Rated 4 out of 5

“The Thing” is a science fiction horror film directed by John Carpenter and released in 1982. The movie is a remake of the 1951 film “The Thing from Another World,” which was itself based on the novella “Who Goes There?” by John W. Campbell Jr.

The movie follows a group of researchers in Antarctica who encounter a shape-shifting alien that can assimilate and imitate any organism it comes into contact with. As the researchers try to figure out who among them has been infected by the alien, paranoia and suspicion begin to set in, leading to a series of tense and violent confrontations.

The film received mixed reviews upon its initial release, but has since become a cult classic and is regarded as one of Carpenter’s best works. It is known for its innovative practical effects, which were created by makeup artist Rob Bottin, and for its dark and tense atmosphere.
