Released:  Friday, June 25, 1982  
Length:  109 minutes
Studio: Universal Pictures
Genre: Horror, Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Rating: The Thing is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of AmericaUnder 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.


A team of scientists at a remote Antarctic outpost discover a buried spaceship with an unwelcome alien survivor still alive. Bombastic special effects overwhelm the suspense and the solid cast. Less a remake of the 1951 science fiction classic than a more faithful version of John Campbell's short story "Who Goes There?," since the seeds/spores take on human shapes.
