The Thing is an 2011 science fiction film directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr., and written by Eric Heisserer.
Paleontologist Kate Lloyd and her two assistants Davida Morris and Adam Goodman join a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across a crashed extraterrestrial spaceship buried in the ice of Antarctica. They discover a creature that seems to have died in the crash eons ago, The Thing.
When an experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison, they join the crew`s pilot, Carter, to keep it from killing and imitating them one at a time, using its uncanny ability to mimic any life form it absorbs through digestion, and potentially reaching civilization.
