Kick ass John Carpenter movie starring ROWDY Roddy Piper!!!!
Snatchfaced aliens are tricking humans by using a machine to make them look like us. But Piper (who is never given a name in the movie) is the only one who can see them with his sunglasses. No, really.
Supposed to be, according to Carpenter, an example of blind consumerism and republican economics
They Live is a great fucking movie.
A movie directed by John Carpenter starring Roddy Piper as a drifter who finds a pair of sunglasses allowing him to see aliens and subliminal messages. The movie has been known for having one of the longest fist fights in movie history,it was only supposed to last 20 seconds but Roddy Piper and Keith David kept fighting and Carpenter kept the entire scene.
It was said to have inspired Shepard Fairey's Obey stickers featuring Andre the Giant.
They Live is an attack on consumerist society and capitalism.
"They Live is Hella Sick!"
