Master of horror John Carpenter and frequent collaborator Kurt Russell take you to a remote outpost in Antarctica, as a group of American research scientists discover that a nearby camp has been destroyed and a strange craft has been found beneath the ice. Under attack by an alien lifeform that can assume the shape of its victims, The Thing is a harrowing combination of slow burn paranoia and gruesome body horror. With groundbreaking creature special effects by Rob Bottin (Total RecallSe7en), music by the great Ennio Morricone. and tension that can only be cut with a flame-thrower, The Thing is best viewed on the big screen with a crowd. Who knows, that stranger sitting next to you in the dark may not be who they seem… (USA, 1982, 109 min., color, DCP / Director: John Carpenter / Screenwriter: Bill Lancaster, based on the story by John W.
