We've been covering a lot of Shout! Factory's recent Scream Factory label releases lately, but of all of them, I think I've been anticipating John Carpenter's They Live the most. One of the Halloween director's trio of end of the world movies (along with Prince of Darkness and In The Mouth of Madness), it's also his second funniest.*
The Scream Factory disc is on the way on November 6th (yes, we know the trailer says available now--that's how they get ya), with a whole mess of features not included on the previous, pretty spare DVD released a few years back.
Here's what's on the disc, according to Shout! Factory:
Audio Commentary with Writer/Director John Carpenter and Actor Roddy Piper
Independent Thoughts – An interview with Writer/Director John Carpenter
Man vs. Aliens – An interview with Actor Keith David
Woman of Mystery – An interview with Actress Meg Foster
Watch, Look, Listen: The Sights & Sounds of “They Live” – A look at the visual style, stunts and music from the film with Director of Photography Gary B. Kibbe, Stunt Coordinator Jeff Imada, and Co-Composer Alan Howarth
Original EPK: The Making of “They Live”
Never-Before-Seen Footage from the Commercials created for the film.
