A UFO crashes near an isolated military base in the far Arctic . . . Scientists recover the craft's now-frozen alien pilot and take it back to their base. While debating whether to study the alien, try to communicate with it or kill it, the pilot awakens -- and the scientists' question of if it is friend or foe is quickly answered. Now, trapped in a frozen wasteland with an unstoppable, nonhuman creature that sees them as prey, the small band of scientists come face to face with The Thing. This classic science fiction film is based on the story "Who Goes There?" by John W. Campbell Jr.

Critics Consensus: As flying saucer movies go, The Thing From Another World is better than most, thanks to well-drawn characters and concise, tense plotting.
