    John Carpenter's 'The Thing' (1982) is a stripped-back body-horror science-fiction film revolving around a team in an Antarctic research station that are infiltrated by a parasitic extraterrestrial life-form which assimilates other organisms and mimics them.

    After a Norweigan helicopter chases a dog along the antarctic tundra in an attempt to kill it, we are invited to watch a tense atmospheric 'whodunnit' as the research teams struggle to understand the alien that has infiltrated the base, and the extent of its…

    John Carpenter's only official remake (1982) of a Howard Hawks film turns out to be his least Hawksian effort. There is no cohesion within the male group at Carpenter's antarctic research station; when the shape-shifting monster comes in for the attack, it's every man for himself. And although the group members are played by familiar, well-defined character actors, the terse banality of the dialogue makes them all sound and seem alike—it's hard to tell who's being attacked, and hard to…

    A true horror classic. A body-horror work of art. One amazing piece of cinema then, now and forever. If you don't like this movie then I don't think you could enjoy any alien movie, ever.

    Un ambiente desolador, una criatura aterradora y unos efectos especiales legendarios hacen de este remake de Carpenter una de las mejores cintas de terror hasta la fecha.
    Kurt Russell encarna a la definición personificada de ''puto amo'' enfrentándose a un ser capaz de imitar formas físicas en una película de ritmo acelerado y una tensión ambiental generada por la constante sospecha de que uno de los personajes pueda haber dejado de ser humano. Una tensión, por otra parte, poco aprovechada,…
