Was the peeling a thing? If not, it might be "They live" - aliens are among us and control our perception, but with special glasses you see the quite hideous humanoid aliens

No it's not They Live. I've seen that 1 several times. This movie I think takes place partially in an underground hospital or laboratory & the creatures had a queen or something like that.

The only thing that comes to mind like that is V, but that was a miniseries.

It being a mini-series is a possibility too, but when I saw it I think it was on HBO or something like that. But this was maybe 20 yrs ago & we don't always remember things from our childhood clearly. And these creatures sort of did look lizard-like underneath their skin. I found it on Putlocker, so I'll check it out.

This probably isn't it, but there's a Doctor Who episode with aliens called the Slitheen that wear human skin suits.

I'm not sure they showed the original Doctor Who series here in the US in the 80s/90s.

It isn't V either, unless it's in the 2nd mini-series or series which I haven't watched yet.

I don't remember the plot exactly, since I watched it a long time ago, but maybe you're thinking of The Arrival? I remember the "aliens disguised as humans" motif.
