This is reality in a science fiction kind of way. Since the 80's it's gotten so much worse. The richest people in the world want to own it all including you. They want you to give up your rights because they have learned that taking your rights never works. They lie and fool you into taking their poisonous vaccines, drinking their fluoridated water, their GMO foods, giving up your right to defend yourself, etc. They keep you distracted with whats considered old technology by comparison to what is being hidden from us. TV's, cellphones, games, facebook,.... sit, watch, play. Do not question that of whats going on around you. Work your little job and pall your bills/ taxes. Tomorrow, do it again. Obey.

Great message behind the movie (if you're not already brainwashed)

Classic and ahead of its time IMO. If a scenario like this happened now it would totally seem plausible but to come up with this back in the day Mr. Carpenter had to know it could happen then as well. Looking through the shades was freaky when you see what it is. Roddy Piper was great in this. Creepy scary story if you think about it.

Wow! Really Good! Who would've thought that such a movie was made in the late 80's... It touches so many subjects and to so many levels of understanding... Really makes you think and makes you wake up about the powers that be... When the time comes, will YOU be ready? Will you be ready to make a commitment? Would you risk it all to save mankind? Or will you cop out in order to make a buck or two at the expense of your fellow man? Everything is about choices, and not making any decision is also a choice you make when you don't lift a finger... And if, not doing a thing, is what you chose... then know that when they'll come for you, there wont be anybody left to defend you coz you would've let them take away everybody (one by one) without lifting a finger to help them... Everything in life is a choice... What will you choose?

Thank you for one of my all time favorite movies Roddy. You were here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and you were all out of bubble gum.

R.I.P. Roddy. Had to watch it again after I heard. I forgot just how low the one fight scene is in this movie.

Celebrating 25 years as a cult classic, John Carpenters They Live has long been heralded by the WAKE UP! movement as more non-fiction than fiction and it's relevance grows day by day as more people choose the red pill. Roddy Piper recently revealed when being interviewed on the Alex Jones Show @infowars.com, that the sunglasses used on this movie were left over from Big Trouble in Little China starring Kurt Russell. A believer or not this movie should be a must on everyone's watch list. Got any bubblegum? 9/10

Great movie, sad thing is it's not Aliens brainwashing us, it is our own species, I said to someone the other day that the new smart tv's have cameras you can't switch off, and he said "Why", I answered, "so they can watch you", and he said "Why do they want to watch us?" I gave up at that point

One of Carpenter's most entertaining films. Had to watch it again to honor the Piper!

I'm not gonna lie - this is a cheesy 80s film, but if you can get past that, there's actually a moral to the story. Big business... greed... sellouts and just plain injustice. I'm not into the whole illuminati stuff but people will sell their souls for fame and fortune. hmmm...
