The Thing 1951

description written by member Bobby:

Howard Hawks 1951 The Thing is a masterpiece of mood and mounting tension. A U.S. Air Force crew stationed near the North Pole finds a meteor that actually turns out to be a downed UFO. They find an alien pilot inside the ship and bring it back to base in a block of ice. The alien is accidentally revived and when it is found out that it needs human blood to reproduce the die is cast for a showdown between it and the courageous group of scientists and servicemen.
