Directed by John Carpenter (1982, 109 min.). 35mm.

In Antarctica, the winter of 1982: a dozen scientists dwelling in an American research base discover an alien spacecraft nearby. Soon after, their facility is invaded by a shape-shifting organism that can assimilate and impersonate anything it touches. It’s up to the crew members to figure out who among them is really human—and who is a horrific impostor. Kurt Russell and Wilford Brimley star in this wintry tale of terror and isolation, a box-office flop that is now considered one of the greatest horror films of all time.
