The Thing is a Horror/Science Fiction/Thriller movie directed by John Carpenter. It is a remake of the 1951 film The Thing from Another World. It tells the story of a research team in Antarctica that is threatened by a shape-shifting alien that can assume the shapes of its victims. It spawned a Video Game and a 2011 re-remake.


It was a commercial and critical failure at the time, but is viewed much more positively today. [citation needed]
