  • One of the great science fiction classics made in the 50s -- the period when the genre thrived. A group of US scientists and servicemen, stationed on the North Pole, encounter an odd magnetic phenomenon that confuses all of their instruments. When the crew goes out to investigate, they find a block of ice containing an odd life form. But this is no archeological discovery -- because when the block melts, an invincible, grotesque creature, smarter and more powerful than humans, rises and goes on a rampage, almost destroying the polar station. Now the occupants of the station have to stop The Thing before it kills them... and embarks on its plan to destroy the planet.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...[A] sci-fi classic..."
    USA Today

    "...THE THING is a rare cautionary Cold War tale that's also plain fun..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    5 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a Cold War masterpiece, paranoid tension building slowly as a team of egghead scientists and square-jawed air force officers discover a deep-frozen UFO."
    Total Film

    "Dimitri Tiomkin's rousing score cranks up the tension while Russell Harlan's atmospheric cinematography helps convince us that we really are in some icy wilderness."
