A thrilling landmark film that jolts along at a breakneck pace, Escape From New York leapt to cult status with high-octane action, edge-of-your-seat suspense and the mind-blowing vision of lone warrior Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) battling his way out of a post-apocalyptic Manhattan!

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!

Why We Love It

“Highly recommended” – DVD Talk

“John Carpenter’s ‘80s action classic gets the Blu-ray treatment it deserves from Scream Factory. The disc is loaded with special features like a behind-the-scenes look at the visual effects that turn Manhattan into a prison.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Scream’s new Blu-ray Collector’s Edition delivers the goods, essentially making all previous Blu-ray and DVD versions obsolete. It’s a worthy addition to the expanding library of John Carpenter special editions on disc.” – The Digital Bits

“This is a hefty package from Scream Factory with some updated extras, great cover art (or the original art if you’re a purist) that looks fantastic. It’s Escape From New York. It’s John Carpenter. It’s Kurt Russell. It’s Scream Factory. When you put these things together you get something special.” –

“The two-disc “Collector’s Edition” truly lives up to its name with brand new high definition scans of the inter-positive, struck from the original negative for a beautiful 1080p experience.” –
