My Penny of View : A bunch of scientists discovered a crashed spaceship and a frozen corpse of a creature underneath the ice of Antarctica. Kate was one of the scientists that participated in the discovery. The Thing has been transported back to their research center for further research. Dr. Sander as the lead of the scientists insisted to retrieve tissue sample from the creature. On that night, the scientists were having celebration about their discovery. Due to curiosity, one of the members went to check out the creature and suddenly it escaped out from the ice and it killed the man. The group of people found out the attack and quickly split into groups to search for the alien. Are they manage to find the alien? Who will survive?

This movie is a prequel to John Carpenter's own 1982 same title film. What exactly is The Thing? It was an alien that was able to imitate human cells and transform into human face and body. Besides, it even have brilliant brain and manage to hide within the group. It never reveal its alien's face until it attack another human. This is the tricky part. The group of people hardly determine which one is the alien and full of suspicious. The alien is extremely smart and its objective is to return to its spaceship. I'm quite fascinating with the ability of The Thing but the movie flow went a bit slow and seems like lack of some excitement. I think the most interesting part will be Kate (the only survivor) caught inside the spaceship. She was almost caught by The Thing. I was getting colder when watching the movie, maybe because the setting of the movie was held in Antarctica, one of the coldest and driest place on earth.
