Storyline

Chandler, the creator of the Gemini device in the Arctic lab, is kept well hidden by his staff. His psychological arguments are conducted through an audio speaker system wired throughout the underground lab, and his voice leads Dr. Paul Thorson back to the entry room. Corporal Gordon reminds him that if they don't get inside the inner room, "there won't be a world". Paul screams there has never been a problem he can't solve. It turns out that Chandler is individually telling each of the four people what they want to hear, just to keep Paul from getting inside. Corporal Gordon is armed with an ax when Paul takes aim with his gun. Written by Dorkinbrooke

The Thing Redux
11 July 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There have been many films that use the arctic as a base from "The Thing from Another Planet" to its sequel, to "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms." There's a kind of isolation that can't be reproduced in other places. The intense cold outside makes everyone claustrophobic. The interrelationships are carved out of people's psyches where their intense belief in a kind of result take away their humanity to some extent. In this one, a man is sent to try to get a project back on track. What started out as a means of helping humanity has become a bomb that could end life on earth. Like a couple of the aforementioned films, reality gets tossed aside. While there are some flaws here, this was a very entertaining offering.
