Another one of John Carpenter`s classics.  thingParanoia, snow, coldness, and monster on the run in a remote scientific facility in Antarctica, they are all portrayed quite realistically. And I really enjoyed in old school effects, there are no computer animation or special effects, just plain old rubber and paint.

Alien species that is able to take bodies and infect other people is making everyone doubt everyone, there is no trust and the tensions just keep growing. Although the movie looks a bit out-dated by today`s standards, this is the cornerstone of horror film-making and directing, enjoy this phenomenal movie. Oh yeah, do not let the trailer put you off, see the movie it`s well worth your time.
