust no-one... They might be the Thing. Man is the warmest place to hide
John Carpenter, director of Halloween, The Fog and Escape From New York, continues his phenomenal string of hits with The Thing, a new version of the classic horror thriller starring Kurt Russell. It's set in the winter of 1982 at a research station in Antarctica where a twelve man research team finds an alien being that has fallen from the sky and has remained buried in the snow for over 100,000 years. Soon it is unfrozen and unleashed, creating havoc and terror as it changes forms and becomes one of them. Put this frightening story together with outstanding performances, incredible special effects by Roy Arbogast, make-up by Rob Bottin, and special visual effects by master Albert Whitlock and you've got a movie that Time Magazine describes as 'Horrific'.
