The Thing (1982)

We’re kicking off our “Kurt n’ Carpenter Triple Feature” on Saturday, August 13 with a perfect summer slice of wintry horror that may leave you feeling… A little cold. Kurt Russell delivers a career-high performance in The Thing, a truly frightening story about scientists in the Antarctic who are confronted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of the people that it kills. Carpenter’s remake of Howard Hawke‘s 1951 classic is, perhaps, a more bleak, tense and frightening sci-fi thriller that delivers some truly memorable practical and makeup effects along the way. A definite big screen must-see!

“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
