Scream Factory to Release 'Escape from New York' Collector Edition Blu-ray

John Carpenter‘s Escape from New York (1981) brings back found memories and I am pleased to say that Scream Factory will release a special collectors edition of Escape from New York. Paul Shipper did a fantastic job with the Blu-ray artwork and really hit that 80’s feel. Look for the Blu-ray release this upcoming April 21, 2015. Are you ready to watch Escape from New York (1981) with stars including Kurt Russell, Lee Van Cleef and Ernest Borgnine?

In a world ravaged by crime, the entire island of Manhattan has been converted into a walled prison where brutal prisoners roam. But when the US president (Donald Pleasence) crash-lands inside, only one man can bring him back: notorious outlaw and former Special Forces war hero Snake Plissken (Russell). But time is short. In 24 hours, an explosive device implanted in his neck will end Snake’s mission - and his life - unless he succeeds!
