The Thing ★★★★½

An otherworldly monster unearthed from its frost-bitten tomb by naive explorers. A wolf-like head, an array of suffocating tentacles, and an arachnid body, the hideous beast commonly referred to as "The Thing" from its prey devours any living entity in sight with breakneck speed. Clearing a path for complete transformation into something else, or, someone else. Someone near and dear to your heart. Confusion. Fear. Terror. It all strikes at once. One of them, your closest companion or trusted ally, is the monster. Trusting anyone other than yourself is futile, even suicidal. Even the possibility of surviving the night is questionable at best. There's no way out. No escape. The only thing left to do, is wait.
