Description

A drifter discovers a pair of sunglasses that allow him to wake up to the fact that aliens have taken over the Earth.

A homeless drifter discovers a reason for the ever-widening gap between the rich and the poor: a conspiracy by non-human aliens who have infiltrated American society in the guise of wealthy yuppies. With the help of special sunglasses that reveal the aliens' true faces and their subliminal messages (“marry and reproduce,” “submit to authority”), our hero tries to stop the invasion. This satire of Reaganomics and the “greed is good” era also has one of the funniest (and longest) fight scenes in American cinema.

Critic Reviews For They Live

  • " John Carpenter's They Live has cult favorite written all over it, and part of the reason is the way it regenerates the cheap, juicy, surprisingly potent sci-fi of the 1950s. " Jay Carr , Boston Globe
  • " The joke is in the material; the idea itself is funny and daring. And some time soon, They Live suggests, with grim, knowing wink, the joke may be on us. ' – Michael Wilmington , Los Angeles Times
  • " Carpenter's primary objective was to make a tough action flick, which he does; it fits snugly into his filmography's sub­set of urban mayhem movies (alongside ‘Escape from New York,’ ‘Assault on Precinct 13,’ and parts of ‘Big Trouble in Little China’). " – Jason Bailey
