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. 

"Rowdy" Roddy Piper stars in this John Carpenter classic as a drifter who finds a pair of glasses that allow him to see the world for what it truly is; completely overrun by an invading alien race. Surrounded by billboards and advertisements commanding him to "OBEY" , our hero does anything but. He came here to chew bubble gum and kick some ass, and he's all out of bubble gum.
