Assault on Precinct 13: 40th Anniversary Edition - Preview

Assault on Precinct 13

Preview by Jack Foley

ASSAULT On Precinct 13 is a film that truly defines the phrase cult film…

From low budget roots, it has become acclaimed as not just one of the most successful independent releases ever, but also one of the most ground-breaking.

The film helped catapult director John Carpenter (Halloween, Escape From New York) into the mainstream and also launched a million and one synth-heavy scores and soundtracks. Its influence is still felt as keenly today as it was on its release some 40 years ago.

To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of this seminal film, Second Sight is delighted to announce the release of a newly restored high definition version from a 1080p transfer.

It will be will be presented in a stunning limited edition Blu-ray box set, packed full of brand new special features including an early John Carpenter student short, as well as the original soundtrack CD and art cards, and is set for release on November 28, 2016, alongside a DVD version and On-Demand on the same date.

It will be available on Download-to-Own from November 21, 2016.
