They Live

Keep It Cult at Reading Biscuit Factory

9pm, Mon 16th + Fri 20th May

As part of our Keep It Cult season, we're screening John Carpenter's They Live!

Nada, a down-on-his-luck construction worker, discovers a pair of special sunglasses. Wearing them, he is able to see the world as it really is: people being bombarded by media and government with messages like “Stay Asleep”, “No Imagination”, “Submit to Authority”. Even scarier is that he is able to see that some usually normal-looking people are in fact ugly aliens in charge of the massive campaign to keep humans subdued.
