The Thing (1982)

Scientists in the Antarctic are confronted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of the people that it kills.

Awesome movie and the overall atmosphere is great. The characters paranoia and mistrust with each another is really compelling viewing.

My favourite horror movie! The atmosphere is excellent, the FX are amazing, no CGI bullshits, only models and puppets. Kurt Russel and Keith David are awesome.
One of best Carpenter's movies.

Screw CGI, the mechanical effects here still make their impact. The Thing remains a claustrophobic classic that generally doesn't stray into the clichés we're used to with this kind of story. And Kurt Russell. 'nuff said.
