In this long-gestating prequel to John Carpenter’s 1982 sci-fi horror classic, an American scientist (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) joins a Norwegian research team to investigate an alien spaceship buried in Antarctica. But jubilation turns to fear when it becomes clear that the lifeform they find with it survives by invading and copying other living tissue - with horrific results. Fuelling the paranoia with gloriously yucky effects, director Matthijs van Heijningen ensures his debut is a head-splitting baptism of fire... and ice.
