They Live: Directed by John Carpenter. With Roddy Piper, Keith David, Meg Foster, George ‘Buck’ Flower. 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.
Released in 1988 and directed by one of 80s/90s horror’s greatest directors, starring a great wrestler and one of the greats voice over actors of our time. There’s a slow moving slug fest that goes on for nearly 5 minutes, it really feels like a “real” fight, and man it’s exhausting to watch. I truly didn’t expect the nudity at the end of the film, and it’s always a surprise when it pops up, but I guess that’s what the 80’s gave us.
