Abstract:

The Thing: In the winter of 1982, a 12-man research team, at a remote Antarctic research station, discovers an alien buried in the snow for over 100,000 years. Soon unfrozen, the form-changing alien wreaks havoc, creates terror and takes on the appearance of those it kills.

Prince of darkness: A group of graduate students and scientists uncover an ancient canister and inadvertently unleash a strange liquid. As the substance begins to turn their co-workers into zombies, the remaining members realize they have released Satan himself.

They live: Aliens are gaining control of the earth by masquerading as humans and lulling the public into submission. Humanity's last chance lies with a lone drifter who stumbles upon a unique pair of sunglasses that reveal the terrifying and deadly truth.

Village of the damned: After an unseen force invades a quiet coastal town, ten women mysteriously find themselves pregnant. A local physician and a government scientist join forces when the women simultaneously give birth ... and the reign of terror begins.
