Just got finished re-watching They Live as part of my Halloween.
It is so scary how that movie predicted so much of what is going on today: union jobs disappearing while investors get raises, families disintegrating, consumerism/gadgetry pushed, bankers being protected,and a small cabal of wealthy elite who blend in with humans but secretly look grotesque underneath and who are out to enslave mankind. They own law enforcement and the media, and put out crap 24/7 to lull the masses into a false complacency. And they have their own human informers who have turned on their own race(!) in return for wealth and power.
Heck, Carpenter even has the resistance movement be based out of Christian church (!), and the church members shown to be the good guys through and through (the Bible quoting blind priest is shown to be a heroic martyr! to truth!).
About the only part that doesn’t jive with reality is that one of the “hidden” messages turns out to be “marry and reproduce.” The message actually should have been “fornicate and abort.”
Carpenter ostensibly made the film to criticize “Reaganomics” but the reality is that it tears modern (((globalism))) a new one.
