A remote American research station in Antarctica is suddenly put on alert when a helicopter from a nearby Norwegian station crashes near their base after seemingly trying to shoot a runaway sled dog. Members of the American team set out to the Norwegian base and find the burned remains of a strange creature and the members of the base either missing or dead. Overnight, the Norwegian sled dog which the Americans have sheltered mutates and attacks the other sled dogs it is kenneled with, trying to absorb them into its body. The research team soon realizes it is a shape-changing creature that can assimilate other living life forms, replicating them perfectly, and they don’t know which members of the team have already been taken over. Directed by John Carpenter and starring Kurt Russell.

Rated R. Run time approx. 2 hours.
