The “baby man” is called Slag and he’s played by professional wrestler Ox Baker. Escape From New York is pretty much the biggest movie he’s ever appeared in. Back in the day however he was fairly well known in wrestling circles.

Escape from LA is one of THE worst sequels EVER.

Yeah, the only good part is the scene with Bruce Campbell as that demented plastic surgeon.

In contrast to the original, as a direct theatrical sequel, it is indeed one of the greatest drops in quality ever.

You should watch Starman. A 1984 movie by John Carpenter starring Jeff Bridges; and the only John Carpenter movie to receive and Academy Award nomination for anything due to Bridges earning a Best Actor nod.

Jeff Bridges performance in Starman is one of the finest pieces of acting I’ve ever seen.

Snake Plissken is undoubtedly one of the coolest characters in cinema.

Such a great ensemble cast of classic character actors:
Isaac Hayes:The Duke / Ernest Borgnine: Cabbie
Maggie: Adrian Barbeau / Harry Dean Stanton: The Brain
Lee Van Clef: Colonel / Donald Pleasence: President

Love this movie, you must see the sequel Escape From LA as a cautionary tale of how a remake/sequel with like 20X the budget can fail so hard.

Like usual, I’ve never seen this movie either. And knowing how my comments on Tamara’s Never Seen are going, I’ll probably be leaving pretty much the same comment next time. LOL. Also, I totally support that sequel idea that you had.
