“Assault On Precinct 13” Gets Special Black Case Blu-ray In January

Following its release on DVD and limited-edition Blu-ray in November 2016, Assault On Precinct 13 will be getting a standard Blu-ray release in a black case January 9, 2017.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of John Carpenter’s best films Second Sight has announced 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 ), and his skeleton staff, including two secretaries (Laurie Zimmer), 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.
