Sounds like The Day After Tomorrow (2004) with The Thing from Another World (1951) [based on the 1938 novella "Who Goes There?" by John W. Campbell, Jr.] with touches of the colony on LV-426 in Aliens (1986) and probably more stylized bordering on a scifihorror movie like Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010).

something about a comparison to the new Doctor Who & the Ice Warriors was made on io9.
