John Ary here with a fun conversation between the cast of They Live and a room full of horror fans at Texas Frightmare Weekend. Rowdy Roddy Piper, Keith David and Meg Foster reunited to discuss John Carpeneter's classic film.
Here are some of the highlights from their one-hour discussion, including Vince McMahon's reaction to Piper leaving the WWF to shoot the movie and of course how one of the most famous brawls in film history was choreographed and performed.
A few other tidbits from the discussion that didn't make their way into this video include Hot Rod's famous "I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubble gum" line. It was ad-libbed in one take just before lunch. Also, his lawyer is Jeff Cohen, better known to kids of the 80's as Chunk from The Goonies.
Kudos to Rue Morgue’s Dave Alexander for his excellent moderation of the panel.
On a related note, the Mason Park Alamo Drafthouse in Houston will be holding a special 35mm screening of They Live on Sunday, May 27. Here's the link.
