My favourite horror movie, under appreciated on release, now rightly acclaimed as a horror classic

John Carpenter delivers the ultimate in alien terror in this chilling story about an Antarctic research team that discovers a form-changing alien buried in the snow for over 100,000 years.
Starring Kurt Russell

Info added by Rmcstar

In remote Antarctica, a group of American research scientists are disturbed at their base camp by a helicopter shooting at a sled dog. When they take in the dog, it brutally attacks both human beings and canines in the camp and they discover that the beast can assume the shape of its victims. A resourceful helicopter pilot (Kurt Russell) and the camp doctor (Richard Dysart) lead the camp crew in a desperate, gory battle against the vicious creature before it picks them all off, one by one.

    It's a thing, no other way of describing it without spoiling the film.

    Always watch this when on TV. For 1982 the special effects are great!

    No chance CGI could replicate the very organic effects in this film. It is a brilliant film.

    I say prequel is good too. Not that good as original but really worth watching.

    yeh i thought it was ok.
    Compared to the original its a dire mess, but as a standalone film its certainly way better than most of the tripe we get!
