The Thing

(The Thing)


A Norwegian helicopter tracks a wolf dog in the ice of the Antarctic. The hunting leads the beast to the station of the Scientific National Institute of United States. But the place does not seem to stop the determination of hunters to kill the beast. The former hurt one of the scientist of the group. In riposte, a Norwegian is destroyed and the helicopter explodes.

Unable to understand what happened, McNeary and the Doctor Copper leave to the encounter of the Norwegian camp. What they finds there is only death and desolation. They equally discover there a block of half melted ice that seems it had enclosed someone or something...
