The Thing (1982)




   Day 9 takes you to the frozen tundra of Antarctica where a small group of scientists are about to have a close encounter of their own. The Thing is the rare quadruple masterpiece as it’s possibly the best work from director John Carpenter, special effect supervisor Rob Bottin, Cinematographer Dean Cundey and lead actor Kurt Russell. In fact EVERY performance in this movie is magnificent. The acting is nuanced, the music is subtle, the lighting & camera work is moody and the effects are WILDLY inventive. Every aspect of this movie is DRENCHED in a fear fueled paranoia designed to leave you AND the characters on screen wondering just who exactly IS the thing?
