The Nerds vs The Thing: Fright Night Movie: The Colonial Theater in Phoenixville

Let's Go To The Colonial Theater in Phoenixville PA...For Their Monthly Fright Night Movie...To See The 1982 Classic, Scary, Sci-Fi Flick...John Carpenter's The Thing!

“The Thing” starring Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley and Keith David is an updated version of “The Thing from Another World” (1951) and is directed by John Carpenter (“Halloween”). The story takes place in Antarctica where the United States government has set up a facility to do research, experiments, and, well, they never really do say what they are doing down there, but that isn’t important. What is important is that this research team gets a visit from the Norwegian research team that is only a few miles away. Turns out the Norwegians found something in the snow, something from another world that can imitate anything to perfection. Guess what? Now it is imitating the US research team. This is a great “who goes there?” movie.  It gets to the point where no one can trust anyone. As the body count goes up, the temperature in Antarctica goes down and these researchers run out of ideas on who is “the Thing” and who isn’t. This film has a great cast, great story, truly remarkable special effects, and brilliant make-up. Kurt Russell is excellent as the man who takes charge of the situation. Carpenter shapes Russell into the leader and the hero so that the audience has someone to trust. By the end, you know, as they know, you can’t trust anyone but yourself.

    I'm getting psyched to this one! One of my favorite classics that I love to watch over and over. I almost watched it last week before I saw it was playing at the Colonial and posted this...glad I didn't. I'm excited to see it on the big screen again after 30+ years. ;)

      Yes on the look out for large dogs running around in the snow and behaving strangely!
