  1. THEY LIVE
  1. 1988, John Carpenter, USA, 97 min.
  2. With Roddy Piper, Keith David

“One of Carpenter’s best films...funny and daring.”
—Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times

Using the familiar sci-fi trope of “aliens among us,” horror master Carpenter weaves a wild, occasionally goofy, and ultimately biting commentary on class division and greed. A down-on-his-luck construction worker (former wrestler Piper) stumbles across a pair of sunglasses that strip the veneer off reality and reveal that the powers-that-be are aliens, enslaving the population with subliminal messages through advertisements, TV, and the media. 35mm widescreen.
