A Horror classic

John carpenter's The Thing is a horror classic. Its fast paced, chilling, and #bestOfThriller. The movie takes in antarctic where a research camp is situated. The group of scientists comes across an Alien creature which can manifest into any living being and takes its form and shape. The special effects or rather practical effects are incredible and revolutionary for a movie set in the 1980s. Kurt Russell is in the lead and gives a typical Kurt Russell performance. Even after three decades of its release the movie still offers plenty of moments and has certainly aged well.
