They Live (1988)
Jesus turn the subtitles off here you idiot!☝
"They Live is a 1988 science fiction/horror film directed by John Carpenter, who also wrote the screenplay under the pseudonym Frank Armitage. The film is based on Ray Nelson's 1963 short story "Eight O'Clock in the Morning".
Part science fiction horror and part dark comedy, the film echoed contemporary fears of a declining economy, within a culture of greed and conspicuous consumption common among Americans in the 1980s. In They Live, the ruling class within the moneyed elite are in fact aliens managing human social affairs through the use of a signal on top of the TV broadcast that is concealing their appearance and subliminal messages in mass media."
Starring "Rowdy" Roddy Piper. True fans of old school WWF will enjoy the fight choreography.
