Popcorn Frights’ Wicked Weekend closes by championing the toughest of the tough in an epic battle of Man vs. Aliens — we’re doing a pure celebration of fisticuffs and machine guns with the 30th anniversary presentation of THEY LIVE, an in-your-face celebration of pain, one-liners, and the longest fist fight as a result of not wanting to wear sunglasses you have ever seen. So come and witness John Carpenter’s genius in full force, backed by a rocking ’80s synth soundtrack and enough subliminal messaging to make you want to consume EVERYTHING.

You see them on the street. You Watch them on TV. You might even vote for one this fall. You think they’re people just like you. You’re wrong. Dead wrong. The late-great heroic maniac, Rowdy Roddy Piper, stars as a homeless drifter who stumbles across a box full of Hyper-advanced sunglasses that provide him with the sight to view skinless spacemen who are subliminally enslaving humans. If you’ve got a thing for WWF wrestlers acting, this movie is for you! If you like balls-out action and explosions, this movie is for you! If you appreciate social commentary and satire, well guess what Mr. Smarty Pants? You have to see this film! We don’t care who you are or what you like, if you are a red-blooded, breathing humanoid, you must vow to see this movie!
