The Thing



Double Feature with ALIEN (7:00)

THE THING (1982) dir John Carpenter w/Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, T.K. Carter, David Clennon, Keith David, Richard Dysart [109 min; 35mm]
An alien parasite is discovered by an arctic research team and the crew quickly descends into paranoia when they find that it can appear human.

“One of those rare remakes that remains faithful to the premise of the original but does something unique with the concept.” – James Berardinelli, ReelViews

“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

“A paranoid masterpiece, and that rare remake that improves upon the original.” – Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
