The Thing (1982).

For me, this is one of the best science fiction movies ever made.  It’s a horror show with high tension and enough melodrama to ensure a barbiturate is needed thereafter.

A durable microscope alien life-form that can survive in extreme habitats till it finds a suitable host.  That is a great concept, with Space an inhospitable nightmare for organisms.  Why not have a malevolent alien be a shape shifting gore infested virus.  It makes sense.

The 2011 Prequel also called ‘The Thing’ was a very well done introduction to John Carpenter’s classic.
