One of the more mid-tier B-movies of the 1950s, "The Thing From Another World" nevertheless creates a sense of unease that perfectly reflected the fears of invaders during the decade.

This is more than some silly drive-in 50's horror. The characters and plot are precise and the science is explained in full. It's not outright scary, but does have some surprises and tense moments.

Very interesting introduction to no-mainstream horror, where the killer is more of a concept than a material thing.Ive noticed no close up to the creature, and then i read the trivia on it, and was pleased to read the reason. Very interesting film for sci-fi lovers.
