1982104 MinsHorror
An alien organism infiltrates an Antarctic research station and takes over Kurt Russell's understandably jittery team at a cellular level - once it's done with their dogs... A genuinely mesmerising lesson in horror and suspense, boasting some of the most gory, ground-breaking and disturbing special FX ever put on screen. Undoubtedly director John Carpenter's finest hour, it's also one of Quentin Tarantino's key influences for Reservoir Dogs.
