Horror 101 – Episode 45: They Live

Episode 45: They Live – August 28th, 2015

“I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass…and I’m all out of bubblegum.”

Welcome back to another Horror 101 show and once again, a recent death is steering this ship! With the recent passing of Rowdy Roddy Piper we decided to focus on the crown jewel of his cinematic achievement; A sci-fi/horror film from the catalogue of 80’s John Carpenter called They Live. This film has a strong economic and political tone that is even more relevant today than it was 27 years ago. They Live is an alien invasion film that plays out like a 100 minute Twilight Zone episode. Starring Roddy Piper, Keith David and Meg Foster. Our crew will dissect the importance of the story, the corny one-liners and epic scenes that make They Live a classic Carpenter film. Kick ass and chew bubblegum with us as we honour the passing of a wrestling legend and give the Horror 101 treatment to They Live.
