Dir. John Carpenter. 1982, 109 mins. DCP. With Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, Keith David. In remaking Howard Hawks's The Thing from Another World, horror master extraordinaire John Carpenter fashioned his own equally chilling classic. Featuring some of the ooey-gooiest special effects ever created for the screen, this awesomely terrifying film follows a group of scientists trapped in a remote Antarctic outpost who are beset by a shape-shifting extraterrestrial force that is able to enter anyone's body undetected. With its jaw-dropping gallery of creepy crawlies and gorgeous widescreen compositions, this is one to see in a theater—in the dark.

Venue Description: Museum of the Moving Image advances the understanding, enjoyment, and appreciation of the art, history, technique, and technology of film, television, and digital media. In its expanded and renovated facilities - acclaimed for both its accessibility and bold design - the Museum presents exhibitions; screenings of significant works; discussion programs featuring actors, directors, craftspeople, and business leaders; and education programs which serve more than 50,000 students each year. The Museum also houses a significant collection of moving-image artifacts.
