They Live reclassified as a documentary 

THE John Carpenter film They Live is a documentary, it has been confirmed.

The film, about humanity being manipulated to mindlessly breed and consume by a master race of disgusting extraterrestrials, was previously marketed as fiction.

Director John Carpenter said: “Initially we were forced to promoted the film as a fantasy, but the skull-faced creatures who use consumerism to make us into obedient cattle no longer feel the need to hide.

“I think everyone has pretty much worked it out for themselves by this point, or just doesn’t give a shit.”

He added: ”It wasn’t easy getting the aliens to let us film them, but when I told them they’d get to share the screen with Rowdy Roddy Piper they really couldn’t say no.

“I mean, would you? He’s Rowdy Roddy Piper for Pagan Owl God’s sake.”
