What movie was that...?

They Live

directed by John Carpenter

John Carpenter came here to do two things: chew bubble gum and kick cinematic ass. And guess what, he’s all out of bubble gum. In order to make good on his vow, Carpenter masterminded the glorious B flick They Live, starring wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper (of Hell Comes to Frog Town Fame) and rocking one of the most ridiculously entertaining plots in late night movie history. Piper plays Nada, who discovers a pair of sunglasses that allow him to see people for their true selves, aliens. Yep, that’s the premise, and that’s all you need to know. If you have a soft spot in your heart for the fantastic treasures culled from the B film underworld, jewels like Cherry 2000, Hell Comes to Frogtown and Night of the Lupus, you will not be disappointed with Carpenter’s They Live.
