Break out of dystopia with John Carpenter’s iconic action film starring frequent collaborators Kurt Russell, Adrienne Barbeau, and Donald Pleasence as well as Vidiots icon Harry Dean Stanton and Isaac Hayes. In the future, crime is out of control and New York City’s Manhattan is a maximum security prison. Grabbing a bargaining chip right out of the air, convicts bring down the President’s plane in bad old Gotham. Gruff Snake Plissken, a one-eyed lone warrior new to prison life, is coerced into bringing the President, and his cargo, out of this land of undesirables.
