Eight O They Live! Eight O’Clock in the Morning by Ray Nelseon “Eight O’Clock in the Morning” is a short story written by Ray Nelson almost a half century ago.

The film stars Roddy Piper, Keith David, and Meg Foster. It follows an unnamed drifter (referred to as "John Nada" in the film's credits) who discovers the ruling class are in fact aliens concealing their appearance and manipulating people to spend money, breed, and accept the status quo with subliminal messages in mass media. They Live is based on the 1963 short story, "Eight O'Clock in the Morning" by Ray Nelson. At release it was number one in the box office, but sales soon suffered, though the film was nominated for two Saturn Awards. They Live has since become a cult film.
