A CLASSIC RE-WATCH - THEY LIVE - "ROWDY" RODDY PIPER - JOHN CARPENTER



A classic film was on my re-watch playlist starring the amazingly masculine "Rowdy" Roddy Piper. A WWF (back before it became WWE) wrestling star who turned his hand to acting and found a perfect vehicle in this sometimes camp, but always entertaining and funny action sci-fi flick.

A twist on the “They Live” amongst us but we don't know yet genre, it has one of the best fight scenes committed to cinema which is gritty and a far cry from the now expected John Wick gun-fu.

John Carpenter directed "They Live" as an allegory for the demanding yuppy capitalist culture prevalent at the time, and the film in context is still very entertaining. 


Here's the trailer.
