THE THING (2011): Discussion, Spoilers, Reviews


Taking place three days before the events of the John Carpenter film, paleontologist Kate Lloyd is recruited by scientist Sander Halversen and his assistant Adam Goodman to join a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across a crashed extraterrestrial spaceship buried beneath the ice of Antarctica. They discover the frozen corpse of a creature that seems to have died in the crash eons ago.

After recovering the creature in a frozen block of ice, they transport it back to their base and conduct an experiment which frees the alien from its frozen prison. Kate joins the crew's pilot, Carter, to keep it from killing and imitating them one at a time, using its uncanny ability to mimic any life form it absorbs through digestion, and potentially reaching civilization.
