A bunch of paranoid scientists versus an alien creature that can assume the form of any living organism, all set against the backdrop of the endless white plains of Antarctica. What could possibly go wrong? John Carpenter’s The Thing is rightly regarded as one of the most iconic horror films of all time. And for a lot of good reasons: Kurt Russell is suitably nihilistic, Ennio Morricone’s minimalist melodies in an unconventional synth position burrow under your skin, and the extremely physical visual effects make you feel like The Thing is going to jump out of the screen at you at any moment. After this film, you’ll never look at dogs the same way again.
