The Thing

The Thing is a 1982 American science fiction horror film directed by John Carpenter and written by Bill Lancaster. Based on the 1938 John W. Campbell Jr. novella 'Who Goes There?,' it tells the story of a group of American researchers in Antarctica who encounter the eponymous 'Thing,' a parasitic extraterrestrial life form that assimilates, then imitates other organisms. Production began in the mid 1970s as a faithful adaptation of the novella, but went through several directors and writers, each with different ideas on how to approach the story. Filming lasted about 12 weeks, beginning in August 1981 and took place on refrigerated sets in LA, Alaska and B.C. It had terrible early reviews and was called 'instant junk' but views have since shifted to call it one of the best science fiction and horror films ever made.

Titane

A car crash has disturbing consequences in this 2021 body horror film. Titane, written and directed by Julia Ducournau, stars Agathe Rousselle as a mentally disturbed woman who becomes pregnant after having sex with a car. A review from the BBC called it the "most shocking film of 2021." It's definitely not going to be for everyone, but Titane fluidly explores themes of sexuality, gender, identity and parenthood in tandem with Ducournau's now-signature body-horror sensibilities and gory gallows humour. You might watch peeking through your fingers, or you might be so horrified you can't look away -- and watch the entire film with your jaw dropped open. Don't let the popcorn fall out.
