A Californian college town is devastated after a gang of thugs rapes and murders a young woman. Her brother Kevin, dissatisfied with the small-town justice system, recruits his frat brothers to go full vigilante.

ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK
1981, Rialto Pictures, 99 min, USA, Dir: John Carpenter

Kurt Russell delivers one of cinema’s most legendary performances as ornery, one-eyed Snake Plissken, a sentenced-to-die anti-hero sent into a maximum-security prison in a Manhattan of the future to rescue U.S. President Donald Pleasence from villain Isaac Hayes. A highly entertaining tall tale with influences ranging from comic books to apocalyptic sci-fi to spaghetti Westerns! With Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, Harry Dean Stanton and Adrienne Barbeau.


THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE
1972, 20th Century Fox, 117 min, USA, Dir: Ronald Neame

Director Ronald Neame and producer Irwin Allen’s literally titanic disaster epic features a boatload of acting talent - Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Red Buttons, Carol Lynley, Jack Albertson, Roddy McDowall, Stella Stevens and more - all doing their best to survive the hellish inferno of capsized ocean liner the S.S. Poseidon. Special kudos to Shelley Winters for her unforgettably gutsy performance, and to special effects expert L.B. Abbott and stunt coordinator Paul Stader for some of the most spectacular disaster scenes in movie history, including the famous upside-down ballroom.
