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.

This is top 4 Carpenter. It's as pure as the xenomorph.

I'm ashamed to admit, as a John Carpenter fan, i'd NEVER seen Assault On Precinct 13 before. It's an absolute masterpiece!
