Storyline

In a remote mining facility located somewhere in the Arctic circle, a monster kills 96 of the 98 people there. The 2 remaining survivors try to hide from it, but with food and water running low, they decide to escape to a safe zone as it contains an abundance of supplies. As soon as they leave, however, they are instantly pursued by the monster through large rooms and narrow corridors with only a couple of guns to defend themselves with. Written by Brian Berta

Comparison to Carpenters The Thing is inevitable but this movie really succeeded where the remake failed. It is claustrophobic, tensed n fast paced.
5 November 2017 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

Recently been on a spree of revisiting Tales from the crypt on Youtube. Was searching for a short horror film n when i saw the name of Neill Blomkamp, i was totally interested in checking this out. The 22 minutes was worth it. Comparison to Carpenters The Thing is inevitable but this movie really succeeded where the remake failed. It is claustrophobic, tensed, fast paced, superbly acted n directed. The film is set in the mining colony in the Arctic circle. We r told that outta 98 crew only two r remaining. One of em is wounded n blinded n the other a frightened junior female crew member. The monster/thing is made up of body parts of the dead members. There is no safe chamber or place to hide as the monster has the fingerprint ids of all the doors. The creature was terrific though.
