Carpenter's cult film is an honest look at the American Dream crumblin

27 February 2015
  • Excerpt: Carpenter's cult gem is an honest look at the American Dream crumbling This gem in Carpenter's late 80's filmography features WWE pro 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper as a drifter who uses a very unique set of sun glasses that reveal the aliens behind the political hypocrisy and the human enslavement which lead to their over-consumerism and poverty. In doing so, Piper is determined to expose the truth thus wipe out the entire alien population with rapid fire!

Put the glasses on! Put 'em on!

  • Excerpt: They live gets off to a slow start but once it picks up (when Piper puts the glasses on) you're in for a good time. I previously owned this on R2 dvd, an ok widescreen transfer with commentary and the making of, but this new edition by Scream factory blows it out of the water! Great to see the actors and Carpenter reflect on the movie (the Keith David interview being the most entertaining) and the movie has never looked better.

They Live

  • Excerpt: Recommended for content, just be prepared for some unsightly oversharpening and DNR, as well as some wonky colors from time to time. Those who have no interest in (or need for) bonus features, will want to get the 2003 Region-1 Universal DVD.

They Live, We Sleep.

  • Excerpt: Classic Carpenter and famed wrestler Roddy Piper team for this late 80's cheese classic They Live. Keith David joins along in the fun as the alien race hidden among them are slowly revealed with the use of sunglasses. Shout Factory brings this classic to new heights with an impressive PQ & AQ presentation. Natural film grain appears but the overall print is very good.

  • Excerpt: I watched John Carpenter's 'They Live' for the first time in a long time (a friend stole my dvd around 6 years ago and I haven't watched the movie since), and I couldn't believe how well this film holds up. I am not a fan of wrestling and I've generally avoided anything to do with it (actual wrestling on television, not great movies made about it!) so I'm a little bit embarrassed to admit that I didn't know Roddy Piper was a wrestler.

Superb Science Fiction Film From John Carpenter

  • Excerpt: I love this movie to be honest and have watched it several times over the years. It sort of sums up the world and constantly has me laughing out loud in places. It has some of cinemas greatest one liners. Its looks and sounds great on this release considering it was an ultra low budget flick. Overall a great release of a little gem of a movie.

Still Fun and Still Relevant

  • Excerpt: I'm a fan of this film. I'm a fan of Carpenter. This was a must-have purchase for me. PQ - The picture is not ideal. Half the time the image is very good with good detail and a nice film- like feel, and the other half of the time it leans more towards a waxy, moderately smeared DNR appearance. Disappointing, but it's not bad enough to call this release a total failure. AQ - No complaints here. Dialogue is front and center, and the sound balance is good.

  • Excerpt: This film is the 'Donnie Darko' of its generation! The themes explored within this movie are still just as relevant today.

  • Excerpt: Movie is awesome. Video has DNR and major edge enhancement. My only hope is that they do not do this with Terrorvision.
