Big Trouble in Little Cinema: The Films of John Carpenter – Assault on Precinct 13 (February 26)

Pin It

Cops, secretaries, and prisoners stuck in a soon-to-be-shuttered L.A. police station fight off a horde of murderous gang members in director John Carpenter’s ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13.

 

When the LAPD kills several members of the South Central gang Street Thunder, the remaining members avenge themselves by way of a bloody war waged against cops and citizens alike. Caught in the crossfire is Lt. Ethan Bishop (Austin Stoker), who’s managing a skeleton crew at the local and soon-to-be-closed police precinct. As the gang members close in, Bishop forms an unlikely alliance with a group of prisoners in order to defend the station and the lives of everyone in it.

 

Critic Quotes:

“A vital moment in the career of one of cinema’s most important directors and a searingly tense thriller in its own right.” – CineVue

“One of the most effective exploitation movies of the decade.” – TimeOut

“…there’s no mistaking the modern racial and sexual politics encoded in the distinctly western elements of Carpenter’s lean, mean, genre-defying masterpiece.” – Slant Magazine
