Watch the original Assault on Precinct 13

This is a classic from the 70s. Classic Carpenter at his best, easy plot that doesn’t need much explanation. John Carpenter defies the mainstream in casting Austin Stoker as the lead hero who is African American. We have a hardcore strong woman in Laurie Zimmer and a badass ex con that we want to root for despite knowing that he is a convict. Carpenter is genius!
