It's 1912, and as Scott and Amundsen begin their race across Antarctica, the hapless explorer, Captain Reginald Cranston has accidentally landed on the wrong side of the continent. As Cranston and his motley band set up base camp, a meteor crashes nearby. Deciding to Investigate, they set out towards the crash site - unaware of the danger that awaits not just them, but the whole of planet earth.
What ancient evil lurks inside the crater?
What is the dark secret of the slimy fungus?
And what is the horrifying fate of those who encounter the parasitic space worms?
Inspired by the movies of the 1950's, 'The Thing That Came From Over There’ is a fast-paced rollicking ride, mixing paranoia, suspense and hilariously gruesome deaths.
