Scream Factory mounts an ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK (review)

Snake Plissken blasts his way back onto Blu-ray in this Scream Factory special edition.  When Air Force One is hijacked and the President's escape pod crashes in the middle of the Manhattan Island prison, outlaw Snake Plissken is sent in to rescue him and recover a valuable audio tape recording to avert nuclear war.  Kurt Russell, Adrienne Barbeau, Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, Harry Dean Stanton, Tom Atkins, Charles Cyphers, and Isaac Hayes star in John Carpenter's action classic.
