About The Thing

The Thing is a 1982 sci-fi horror film about a parasitic alien attacking a group of American researchers based in Antarctica. This creature, referred to as the thing, will take control its preys’ organ and body, then deform it and turn it to a monstrous being to attack other people.

The tricky part is no a group can’t tell who’s infected since the symptom is likely to remain unseen until it actually strikes. This, in result, creates paranoia atmosphere and distrust among the survivors. It can be said that the thing doesn’t only attack physically, but mentally.
