The Thing

The Thing The Thing The Thing
The Thing The Thing The Thing
Scientists in the Antarctic are confronted by a shape-shifting « thing ».

First part of the apocalyptic trilogy made of Prince of Darkness and In the Mouth of Madness, The Thing is a milestone in the history of horror film as much as it represented a decisive step in Carpenter’s career. A challenging film for the team, some of which ended up in hospital, The Thing has long been misunderstood, until it was discovered anew thanks to video, and eventually recognised by all as a masterpiece.
