Hey all you Creature Freaks, as you probably know Happy loves the old Classic Horror and Sci Fi movies , hell these are the movies that kept me up at night when I was a kid, God bless you Super Host , LOL.This fast paced thriller set in an Arctic research outpost has the familiar elements for the 1950's sci-fi movie: a hideous monster unleashed upon mankind, the U.S. military trying to cope with it, and the ever present scientist who wants a chance to glean the "wonders of the Universe" from said creature, all at the same time.
Howard Hawks' adaptation of John Campbell Jr.'s short story, "Who Goes There?" may not be completely faithful, but nonetheless, the suspenseful plot about an Arctic research team's discovery of a recently landed spaceship embedded in the ice, and more importantly, it's lone occupant is still gripping today.
