John Carpenter's The Thing

John Carpenter's The Thing

11:00pm - Friday, Jan 25, 2019

We all need a good dose of winter-y horror, don't we? And there's nothing more winter-y (and horrifying) than a Friday Late Night Movie screening of John Carpenter's THE THING on January 25.

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)
