The Thing (2011)

de Matthijs van Heijningen

Trailer

Synopsis

What is it about Carpenter movies that always make then so ideal for sublime remakes or juicy sequels? Jean-François Richet already showed that it was possible to update Assault on Precinct 13 without losing a single iota of tension. Now, the creators of Dawn of the Dead are back at it again with a prequel of The Thing that will take us back to ends of the earth to be frozen in terror. The paleontologist Kate Lloyd arrives in the Antarctic to join an expedition that is about to make the discovery of the century. Something has been buried in the ice for a hundred thousand years. Something that looks dead, but that’s ready to wake up from its lethargy.
