Directed by John Carpenter. With Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, Keith David, Richard Masur. A research team in Antarctica is hunted by a shape-shifting alien that assumes the appearance of its victims.
I’ve never seen this before, if only because the original film completely broke my brain when I saw it at a young age. John Carpenter’s version of the story works both as a retelling and as a sequel of sorts. The effects were great and the acting pretty fun, but having a black man in the antarctic with roller skates and a ghetto blaster has not aged well. Additionally, having actual dogs in movie made me feel somewhat shitty, cause it was obvious that most of them were straight up not having a great experience.
