THEY LIVE d. John Carpenter, 1988 presented by Tufnell Park Film Club at The Lord Palmerston (02 AUG 20:00).

“Nada (Roddy Piper), a wanderer without meaning in his life, discovers a pair of sunglasses capable of showing the world the way it truly is. As he walks the streets of Los Angeles, Nada notices that both the media and the government are comprised of subliminal messages meant to keep the population subdued, and that most of the social elite are skull-faced aliens bent on world domination. With this shocking discovery, Nada fights to free humanity from the mind-controlling aliens. John Carpenter’s They Live is a thoroughly enjoyable B-movie romp, within which is smuggled a class A satirical conceit.” (TPFC)
