"This early John Carpenter movie still holds up as one of the director’s best works.” – TV Guide’s Movie Guide

“***** (Five Stars) Often described as a melding of Howard Hawks’ Rio Bravo and George A. Romero’s Night Of The Living Dead, this is one of the ultimate siege movies.” -- BBC

Isolated and cut off from the city inside a soon-to-be-closed L.A. police station, a group of police officers and convicts must join forces to defend themselves against the gang called Street Thunder, who have taken a blood oath to kill someone trapped inside the precinct.

From John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing and Prince Of Darkness), Assault On Precinct 13 combines the elements of a classic western and a modern thriller to create a riveting cult classic.

Why We Love It

“Scream Factory's 'Assault on Precinct 13' Is Worth the Double-Dip” Bloody Disgusting

“ASSAULT remains one of Carpenter’s very best works, showcasing his gifts for gritty action, ominous framing and touches of spiky humor and salted with lots of great hardboiled dialogue… the hi-def upgrade and additional bonus features make the Blu-ray absolutely worth the double dip.” Fangoria

“Scream Factory continues to roll out its slate of John Carpenter movies with their release of the director's original 1976 cult classic, one of the best siege movies ever made… Any self-respecting fan of badass movies needs to pick this one up.” DVD Verdict

“This Blu-ray release reissue of John Carpenter's Assault On Precinct 13 offers up the film with impressive audio and video and a pretty extensive array of extra features as well” DVD Talk

“This is the definitive home-video release of John Carpenter's first great film” Jake Cole, Slant Magazine
