Assault on Precinct 13

Assault on Precinct 13 is a film that truly defines the phrase cult film – from low budget roots; it has become acclaimed as not just one of the most successful independent releases ever, but also one of the most groundbreaking. The film helped catapult director John Carpenter (Halloween, Escape From New York), into the mainstream and also launched a million and one synth-heavy scores and soundtracks. Its influence is still felt as keenly today as it was on its release some 40 years ago.

An LA gang’s revenge-fuelled killing spree leads them to a half-abandoned police station in the throes of closing down. Under siege with power and phone lines cut, lone cop Ethan Bishop (Austin Stoker ­–  Battle for the Planet of the Apes), and his skeleton staff, including two secretaries (Laurie Zimmer – A Dirty Story and Nancy Loomis – Halloween), recruit a condemned killer from the cells in a desperate battle to survive the night. As the gang close in the tension escalates to boiling point in this brutal and unrelenting cult classic.

To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of this seminal film, Second Sight is delighted to announce the release of the newly restored version. It will be will available in a limited edition Blu-ray Box set on 28 November 2016, alongside a DVD version and On-Demand on the same date.
