StoryAntarctica: an extraordinary continent of awesome beauty. It is also home to an isolated outpost where a discovery full of scientific possibility becomes a mission of survival when a creature is unearthed by a crew of international scientists. In the thriller The Thing, paranoia spreads among a group of researches as they encounter something inhuman that has the ability to turn itself into an exact replica of any living being.
Paleontologist Kate Lloyd has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbed across a creature buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the ice eons ago. But it is about to wake up.
When a simple experiment frees The Thing from its frozen prison, Kate must join the crew's pilot Carter to keep it from killing them off one at a time, and in this vast, intense land, a parasite that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish.
The Thing serves as a prelude to John Carpenter's classic 1982 Film of the same name.
