The Shawshank Redemption Film Vault Unboxing

Widely – and fairly – considered one of the greatest films of all time, Frank Darabont’s The Shawshank Redemption needs no real introduction, so I’ll get right to the point. A gorgeous, definitive new 4K UHD limited edition is available now as part of The Film Vault’s second wave, and you should absolutely have it on your shelf.

Get busy buyin’ (this bloody lovely release), or get busy dyin’.

Here’s a look.


Few movies capture the triumph of the human spirit as memorably as this. Red (Morgan Freeman), a lifer who “knows how to get things” inside the bleak walls of Shawshank State Prison, finds himself drawn to new inmate Andy (Tim Robbins), a quiet banker with an indomitable will. As Andy brings hope and change to the entire prison, he turns out to be full of surprises – and the best comes last, leading to one of the most satisfying finales in movie history.

Alex Moss Editor

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email:
