BK Horror Club + Throne Watches Present: They Live
Politics, horror, and sci-fi collide in this cult classic
Throne Watches are a watch, watch-strap, and leather goods manufacturer in Brooklyn. BK Horror Club are a bunch interested in one thing: horror flicks. The unlikely pairing have teamed forces to deliver to the public a monthly horror movie screening. BK will be picking the flicks while Throne Watches will be providing a place to kickback and watch them. John Carpenter's They Live was a horror film with a political slant that's message resonates as loudly as ever some 27 years after its release. A homeless drifter uncovers the reason for the destructive inequality gap between rich and poor: aliens have infiltrated American society and have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo and continuing to quash the lower classes. With the help of a special pair of sunglasses that see straight through alien propaganda, the drifter tries to end the oppression. They Live is not your typical horror flick, and it's all the better for it. "They Live is definitely one of the forgotten masterpieces of the Hollywood Left." – Slavoj Žižek, The Pervert's Guide To Ideology "They Live is the looniest movie of the season and also one of the most engaging." – Chicago Tribune Rating: R. Runtime: 1 hour 37 minutes. Popcorn and beer will be available at each screening. As seating is first-come-first-serve, guests are encouraged to bring their own blanket, cushion or lawn chair so that they can enjoy the movie more comfortably.
"A fantastically subversive film, a nifty little confection pitting us vs them, the haves vs the have-nots."
