ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK

Kurt Russell’s first team-up with John Carpenter is arguably his best. The government enlists hardened criminal skull-basher, Snake Plissken, to travel to the blood-thirsty maximum security prison island known as “Manhattan,” where he has has less than 24 hours to save the President of the United States and get back...or he’s a dead man. With a supporting cast of all-around bad asses including Harry Dean Stanton, Lee Van Cleef, Adrienne Barbeau, Ernest Borgnine, and Isaac Hayes, this movie is guaranteed to set your eyeballs on fire.
