‘ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13’ GENERAL BLU-RAY RELEASE COMING
Following its release on DVD and limited edition Blu-ray (news here) ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 will be getting a standard Blu-ray release in a black case on 9 January 2017.
To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the cult classic that helped catapult director John Carpenter (Halloween, Escape From New York), into the mainstream Second Sight is delighted to announce the release of a newly restored high definition version from a 1080p transfer. The Blu-ray is packed full of brand new special features including the early John Carpenter student short Captain Voyeur and the documentary Do You Remember Laurie Zimmer.
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.
