At a remote Antarctica outpost, a research team of misfits and malcontents comes under attack by a shape-shifting alien lifeform that had been trapped in the ice for 100,000 years. As the creature rages through the men, assuming one identity after another, the paranoia rises as the temperatures outside plummet. A fantastic cast, lead by the never-better Kurt Russell, amazing, now-legendary practical effects, and John Carpenter’s atmospheric direction make The Thing a chilling classic.
