“John Carpenter's The Thing is a horror masterpiece." Roger Malcolm, ClashHollywood.com

What you fear most is inside you... Man is the warmest place to hide. 

In the winter of 1982, a twelve-man research team at a remote Antarctic research station discovers an alien buried in the snow for over 100,000 years. Soon unfrozen, the form-changing alien wreaks havoc, creates terror and becomes one of them. Horror-meister John Carpenter (Halloween, Escape From New York) teams Kurt Russell's outstanding performance with incredible visuals to build this chilling version of the classic The Thing From Another World.
