About The Thing

Members of an American scientific research outpost in Antarctica find themselves battling a parasitic alien organism capable of perfectly imitating its victims. They soon discover that this task will be harder than they thought, as they donโ€™t know which members of the team have already been assimilated and their paranoia threatens to tear them apart.

This 1982 John Carpenter classic features a charming Kurt Russell and some truly freaky special effects. The blood test sequence is one of the tensest scenes in movie history.
