THE THING(15, 102 mins) 5/10
MEDICAL officer Dr Sander Halvorson (Ulrich Thomsen) and research assistant Adam Finch (Eric Christian Olsen) invite palaeontologist Dr Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) to join them at a dig close to the South Pole.
Kate joins the expedition under station commander Edvard Wolner (Trond Espen Seim), who eventually reveals the corpse of a creature entombed in the ice. Halvorson resolves to harvest a sample of the creature's DNA, but the creature goes on the rampage.
"This thing can and probably has replicated a person," warns Kate, as paranoia turns the team members against one another.
