The Thing ★★★★½

Chalky snow, orange flare, crisp skin, plastic bones, crimson, and succulent flesh. A bottle of J&B Scotch emptied in an Antarctic snowscape - that last bit of warmth now lost in a hellish visualisation where evil is bared to its bones. Evil knows that man is the warmest place to hide. Evil has always been here, lurking behind the walls of our flesh and we are the mask that conceals it. No doubt that this movie was too ahead of its time.

"Why don't we just wait here for a little while, see what happens?"
