South 13, Belfast

price: £10


South 13 will be converted into a snowbound landscape for this unique Halloween screening of a John Carpenter classic. With a thick, thick air of intense paranoia and jaw-dropping monster effects work, The Thing stands as one of the greatest films of both the horror and science fiction genres.

The Thing sees a group of researchers trapped in a facility in the Antarctic, pursued by an insidious creature from another world that can perfectly mimic human form before attacking its victims. Shiver…

As cosy as Kurt Russell looks in his big furry coat, he’s gonna need a lot more protection than that to deal with what’s waiting for him in the snow. The Thing is a peerless masterpiece of relentless suspense, retina-wrecking visual excess and outright, nihilistic terror.
