They Live is a 1988 American science fiction action horror film[b] written and directed by John Carpenter, based on the 1963 short story "Eight O'Clock in the Morning" by Ray Nelson. Starring Roddy Piper, Keith David, and Meg Foster, the film follows an unnamed drifter[c] who discovers through special sunglasses that the ruling class are aliens concealing their appearance and manipulating people to tát consume, breed, and conform to tát the status quo via subliminal messages in mass truyền thông media.

Having acquired the film rights to tát the Nelson-penned short story prior to tát the production of They Live, Carpenter used the story as the basis for the screenplay's structure, which he wrote under the pseudonym "Frank Armitage". Carpenter has stated that the themes of They Live stemmed from his dissatisfaction with the economic policies of then-U.S. President Ronald Reagan, as well as what Carpenter saw as increasing commercialization in both popular culture and politics.[8]

They Live was a minor success upon release, debuting at #1 at the North American box office. It initially received negative reviews from critics, who lambasted its social commentary, writing, and acting; however, it later gained a cult following and experienced a significantly more favorable critical reception. It is now regarded by many as one of Carpenter's best films.[9][2] The film has also entered the pop culture lexicon, notably having a lasting effect on street art (particularly that of Shepard Fairey).

Plot[edit]

A homeless drifter—credited as "Nada"—comes to tát Los Angeles in tìm kiếm of a job. While out on the street, he sees a street preacher warning that "they" have recruited the rich and powerful to tát control humanity. Nada finds employment at a construction site and is befriended by coworker Frank, who invites him to tát live in a shanty town soup kitchen led by a man named Gilbert.

That night, a hacker takes over television broadcasts, claiming that scientists have discovered signals that are enslaving the population and keeping them in a dream-like state, and that the only way to tát stop it is to tát shut off the signal at its source. Those watching the broadcast complain of headaches. Nada secretly follows Gilbert and the preacher into a nearby church and discovers them meeting with a group that includes the hacker. He sees scientific equipment and cardboard boxes inside. Nada is discovered by the blind preacher and escapes.

The shantytown and church are both destroyed in a police raid in the same night, and the hacker and preacher are beaten by riot police. The following day, Nada retrieves one of the boxes from the church and takes a pair of sunglasses from it, hiding the rest in a trash can. Nada discovers that the sunglasses make the world appear monochrome, but also reveal subliminal messages in the truyền thông media to tát consume, reproduce, and conform. The glasses also reveal that many people are actually aliens with skull-like faces.

When Nada mocks an alien woman at a supermarket, she alerts other aliens via a wristwatch-like device. Nada leaves but is confronted by two alien police officers. He kills them and steals their weapons. Nada enters a ngân hàng, where he sees that several of the employees and customers are aliens. He kills several aliens with a shotgun and escapes by taking Cable 54 employee Holly Thompson hostage. At Holly's trang chủ, Nada tries to tát get her to tát try on the glasses, but she knocks him out of the window and down a hill and calls the police.

The next day, Nada returns to tát the alleyway and retrieves the sunglasses from a garbage truck before Frank meets Nada to tát give him his paycheck. Frank, believing Nada is attempting to tát murder him, resists Nada's attempts to tát put the glasses on him, and the two get into a long and violent brawl. After Frank reluctantly lets Nada put the glasses on him, he sees the aliens for himself and goes into hiding with Nada.

Frank and Nada run rẩy into Gilbert, who leads them to tát a meeting of the anti-alien movement. At the meeting, they are given liên hệ lenses to tát replace the sunglasses, and learn that the aliens are using global warming to tát make Earth more lượt thích their own planet, and are depleting the Earth's resources for their own gain. They also learn that the aliens have been bribing humans to tát become collaborators, promoting them to tát positions of power. Holly arrives at the meeting, apologizing to tát Nada. The meeting is raided by police and the vast majority of those present are killed, with the survivors (including Frank, Nada, and Holly) scattering. Nada and Frank are cornered in an alley, but they accidentally activate an alien wristwatch, opening a portal through which they escape.

The portal takes them to tát the aliens' spaceport, where they discover a meeting of aliens and human collaborators celebrating the elimination of the "terrorists". They are approached by a former drifter they briefly met in the shantytown, now a collaborator, who gives them a tour of the facility. He leads them to tát the basement of Cable 54, the source of the signal, which is protected by armed guards. Nada and Frank find Holly and fight their way to tát the transmitter on top of the roof, but Holly kills Frank, revealing that Holly too is a human collaborator. Nada kills Holly and destroys the transmitter, but is fatally wounded by a group of aliens in a helicopter. Nada gives the aliens the middle finger as he bleeds out.

With the transmitter destroyed, humans all over the world are miễn phí from their dream-like state and discover the aliens hiding amongst them.

Themes[edit]

Carpenter has said that the film's political commentary derives from his dissatisfaction with then–U.S. President Ronald Reagan's economic policies—also known as Reaganomics—and what Carpenter viewed as increasing commercialization in both the popular culture and politics of the era.[8]

Upon the film's release, Carpenter remarked, "The picture's premise is that the 'Reagan Revolution' is run rẩy by aliens from another galaxy. Free enterprisers from outer space have taken over the world, and are exploiting Earth as if it's a third world planet. As soon as they exhaust all our resources, they'll move on to tát another world... I began watching TV again. I quickly realized that everything we see is designed to tát sell us something. ... It's all about wanting us to tát buy something. The only thing they want to tát vì thế is take our money." To this kết thúc, Carpenter thought of sunglasses as being the tool to tát seeing the truth, which "is seen in Đen and white. It's as if the aliens have colonized us. That means, of course, that Ted Turner is really a monster from outer space."[d] The director commented on the alien threat in an interview: "They want to tát own all our businesses. A Universal executive asked mạ, 'Where's the threat in that? We all sell out every day.' I ended up using that line in the film." The aliens were deliberately made to tát look lượt thích ghouls, according to tát Carpenter, who said "The creatures are corrupting us, sánh they, themselves, are corruptions of human beings."[10]

In 2017, in response to tát neo-Nazi interpretations of the film's themes, Carpenter further clarified that the film "is about yuppies and unrestrained capitalism" and "has nothing to tát vì thế with Jewish control of the world".[e]

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

The idea for They Live came from a short story called "Eight O'Clock in the Morning"[17] by Ray Nelson, originally published in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction in November 1963, involving a protagonist, George Nada, and an alien invasion in the tradition of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, which Nelson, along with artist Bill Wray, adapted into a story called "Nada" published in the Alien Encounters comics anthology in April 1986.[10] John Carpenter describes Nelson's story as "... a D.O.A.-type of story, in which a man is put in a trance by a stage hypnotist. When he awakens, he realizes that the entire human race has been hypnotized, and that alien creatures are controlling humanity. He has only until eight o'clock in the morning to tát solve the problem."[10] Carpenter acquired the film rights to tát both the comic book and short story and wrote the screenplay, using Nelson's story as a basis for the film's structure.

Because the screenplay was the product of sánh many sources—a short story, a comic book, and input from cast and crew—Carpenter decided to tát use the pseudonym "Frank Armitage", an allusion to tát one of the filmmaker's favorite writers, H. P.. Lovecraft (Henry Armitage is a character in Lovecraft's The Dunwich Horror).[10] Carpenter has always felt a close kinship with Lovecraft's worldview, and according to tát the director "Lovecraft wrote about the hidden world, the 'world underneath'. His stories were about gods who are repressed, who were once on Earth and are now coming back. The world underneath has a great giảm giá to tát vì thế with They Live."[10]

Casting[edit]

For the role of Nada, the filmmaker cast professional wrestler Roddy Piper, whom he had met at WrestleMania III earlier in 1987. For Carpenter, it was an easy choice: "Unlike most Hollywood actors, Roddy has life written all over him."[10] Carpenter was impressed with Keith David's performance in The Thing and needed someone "who wouldn't be a traditional sidekick but could hold his own."[10] To this kết thúc, Carpenter wrote the role of Frank specifically for David.

Filming[edit]

They Live was shot in eight weeks during March and April 1988, principally on location in downtown Los Angeles, with a budget only slightly greater than vãn $3 million.[10] One of the highlights of the film is a five-and-a-half-minute alley fight between Nada and Frank over a pair of the special sunglasses. Carpenter recalls that the fight took three weeks to tát rehearse: "It was an incredibly brutal and funny fight, along the lines of the slugfest between John Wayne and Victor McLaglen in The Quiet Man."[10]

Music[edit]

Release[edit]

They Live was theatrically released in North America on November 4, 1988, and debuted at #1 at the box office, grossing $4.8 million during its opening weekend.[1][19] The film spent two weeks in the top ten.[20] The film's original release date, advertised in promotional material as October 21, 1988, had been pushed back two weeks to tát avoid direct competition with Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers.

Reception[edit]

In his review for the Chicago Reader, Jonathan Rosenbaum wrote, "Carpenter's wit and storytelling craft make this fun and watchable, although the script takes a number of unfortunate shortcuts, and the possibilities inherent in the movie's central concept are explored only cursorily."[21] Jay Carr, writing for The Boston Globe, said "[o]nce Carpenter delivers his throwback-to-the-'50s visuals, complete with plump little B-movie flying saucers, and makes his point that the rich are fascist fiends, They Live starts running low on imagination and inventiveness", but felt that "as sci-fi horror comedy, They Live, with its wake-up đường dây nóng to tát the world, is in a class with Terminator and RoboCop, even though its hero doesn't sport bionic biceps".[6]

In her review for The Thủ đô New York Times, Janet Maslin wrote, "Since Mr. Carpenter seems to tát be trying to tát make a real point here, the flatness of They Live is doubly disappointing. So is its crazy inconsistency, since the film stops trying to tát abide even by its own game plan after a while."[22] Richard Harrington wrote in The Washington Post, "it's just John Carpenter as usual, trying to tát dig deep with a toy shovel. The plot for They Live is full of Đen holes, the acting is wretched, the effects are second-rate. In fact, the whole thing is sánh preposterous it makes V look lượt thích Masterpiece Theatre."[23] Rick Groen, in The Globe and Mail, wrote, "the movie never gets beyond the pop Orwell premise. The social commentary wipes clean with a dry towelette – it's not intrusive and not pedantic, just lighter-than-air."[24]

On the review aggregator trang web Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 86% based on 73 reviews, and an average rating of 7.30/10. The website's critical consensus reads: "A politically subversive blend of horror and sci fi, They Live is an underrated genre film from John Carpenter."[7] Metacritic gives the film a weighted average rating of 55 out of 100 based on 22 reviews, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[25]

The 2012 documentary film The Pervert's Guide to tát Ideology, presented by the Slovene philosopher and psychoanalyst Slavoj Žižek, begins with an analysis of They Live. Žižek uses the film's concept of wearing special sunglasses that reveal truth to tát explain his definition of ideology. Žižek states:

They Live is definitely one of the forgotten masterpieces of the Hollywood Left. … The sunglasses function lượt thích a critique of ideology. They allow you to tát see the real message beneath all the propaganda, glitz, posters and sánh on. … When you put the sunglasses on, you see the dictatorship in democracy, the invisible order which sustains your apparent freedom.[26]

Legacy[edit]

They Live was ranked #18 on Entertainment Weekly magazine's "The Cult 25: The Essential Left-Field Movie Hits Since '83" list in 2008.[27]

Shepard Fairey credits the film as a major source of inspiration, sharing a similar logo to tát his "Andre the Giant Has a Posse" chiến dịch. "They Live was…the basis for my use of the word 'obey'," Fairey said. "The movie has a very strong message about the power of commercialism and the way that people are manipulated by advertising."[30]

Novelist Jonathan Lethem called They Live one of his "favorite movies of the eighties, hands down". He said, "It's a great movie...Look at what it does to tát people, look at how it emboldens and provokes...It's disturbing and ridiculous and outrageous and uncomfortable, but I think it's the kind of great movie that doesn't really need defense, it just needs to tát be given the air." Lethem wrote a book-length homage to tát the movie for the Soft Skull Press Deep Focus series.[31]

The 2013 video clip game Saints Row IV features an extended parody of They Live, with Roddy Piper and Keith David voicing fictionalized versions of themselves in a recreation of the fight scene between Nada and Armitage.[32]

David Banner and 9th Wonder also used the film as the influence behind their 2010 video clip for "Slow Down".[34]
