Synopsis:

John Nada (Roddy Piper) is a quiet loner, a drifter who gets work where ever he can find it. While working on a construction site in L.A. and sleeping in a vagrant community at night, John stumbles upon a secret society of alien beings who pose as wealthy and powerful people in human society. John joins a rebel group commited to exposing this conspiricy, and becomes their reluctant leader and the only hope of the human race. Wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper is outstanding as the unassuming hero, playing the role with understated shock at what he uncovers and stubborn courage when he confronts it. Director John Carpenter laces the film with his trademark blend of humour and horror, making aliens that are hideously arrogant, greedy, and easy to hate, while the humans are confused and desperate in their struggle against them. The world looks a little different at the end of THEY LIVE, and one will never look at billboards, money, or sunglasses the same way again. The film contains the longest, and perhaps most realistic, fist fight in film history. Paying homage to INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, the film was based on the short story EIGHT O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING by Ray Nelson.

Awesome movie!!!

o-m-g I LOVE this film, and now I have that tune in my head! A must see movie thanks!

I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum.

Absolutely classic movie. Up there with Robocop in the admittedly fairly narrow category of Sci-fi-Black-Comedy-80s-consumerist-satire. Phew.

Formaldehyde face classic line...

Duke Nukem's version had a better ring to it.

]They Live was released in 1988 while ]Duke Nukem first appeared on PC in 1991. :thumbsup:

You, you're ok. This one, real f***in ugly

Tron & They Live all in one day.. Wow

best fist fight ever in the history of movies.

Surprisingly good movie, but 4.99 is a little over the top. It's been as low as 2.99 before.

Yeah I got it for £2.99 from Play.com but that was the normal one disc edition

The Golden Rule: He who has the gold, makes the rules.

This version doesn't look any different from the previous release... can someone tell me if it has more extras?
