The Thing From Another World (1951)- The Los 366

For 2020 I will be listing what I feel are 366 essential horror films that all fans should watch. This list will include many of the best horror movies ever made as well as important films that I believe should be watched as well.

The Thing From Another World
Dir- Christian Nyby

Scientists in an Arctic base discover a flying saucer buried under the ice with a humanoid creature that is returned to their headquarters for study. Once thawed, the creature comes to life and wrecks havoc on the station with the scientists and military crewmembers debating on the best way to handle the situation. "The Thing From Another World" was based on the 1938 novella "Who Goes There," written by John Campbell, yet changes were made to make the creature more human-like with a plant-based cell structure. The novella featured a shape-shifting alien that would be better imagined in the 1982 John Carpenter film "The Thing." The movie is considered a classic in both Sci-Fi and Horror movie genres and remains one of the best movies of the Atomic Monster era that emerged in the 1950s due to the threat of the Cold War.
