SCIENCE FICTION DOUBLE FEATURE
The Thing From Another World
As much an influence on John Carpenter’s The Thing as the story on which they’re both based, the original black & white film offers a spin on unknown evil that has every bit as much to say about fear. (The Thing From Another World kicks off a double feature with The Thing Friday & Saturday night.)
When scientists report a UFO near his North Pole research base, the Air Force sends in a team to investigate. What they find is a wrecked spaceship and a humanoid creature frozen in the ice. They bring their discovery back to the base, but disagree over what to do with it. Meanwhile, the creature is accidentally thawed and begins wreaking havoc.
