Man is the warmest place to hide…
For our opening screening we decided to show the 1982 classic that gave us our name.
Needing no introduction, this story of a research team at Antarctica's Outpost 31 being hunted by a shape-shifting alien has captivated cult film fans for over 30 years.
One of the greatest horror films ever made, this marks perhaps the pinnacle of John Carpenter's extraordinary career, up there with his legendary Halloween. Famously, special effects artist Rob Bottin ended up exhausted in hospital following his astonishing work bringing the titular monster to life.
Worth watching for the ground-breaking effects alone, The Thing also boasts stellar performances from Kurt Russell and co and was simply a no-brainer to kick off our new cult screening event. So get yourselves down to The Void on Thursday 11th of October and experience the ultimate in alien terror.
Location: The Void Cinema
Running Time: 109 Minutes
