Assault on Precinct 13
1976
 
This taut action flick from writer-director John Carpenter pits an understaffed police station against a bloodthirsty gang's angry horde gathering outside the precinct's walls. Before Carpenter hit pay dirt with slasher and sci-fi fare (Halloween, Escape from New York), he directed several low-budget, suspenseful thrillers. Assault on Precinct 13, co-starring Austin Stoker and Darwin Joston, is among his best.

A classic, unfortunately felt contrived, almost as if part of the story was missing. The second half of the movie wasn't bad though. I definitely prefer the remake Assault on Precinct 13 over this original.
