I’m actually very pleased to finally get to review a horrible movie that I love more every time I see it. They Live is 1988 at it’s very best.
There is nothing better then a film that combines 80’s corporate paranoia, big 80’s hair, Roddy Piper and the very worst cheesy dialogue you’ve ever heard.
Combined you have two hours of the finest John Carpenter you are ever liable to see.
This film is also notable for the very best hand to hand fight scene you will ever see. The fight between Keith David and Roddy Piper, ironically the two good guys in the film, comes right out of a Saturday morning WWF wrestling match. And as cheesy as it seems 26 years later, it’s still interesting to watch.
If you have never seen this, please do yourself a favor and add it to your collection. Send the kids to the sitter, make some popcorn, and enjoy!
