I do have a soft spot for John Carpenter movies, a very soft one. And I find it stunning how utterly re-watchable his films are. “They Live” I probably watched half a dozen times, and it’s still fun, even though it is utterly stupid and silly. And now there is a shot-by-shot analysis. Go for it!

  1. Great stuff. This is one of Carpenter’s more underappreciated films. I’ve alwaya enjoyed it and it’s interesting to read about the film in such depth. Thanks for the link.

  2. I just remember that I had watched it again not so long ago in my desperate effort of a John-Carpenter-Marathon: https://thomas4cinema.wordpress.com/2009/02/22/they-live-john-carpenter-1988/. Feel like watching it again – and all those Carpenter movies that I have not seen since they originally came out. Big Trouble in Little China! I am already shivering with childish anticipation, even though I only remember some dragon thing.
