From a box office flop to a home video hit, John Carpenter's The Thing is now widely recognized as one of the greatest horror films of all time. Based on a novella from the 1930s and the Howard Hawks film adaptation from the 1950s, The Thing is about a group of scientists in the Arctic who stumble upon an alien creature that invades lifeforms on a cellular level and transforms them. It's a wonderfully made and extremely paranoid movie, the practical effects are top notch, and it's a lot of fun if you're looking to be scared. If you've never seen The Thing, do yourself a favor and check it out!
