John Carpenter's 'The Thing'
9:15pm - Sunday, Jan 29, 2023
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)
