Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THEY LIVE is a sci-fi action thriller in which a man discovers aliens have taken over the planet.

Violence

Scenes include shootings with resultant blood spurts, and an extended fist fight in which one man briefly attempts to gouge the other's eyes.

There is infrequent strong language ('f**k'). In one scene a bare-breasted woman is gently thrusting on a person. Occasional scenes of threat include the protagonist's horror at first discovering aliens around him.
