Did I actually write this review? I may have been replaced when I stepped away from my computer. This movie represents what a horror film should be. Tense, dark and scary. Mix in some excellent special effects and you have the perfect horror film. John Carpenter makes a great alien film, set in isolated Antarctica you just don’t know who to trust when a shape-shifting being is around. I jumped out of my seat a few times during this one and just had my jaw hit the floor when I saw the transformation sequences this film produces with the alien. Incredibly cool and really shames most horror films of today. If you’ve never seen this, make it your next horror film… just don’t watch it alone.
