A group of weary scientists enduring the winter in an isolated camp deep in Antarctica chance upon an alien spacecraft buried in the ice. Near the strange craft is the body of an alien being, frozen solid. Thinking they have made the find of a lifetime, the scientists bring the alien body back to camp and thaw it out. The alien awakens and proceeds to take over the identities of the scientists, one by one, body and all. The surviving men must discover who among them “the thing” is so that they can destroy it before it moves on to the heavily populated areas…
Based on both the short story by John W. Campbell, Jr. and the 1951 film produced by Howard Hawks, The Thing is John Carpenter's stunning masterpiece of horror. Rob Bottin’s awe-inspiring special effects of the creature’s many, ever-changing forms,the spectacular cast, the score understated, from Ennio Morricone and Dean Cundey’s camera are, also, sine-qua-non element which have turned The Thing into one of Carpenter's definitive films and a true horror classic.
