Directed by John Carpenter | 1982

With Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, Keith David

"If it's the most vividly gruesome monster ever to stalk the screen that audiences crave, then The Thing is the thing."
—Variety

When a team of scientists stationed in Antarctica takes in a stray Husky, man’s best friend turns out to be an alien capable of inhabiting the bodies of animals… or humans. In this nightmarish revision of Hawks’ sci-fi thriller The Thing from Another World, Carpenter upped the ante—throwing in explosive effects, piling on the gore, and mining the bleak, snowbound landscape and claustrophobic interiors for spine-tingling atmosphere—alongside an eerie, doomful score by Ennio Morricone (a rare instance of Carpenter bringing in an outside composer).
