This month, a team of Arctic explorers discover a mysterious craft frozen in the ice. When they excavate the frozen occupant and thaw him in the base, they unwittingly unleash a horrible monster which had been trapped in the ice for millions of years. Will they be able to stop this terror before it kills them all, or will they all become the next victims of the Thing?
