Ep. 102 — THEY LIVE (1988)


Well, Election Day has come and gone and what better movie to talk about than John Carpenter's incendiary sci-fi camp classic THEY LIVE?!

It also happens to be turning 30 years old this week!

During this episode, we'll discuss the evolution of the film from short story to comic book to the final product that we see on screen today, including all of the political and social commentary that John Carpenter added to it. John was an angry man during Reagan's 1980s!

We're also putting this one up for inclusion in the Psychotronic Hall of Fame, so be sure to cast your vote!
