Why watch this film?
Uncomfortable, disgusting, cold, paranoid. These are just some of the adjectives that can characterize this masterpiece by John Carpenter ('Christine, the Car Killer') and yet it still won't be enough to do justice to what this movie conveys on the screens. After all, through a story full of twists and turns, the viewer is faced with a terrifying possibility: that of aliens passing themselves off as humans, colleagues, friends. Here, in 'The Thing', we are the means of transport for these extraterrestrial creatures. How to fight them? There are several dilemmas that Carpenter puts into the plot, intensified by a suffocating performance by Kurt Russell ('Trail of Evil') and the intense and disturbing soundtrack by Ennio Morricone ('The Untouchables'). Then, at the end, when the credits roll, it's impossible not to think: what if they're already among us?
