John Carpenter’s classic Escape from New York has been stunningly restored in 4K. The year is 1997 and in a police state future the island of Manhattan has been turned into a maximum security prison. The rules are simple: once you’re in, you don’t come out. But when the President of the United States (Donald Pleasance) crash lands an escape pod into the centre of the city after fleeing a hijacked plane, a ruthless prison warden (Lee Van Cleef) bribes ex-soldier and criminal Snake Plisskin into entering the hazardous Manhattan and rescuing the distraught president from the twisted world of New York and from the demented clutches of its new ruler The Duke (Isaac Hayes) in John Carpenter’s cyber-punk, action, suspense spectacular.
The 2018 restoration of ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK was made from the 35mm original camera negative. A full 4K 16bit workflow was applied to create a 4K DCP, UHD version and a new HD version which were produced with the same high technological standards as today's biggest international film releases.
The restoration and new UHD version was colour graded and approved in Los Angeles by the Cinematographer, Dean Cundey.

Extras include:

  • Purgatory: Entering John Carpenter’s ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK: A brand retrospective documentary produced by Ballyhoo Motion Pictures and featuring interviews with writer Nick Castle, cinematographer Dean Cundey, composer Alan Howarth, production designer Joe Alves, special visual effects artist/model maker Gene Rizzardi, production assistant David De Coteau, photographer Kim Gottleib-Walker, Carpenter biographer John Muir, visual effects historian Justin Humphreys, and music historian Daniel Schweiger.
