Assault on Precinct 13 (John Carpenter, USA, 1976)

 

"A fast, dark, relentlessly maintained thriller that still ranks among the best of the decade." - Film4

An LA street gang declares war on a police precinct after the killing of one of their members. A tense, gritty, and, let's be honest, NASTY little thriller from one of the all-time masters of tense, gritty and, let's be honest, NASTY little thrillers.
