“John Carpenter’s 1982 horror classic THE THING is, like Whiteout, a thriller set in a US base in Antarctica… some of the most extravagant horror sequences in film… Kurt Russell is the helicopter pilot who witnesses a metamorphosing alien gradually consume, through replication and subsequent dismemberment, the base’s human residents. The imagery, often verging on the Dalí-eque, is still powerful. The shot of the scampering skull-spider will stay with you.” – The Times of London


109 Minutes
USA, 1982

"One of the most underrated horror movies of the '80s. It's certainly one of the most enjoyably gross."
