A new video highlights the continuing relevance of Carpenter's cult sci-fi actioner.

Over two million Americans are currently living behind bars, representing 25% of the world's prison population. That's more than the number of people who live on the island of Manhattan, the setting for John Carpenter's 1981 sci-fi action flick Escape from New York.
