Assault on Precinct 13

Assault on Precinct 13

Directed by John Carpenter

A policeman must defend his precinct against a siege by sadistic criminals in John Carpenter’s ultra-violent second feature. Austin Stoker (ABBY) stars as Lt. Bishop, who faces the work day from hell when a vicious gang decides to mount an attack during the police station’s final hours. Unable to fend off the gang on his own, Bishop enlists the help of his dangerous prisoners, including a death row inmate (ERASERHEAD’s Darwin Joston). Critically drubbed upon its release, Carpenter’s action thriller has since become one of the horror icon’s most celebrated films.

A policeman must defend his precinct against a siege by sadistic criminals.

Movie was much better than anticipated. Granted there is some 70 cheese action but that is what made this film so fun to watch. Filmed to where you really care for the protagonists in this one. Good 70's action, must watch!!!

So good! Glad I gave this a rewatch because I forgot how good the soundtrack is. John Carpenter almost never disappoints...Escape From L.A. hardly counts as a Carpenter movie, right?
