With a short intro from Dr Darren Elliot Smith

Following on from our first monthly-special ‘late-night’ retro film screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark in August.  We now bring you… THE THING.

Over the years, star Kurt Russell and Master of Horror John Carpenter have teamed up on a multitude of films (Big Trouble in Little China, Escape from New York and Elvis to name a few) but of all their collaborations, 1982s horror/sci-fi amalgam The Thing surely tops the list!

A research team based out in the snowy wilds of Antarctica find themselves besieged by a terrifying shape-shifting creature which has found its way into their base. When it becomes clear that the creature can take the form of any organism it so chooses, the tension within the team reaches breaking point, and any one of them could be… The Thing.

This very special screening will have a short introduction from Dr Darren Elliot Smith (who you may have seen introduce the very divisive Hereditary back in July).
