Long before Quentin Tarantino got famous for making homage genre films, John Carpenter eked out a living in the 70s and 80s doing nearly the same thing but with much less fanfare. They Live was Carpender’s attempt at a body snatchers-type sci-fi invasion film. It’s an amazing critique of Reagan-era economic policies and has developed quite the cult following over the years. Recently, it has only gained in popularity due to the artist Shepard Fairey more or less adopting the film’s anti-consumerism and anti-authority messages with his “obey” series of art.
Brain-wash horror! This Japanese poster has an awesome design that Shepard fairy would definitely dig!
