THEY LIVE The Facts

The scene where Nada says, "I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubble gum" was ad-libbed by Roddy Piper.

 
The two critics speaking against violence on film criticize director John Carpenter.

The credited writer "Frank Armitage" is a reference to William Gibson's book "Neuromancer."

Screenwriter "Frank Armitage" is actually director John Carpenter.

The fight between Nada Roddy Piper and Frank (Keith David) was only supposed to last 20 seconds, but Piper and David decided to fight it out for real, only faking the punches to the face. Carpenter was so impressed he kept the scene intact.

The communicators that the guards use are the P.K.E. meters from Ghostbusters.
