FlickIt! presents THEY LIVE
They influence our decisions without us knowing it. They numb our senses without us feeling it. They control our lives without us realizing it. THEY LIVE!
A politically subversive blend of horror and sci-fi from the beloved master John Carpenter. They Live stars “Rowdy” Roddy Piper as Nada, a homeless drifter who stumbles upon a harrowing discovery — a unique pair of sunglasses capable of showing the world the way it truly is. As he walks the streets of Los Angeles, Nada notices that both the media and the government are comprised of subliminal messages meant to keep the population subdued, and that most of the social elite are skull-faced aliens bent on world domination. With this shocking discovery, Nada fights to free humanity from the mind-controlling aliens. This satire of Reaganomics and the “greed is good” era also has one of the funniest (and longest) fight scenes in American cinema. (1988, R, 97mins)
