“We’re not getting out of here alive. But neither is that thing.” ~ The perfect horror sandbox. Remote arctic base runs in with a shapeshifting alien force from deep space and deeper nightmares. The thing’s unique adaptability is matched only by its intelligence and willingness to evoke its spindly goopy horror at the drop of a hat. Kurt Russell is playing chess against the monster the whole film. Survival turns into a cage match against a cosmic force of impossible evil. Does Mac give Childs a bottle of oil at the end? Either way, the thing lives on in ice, ready to destroy the world. Cool.
