They influence our decisions without us knowing it. They numb our senses without us feeling it. They control our lives without us realizing it. They live.Horror master John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) directs this heart-pounding thriller. Aliens are systematically gaining control of the earth by masquerading as humans and lulling the public into submission. Humanity's last chance lies with a lone drifter who stumbles upon a harrowing discovery - a unique pair of sunglasses that reveal the terrifying and deadly truth.

I believe it be a relevant movie to the current state of affairs, too.
but I can't knock any stars off for that.
Rowdy Roddy Piper is the man,
and shows it here!
When he passed a couple years ago I thought about how great it would have been to have met him.
RIP Mr Piper.
Back to the movie,
great story line, great pretense,
it's probably a love it or hate it thing since there is a little cheesyness to it,
but even that is to be loved and delighted in all its 1980's goodness!
Back story and feel is in a "1984" dystopian fashion that still plays out in 2017 (maybe even more so than it did in 1988).
Character drama is good at times, a bit cardboard at others,
fight scenes are similar,
there's some very good stuff here and some places to criticize for anyone who doesn't like the movie.
As someone who really likes this film I loved and enjoyed every bit of it, warts and all.
Steelbook edition is very good as well,
unfortunately it's "not eligible" for disc to digital scanning under programs like Vudu.
Also there's maybe a dozen F-bombs,
and one upper body nude shot towards the end of the movie,
so keep that in mind for teens
Great movie, recommended.
Don't read the jacket notes.
Have your friends over and don't tell them what it is.
Don't let anyone spoil it, if they recognize it.
It is very accurate satire, and is still very culturally relevant.
