Assault on Precinct 13

1976

John Carpenter
Director
CKK Corporation
Studio

A small group of police officers and a couple of cons find themselves under siege in an obsolete police station.

John Carpenter's second feature succeeds in being a homage to Rio Bravo and the perfect film noir action thriller. If you ask me at the right moment I might say this is my favourite film of all time, it is certainly one I never tire of. Acting is not oscar quality, but considering the ultra low budget, everything else is superb, especially Carpenter's techno synthesizer score.

Wonderful.
