Ice And Fire By John Carpenter

Decent Essays
Without using dialogue, the director John Carpenter visually sets up a story that moves us from the vastness of space, to the suffocating confines of an Antarctic research station cut off from the rest of the world. By using location, color, and the narrowing of our field of view, he tells us that something bad has come from the universe far beyond, but will soon be very close. Into a cold and hostile world of perpetual white ice and snow, an environment the research station occupants must hold at bay to survive, comes a new, deadly threat. And as the story unfolds, the characters become trapped in an ever-shrinking and terrifying world, where a battle between ice and fire will unfold.
