(1982, John Carpenter) "An accomplished horror movie, set in an Antarctic winter and shot on Canadian locations. A metamorphosing alien, formidably intelligent and wholly evil, has been released from the ice and terrorises a US research outpost. It's an expensive remake of Howard Hawks's inexpensive The Thing From Another World (1951), the vintage film the kids watch on TV while terrible things are going on all around them in Halloween, the 1978 horror flick that made Hawks's disciple Carpenter famous." – Philip French, The Guardian. Approx. 108 min. 35mm.
