“I’m giving you a choice: either put on these glasses or start eatin’ that trash can.”

We’ve come here to chew bubblegum and kick pods … and we’re all out of bubblegum. Put on those sunglasses you found in the trash can and join us in the alley for John Carpenter’s 1988 camp classic They Live

It’s a So-Bad-It’s-Good classic with heavy handed social commentary that feels more timely by the day — and it’s got a fight scene that makes us feel better about missing Wrestlemania.

Together, we’ll gush over Keith David, marvel at Rowdy Roddy Piper’s one-liners, and recast the whole movie with the animals from Homeward BoundOBEY!!!
