Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


This is a film I saw the day before yesterday. The first time I saw it was in my bed in Beijing in 2009. I still remember the situation at that time very clearly. However, I can’t remember the specific plot of the film, so I should watch it again.

The film tells the story of an American Antarctic station invaded by alien creatures. Everyone was resting in the US Antarctic survey station when a helicopter landed outside the station and exploded. A Norwegian escaped from the helicopter with a gun to shoot a dog. The Norwegians did not hit the dog, but hit the Americans watching. The American sheriff in the station shot and killed the Norwegians. After putting the dog into the house, we decided to go to Norway station to find out. The hero and two others came to Norway station and found a video tape, a terrible deformed body and a melted ice brick. The three brought back the body and the video. At this time, there was a riot in the station as soon as the dog was imprisoned in the dog cage. The dog turned into a monster and killed several dogs. After the crowd came, they burned the monster with a flamethrower. At this time, after the doctor dissected the corpse, a fat man with glasses explained the reason: the dog is not a dog, but a monster disguised as any creature. He determined that there were monsters disguised as adults in the station at this time. Later, in the Norwegians’ video, we found that the monster was dug out of the snow. The hero and two other people came to the excavation site and found a huge alien spacecraft. As soon as the three returned, the person who cleaned up the deformed body became the victim of the monster. At the same time, the fat man with glasses knew the harm of the monster through the computer, destroyed all the traffic and communication facilities in the station, and went crazy. They had to shut the fat man with glasses in a separate room. The doctor thought of using serum to distinguish people from monsters, but then found that the serum had been destroyed, making the sheriff and doctor suspects. Therefore, the public pushed the hero as the new leader, and the hero ordered everyone to tie up the suspected people. At this time, there was a sudden power failure in the station, and then someone disappeared. The heroes found the missing man’s burning clothes outside and knew that he was dead. Next, the hero finds a room light on himself. He leads a person to check it. A few hours later, the man who went with the hero ran back to the station and told everyone that the hero was a monster. The hero immediately broke in and confronted everyone else. In the fierce confrontation, a man in the station suddenly became a monster and ate the doctor’s arm. The hero killed the monster, cleared the suspect, and found a new test method. However, the dog watcher suddenly attacked the hero and was killed on the spot. After that, the hero uses a new method to find a monster and rule out the suspicion of others. When they looked for glasses and the fat man wanted to check him, they found that he was missing and the generator in the station was damaged. They also found an alien spaceship under the glasses fat man’s room. So, everyone destroyed the ship and began to destroy the measures in the station. They wanted the monster to be burned to death. Finally, among the only four people left, the monster was killed by the hero after killing two. The two who survived were watching the change and preparing for the next step.

When I first saw this film, I felt very shocked. Now I still have this feeling when I watch it again. Although it is a horror film, it is not a simple horror film. It is a horror film about “trust”. The film shows a series of problems faced by people in a closed space when there is a lack of trust between people. According to the film plot, when people have no trust, in order to meet their desire for survival, people will only kill each other. When there is no trust as the basis, everything is floating clouds, and they have no meaning. The experience of the U.S. station is just a repeat of the Norwegian station, which can be seen from the ruined Norwegian station. Because in Norway, people kill each other because of lack of trust! In the American station, the killing of dog watchers and the imprisonment of Sheriff are all choices made by others in order to survive. The behavior at this time can be said to be: it is better to kill a thousand by mistake than to let one go! It doesn’t matter if the innocent is dead! This is the theme of the film. This is also the main reason why the horror film released in 1982 has a good reputation. Of course, it has always appeared in imdb250.

Of course, aside from the profound theme of the film, this film is still a very excellent horror film. The structure of the film is the usual routine of Hollywood horror films: a confined space, a crisis, and then people are killed one by one in the crisis until the protagonist becomes the only or only survivor. It can be seen that the film itself does not get out of this stereotype, but the editor and director set up quite carefully in the plot, details and suspense, which makes the viewing of the film very high. Even if I have seen it twice, I will still be intoxicated in the film. There are many wonderful things in the film. For example, if the fat man with glasses destroys the facilities in the station, it will immediately remind people that the monster is doing damage. In fact, this is the fat man with glasses thinking of mankind; For example, dog watchers often want to sneak into the hero, which will make people think he is a monster. In fact, dog watchers just don’t want to be regarded as suspects; For another example, two real monsters were regarded as human beings and changed suddenly. This is the biggest suspense and horror plot of the film. Now it’s scary to think of it. In short, the film basically has a climax or plot turn every ten minutes, which makes the audience devote themselves to the film. Such an attractive film is rare, and it also appeared in the 1980s, which is more difficult and valuable.

In addition to the irresistible plot, the film’s excellent special effects and monster design also make the film a classic. The monsters in this film are quite disgusting, and their deformed appearance is very scary, making people feel like vomiting. It can be said that I have seen a lot of movies about monsters and scary creatures, but there is only one monster that can not only scare me, but also make me remember and impress me after watching this film. The monsters like aliens, iron warriors and aliens are not as disgusting and frightening as the monsters that splash everywhere and can grow heads anywhere in this film. In the age of underdeveloped special effects, it’s great to imagine and make such disgusting things! Let me admire the producers of this film.

Finally, let’s talk about the excellent snow scene of the film. Before reading the materials, I thought this film was really shot in the real snow. Only after reading the materials did I know that they were filmed in the studio. It can be seen how realistic the scene setting of this film is! I can’t imagine that such a real snow scene and ice and snow were not photographed in the north or south pole. Is the fake scene of Hollywood in the 1980s so realistic? In any case, there are few films with polar background in the world, let alone a science fiction horror film? The real fake scene is also the uniqueness of this film.

The only actor familiar with this film is the hero Kurt Russell. He looks familiar, but not because of how red he is, but because his face can be seen in many mediocre films. However, what impressed me most was his starring role in soldier man, in which he was very tough. Back to this film, Kurt Russell’s performance in this film is regular. After all, this is a horror film and does not need superb acting skills. Besides, he also has a beard and thick clothes, which affect his performance. As for other actors, they didn’t perform very well, and they didn’t know them, let alone.

Besides, it’s pathetic that there is no woman in the whole film. Dry films without women seem monotonous. At least there should be several supporting roles!

Generally speaking, this film is a classic science fiction horror film. It not only deeply discusses the importance of “trust”, but also has a good plot and excellent special effects. How can you not like such a movie?
