in this flick he finds these glasses that basically let him see aliens.. they are all among us and there are signs everywhere that basically help them
run the human society..crazy concept.. dont a lot of u believe that this is actually goin on.. some of u actually think u r aliens..
I remember that movie very well, was a very interesting concept. If I recall there were certain glasses that one could wear that would allow you to
see these imposter citizens, who were really aliens walking around pretending to be humans and running the show. They also had unseen subliminal
messages written on signs, running on TV brainwashing people. Made me sort of paranoid and I always wondered how real of a possibility it could have

know about it being aliens
As a matter of fact its on Cinemax right now. I think John Carpenter did a great job with it. Its going to be a cult classic. I rank it up there with
'The Thing' another of his great films. He definitely had imagination.
What's funny is that the acting in the movie really isn't that great. There's a lot of gaps in the story, like how did the man that gave him the
