WWF wrestler “Rowdy” Roddy Piper plays John Nada, a homeless, unemployed construction worker who discovers a pair of sunglasses that when worn, suddenly reveal a world run by capitalist, yuppie aliens intent on keeping the human race sedate and brainwashed with subliminal messages fed through advertising and the media. Luckily for us all Nada is a man of action and so begins the fight-back (including perhaps the longest fistfight in cinema’s history) to save humankind.

Amazing Movie

The movie is great and is soon becoming a boardgame. I don't want to spoil the plot but it is great. The 4K quality is nice but not necessary, however the steelbook is well designed and fits in with the style of the movie.

They Live

One of Carpenters ignored movie's . But it's more relevant today then when it was first filmed . All the stops have been pulled out for this release . The picture quality is amazing for a movie of this age . The day time shots are crystal clear . Very good use of HDR . There is grain , but remember this was shot on 35mm film . And it's only a fine dusting and very overpowering , ( Ghostbusters) The DTS sound is busy and we'll balanced . All in all a must purchase for fans of John Carpenter . Can't wait for Escape From New York .
