NO ESCAPE Coming from Unearthed Films October 11th, 2022!


The Year is 2022. In the Prison of the Future, Escape is Impossible and Survival Isn't Much Easier. From the makers of "Aliens" and "The Terminator"... 

We are all saddened at the sudden loss of Ray Liotta. His unforgettable performances will remain in the collective minds and hearts of us all. We are happy to be able to release one of his underrated classics with the sci-fi adventure NO ESCAPE.

We thank Ray Liotta for the entertainment and for being a part of our lives. Rest in Peace.
-Stephen Biro, Owner and CEO, Unearthed Films

The Year is 2022. John Robbins (Ray Liotta), a former Marine Captain, has been sentenced for assassinating his commanding officer and is banished to a secret and remote prison island run by The Warden (Michael Lerner). In this prison of the future, inhabited by society's most violent and feared criminals, Robbins is left to the mercy of the elements and his fellow man.

He finds the island divided into two camps: The Outsiders, led by the brutal and bloodthirsty Marek (Stuart Wilson); and The Insiders, led by the strong-willed, benevolent Father (Lance Henriksen) and his followers Hankins (Ernie Hudson) and Casey (Kevin Dillon). Robbins doesn't care to join either - his one aim is to break free of an island from which there is no escape. To aid him, he steals a powerful and destructive weapon from The Outsiders, sparking off a major war between the two encampments. Now bloody battle and the brutality of hand-to-hand combat will take many lives before Robbins can think of freedom again. Trapped on an island where nature can be as deadly as man, there is only one thought which keeps Robbins alive... escape...escape...escape.
"There are huge chunks of "Mad Max," "The Lord of the Flies," "Zardoz" and "The Prisoner" and stray parts from every old pirate movie, muscle-pic, biblical epic and comic book you can think of." - THE WASHINGTON POST

"What this all boils down to is that "No Escape" is a lot of fun for fans of action movies..." - THE MOVIE SCENE
"NO ESCAPE... keeps the action coming pretty regularly but still gives us snippets of character development here and there to make the people in the picture interesting..." - ROCK SHOCK POP

"A throwback to the energetic sci-fi films of yesteryear. Frantic and Fun! Caffeinated..." - THE BRAG

"This 90s action flick has a lot to offer, with Ray Liotta as our action hero, an island prison filled with set piece potential, a dystopian atmosphere, and a bad guy that devours scenes like he is always famished." - MARC FUSION

"If you haven’t seen No Escape then strap yourself in for a good lead, a great villain, and an amazing supporting cast. Stuart Wilson deserves all the awards in all of the shows."
