The Thing
2011
 
This terrifying prequel to John Carpenter's 1982 classic of the same name tells the story of a team of Norwegian scientists who find an alien ship frozen in Antarctica. When the organism inside awakens, blood flows across the frozen landscape. Leading the group is pilot Carter (Joel Edgerton), who allies with paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) in a desperate attempt to rally the paranoid workers to combat the deadly threat.

Most of the film the Thing is merely a bogeyman, not an organism fighting for survival like the original. It's a passable horror prequel - the opening scene is cheap and melodramatic, and the malfunctioning flamethrower is a rip-off of the original.
