This week, Dr. Diabolic himself Jeremiah Wilkerson and Heather Lynn Henderson join Nick and Chris for a trip to the Big Apple circa 1997 – you know, when the isle of Manhattan was a dystopian prison colony. It’s Carpenter’s cult classic 1981 sci-fi action-thriller Escape from New York. Just keep an eye on those floorboards, word is the Crazies are out tonight. Join us in a few weeks, when we’ll be revisiting the sequel, Escape from L.A., and… we’ll see what happens.
