The Thing from Another World
Ice Fest: The Hawks/Nyby classic; Theremin intro by Peter Johnson

This is one of the better science-fiction cheapie films, one that became a cult classic. It is a wonderfully inane film about a flying saucer landing on the North Pole and a superior alien emerging who looks like Frankenstein. Director Howard Hawks wastes no time with any liberal messages about why this creature came here, instead the film has a jovial Air Force crew snappily banter at each other, a sparring romantic relationship develop between the womanizing captain and the independent-minded secretary; and, for sheer quirkiness, we see plants as monsters crying for more blood to spawn more monsters. The cast is perfect, their non-chalant attitude gives the film its raucous mood and allows the warlike atmosphere between beast and man to be a battle over brawn versus wits. (D. Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews)
