The Thing (1982)

We all need a good dose of winter-y horror, don’t we? And there’s nothing more winter-y (and horrifying) than a double bill (because baby when it’s cold out – you need layers!) featuring Stanley Kubrick‘s masterpiece THE SHINING followed by John Carpenter‘s THE THING on Saturday, December 30. See one, or layer up and see ’em both for one sweet price!!

John Carpenter’s remake of Howard Hawke’s 1951 classic THE THING is a bleak, tense and frightening sci-fi thriller that delivers some truly memorable practical and makeup effects, in addition to Kurt Russell‘s truly memorable performance. THE THING is an ice-cold white-knuckle chiller about about scientists in the Antarctic who are confronted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of the people that it kills. 

THE THING is a peerless masterpiece of relentless suspense, retina-wrecking visual excess and outright, nihilistic terror.” (Empire Magazine)

THE THING is one of [Carpenter‘s] greatest moments, creating a terrifying atmosphere of claustrophobia, suspense and paranoia. And Kurt Russell is as good as he’s ever been, wearing one of the best beards in movie history.” (Total Film)

THE THING (John Carpenter, 1982 / 109 mins / PG) It’s the first week of winter in 1982. An American Research Base is greeted by an alien force, that can assimilate anything it touches. It’s up to the members to stay alive, and be sure of who is human, and who has become one of the Things.

THE SHINING (Stanley Kubrick, 1980 / 144 mins / 18A) Jack Torrance becomes winter caretaker at the isolated Overlook Hotel in Colorado, hoping to cure his writer’s block. He settles in along with his wife, Wendy, and his son, Danny (Danny Lloyd), who is plagued by psychic premonitions. As Jack’s writing goes nowhere and Danny’s visions become more disturbing, Jack discovers the hotel’s dark secrets and begins to unravel into a homicidal maniac hell-bent on terrorizing his family.
