Episode 39 – They Live (1988)

We took a sharp left turn and watched John Carpenter‘s 1988 action/sci-fi flick, They Live
The movie’s IMDB description is all you really need by way of introduction:

“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.”

And by “they,” we mean…media savvy aliens with fancy watches that look like Skeletor. It was a wild ride!!

Thanks to slfhlp for providing us some SICK BEATS for our intro and outro.

What are other critics saying? “No offense, but They Live is probably the stupidest film ever to take ideology as its explicit subject. It’s also probably the most fun.” –Jonathan Lethem

Now, a GIF dump.


ACT 3. The back half of the movie is not memorable. No GIFs.
