From legendary writer-director John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Conan The Barbarian) comes the tale of what-could-have-been, had the Cold War gone another way.
When Communist paratroopers descend on a Colorado high school football field, a group of the school's students wages an all-out guerilla war to save their town — and their country. Featuring an all-star cast, including Patrick Swayze (Road House), Charlie Sheen (Platoon), Lea Thompson (Back To The Future), C. Thomas Howell (The Outsiders), Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing), Powers Boothe (Tombstone) and Harry Dean Stanton (Alien), Red Dawn "comes up like thunder" (New York Post)!
Why We Love It
“Red Dawn is an entertaining 80s action/war film, with a unique premise and a good deal of flag-waving patriotism and heart. Whether you consider it a guilty pleasure or not, it’s just a damn fun film. One could certainly wish for a new film scan, but Shout’s done a solid job here with the resources they had available, and the new documentary is worth your time.” – Bill Hunt, The Digital Bits
“…comes with some great bonus content, including an hour-ten retrospective documentary with all new interviews with a few people involved in the production of the film. Another area where the Shout! Select release of the film excels over the MGM release is the audio options. With two tracks to choose from, Red Dawn sounds better on home video than ever before.” – Shawn Savage, The Liberal Dead
“I love Red Dawn. I love the action, the story, and the performances. As you can see here, it looks good and should be a welcomed edition to anyone who wants to see a really awesome movie from a really cool time.” – Chuck Conry, Zombies Don’t Run
