Film Series: The Thing

1982. USA. Dir: John Carpenter. With Kurt Russell, Keith David. 109 min.



A grizzled whiskey-guzzling Russell and a team of Antarctic researchers fight for survival against one of the most disturbing monstrosities to creep across the screen: a deceptive alien that takes on the form of its victims. The brain behind Halloween combines nerve-shredding tension with unmatched creature effects and an Ennio Morricone score.
