Assault on Precinct 13


Assault on Precinct 13 is a 1976 American action-thriller film written and directed by John Carpenter. It stars Austin Stoker as a law-enforcement officer who defends a defunct police precinct against an attack by a criminal gang, along with Darwin Joston as a convicted murderer who helps him. The story was inspired by the Howard Hawks western film Rio Bravo and the George A. Romero horror film Night of the Living Dead.

The film received mixed reviews with an unimpressive box-office return in the United States, but it won critical and popular acclaim in Europe. A remake appeared in 2005, directed by Jean-Francois Richet and starring Ethan Hawke and Laurence Fishburne.

Assault on Precinct 13 - A

One of the best low budget classics ever. The music is the main character in the film, because it emphasises the danger, worry and how hard it is in that place. MUCH MUCH MUCH better than the film they have the cheek to call a remake.
