Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
A thrilling landmark film that jolts along at a breakneck pace, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK leapt to cult status with lots of action, edge of your seat suspense and a mind blowing vision of lone warrior Snake Plissken battles his way out of a post apocalyptic Manhattan. Scream Factory is bringing ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK Collector's Edition to Blu-ray in April. Below are the details along with the cover artwork.
– Here’s an exclusive first look at the official newly-commissioned artwork which comes courtesy to us from artist Paul Shipper (HALLOWEEN: The Complete Collection). Snake is centrally focused of course, but we felt that it was important to showcase the incredible ensemble cast who are all vitally important to the film too. Purists can rejoice: The iconic original poster art with the beheaded Statue of Liberty will be on the reverse wrap and we wouldn’t dream of not including it!
– Extras (new & existing) are still in progress and will be announced in full details sometime in Feb. This is a 2-disc Blu-ray set and will exceed the previous DVD special edition.
– Last and not least (and which will be good news to fans hoping this would happen): We have created a brand new 2K High Definition scan of the inter-positive, struck from the original negative.
"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 (Kurt 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!"
