|Disregard the cheesy monster-flick title.|
The plot: A shape-shifting deadly creature makes contact with an isolated group of people living in an Antartic base. The paranoia explodes as no one is able to know if someone in the group is actually the creature in disguise.
The audience doesn't know, either. And that's what's this movie is all about: suspense. It will keep you in the edge of your seat the whole runtime.
|This is just an action figure based on the movie, but it gives you the general idea.|
But that's not all. After all, this is a horror movie, not Twelve Angry Men. You won't just be seeing a group of men being suspicious of each other: you'll get to see tons of blood, flamethrowers, and some of the weirdest and fucked up images ever created on film.
Carpenter considers this as the first of his "apocalyptic trilogy", consisting of Prince of Darkness and In The Mouth of Madness. I haven't seen those two yet, but I think I will very soon.
So go watch it, if you haven't!
