They Live (1988)

| |

We just played They Live as part of a cult film series at the theatre I work at and I'm embarrassed that it hasn't previously been posted as a NA Films Monday Movie.  It's cheesy.  It's full of horrific 1980's synthesizer music.  It stars a wrestler who is only capable of fight sequences and one liners.  It's got aliens.  It has a poorly choreographed fight sequence that last about 3 minutes too long.  It's got a very young Keith David.  It is awesome!

The Wikipedia description and the short trailer below should sell any No Agenda fan who has not seen this film:
"The film follows a nameless drifter referred to as "Nada", who discovers the ruling class within the moneyed elite are in fact aliens managing human social affairs through the use of a signal on top of the TV broadcast, concealing their appearance and subliminal messages in mass media."
