About The Thing
A slavishly devoted prequel to the John Carpenter classic of the same name. The story focuses on the group of researchers who investigated a life-form found frozen in Antarctica before Kurt Russell and his gang showed up. If you've seen the 1982 film, you'll know what happened to them. This version starts when paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) goes to investigate the strange findings, along with Dr. Halvorson (Ulrich Thomsen), his Norwegian-American team and Sam Carter (Joel Edgerton), a gruff pilot. Eventually the alien breaks free at the facility and begins killing various crew members. The rest of the team became frightened and paranoid when they realise that the thing transforms itself into whoever it has killed, and must find a way to detect its presence if they want to survive.
