In John Carpenter’s cult classic reimagining of The Thing from Another World, titled The Thing, a group of scientists become paranoid when an alien parasite begins to infect them. Stuck all the way out in isolation in Antarctica their first sign of trouble comes from a dog running from Swedes in a helicopter. Unbeknownst to the dog is a shape-shifting alien that wants to infect more living beings and spread. And it does just that as the camera is always privy to the body horror it causes as it transforms, killing off characters in unique ways and creating tension as they cannot tell the alien from the human.
