The Thing (2011)

The Thing

Kate is a paleontologist invited by Dr. Sandor to join his team at the Arctic. his team found an extraordinary spacecraft deep underneath the ice, and not far from the craft was the remains of a strange creature. they brought the remains back to their camp for further experiments. but as the ice melted, the creature reanimated and began attacking them, infecting them into becoming a creature like it. Kate struggled with the team to identify who was infected and who was still human, but it was almost impossible to differentiate when the infected didn't even realize that they were.

it was strange to find out that The Thing (2011) was a prequel to The Thing (1982). unfortunately we haven't got a chance to catch The Thing (1982), therefore The Thing (2011) was a completely new film for us. we half expected the film to be some cheesy horror but after the alien creature reanimated, the unique idea of how it increased its population was compelling enough to have us feeling impressed. the goriness and disturbing scenes were enough to satisfy, but not enough to cause nauseousness, which was definitely good.
