The Thing

INFORMACJE O IMPREZIE

Isolation. Small groups. An infectious, invisible virus, leading to distrust and cabin-fever.

Given the current global pandemic, we would like to show an allegorical representation of what happens, when caution is conflated with accusation.

We open on a desolate, snowy landscape where we see a dog being chased and shot at by a helicopter. The chase draws near an American research outpost, where researchers come out to witness the ruckus. The dog runs into the American camp, but the foreigners don’t cease fire. The Americans conclude that the foreigners’ gone mad, and promptly kill them in self-defence. An investigation of a nearby Norwegian research outpost is embarked upon, where they discover the ghoulishly mutilated remnants of several people, and find clues which seemingly indicate an alien presence. From here, everything goes downhill.

The Thing is a body-horror film from the mind of John Carpenter, and is now considered a “must-watch” horror classic. It deals with themes of survival, trust and morality, and is revered for its unrelenting suspense and its spectacular practical effects, as well as a morose sense of an inevitable, horrifying fate.
