Is your copy of John Carpenter’s The Thing a little lonely on your Blu-Ray shelf? Now Carpenter’s other 80s scifi classic can join it as Shout! Factory has officially revealed a big special edition of They Live for a Blu-Ray release in November. Here are the details directly from Shout! Factory’s website:
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 in which 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 reveals the terrifying and deadly truth.
Production now underway for extensive and insightful bonus features that include all-new interviews, an audio commentary and archival material. We will announce in-depth bonus features and additional news in the next couple months.
If you’ve never seen They Live, you’ve been deprived of one of the great genre classics. The old Image-released DVD has been out of print for nearly a decade, although I have seen it in bargain bins at Best Buy rarely. This new Blu-Ray is a welcome upgrade for one of the craziest movies to come out of the 80s.
