The Thing (1982) is a fantastic horror/sci-fi film.
Directed by John Carpenter, the film is based on a short story and an earlier film from 1951 (which is also an amazing movie).
A research team in Antarctica is hunted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of its victims. The protagonist of the film is R.J. MacReady, played by Kurt Russell.
The extraordinary special effects were orchestrated by an eccentric effects expert called Rob Bottin who was only 23-years-old at the time.
