Assault on Precinct 13

This one is better than the remake stick to original
An absolute masterpiece, dark action thriller, tense and occasionally creepy
Like a shark. cold, dark and never stops hunting you.
A small budget and a very simple premise turned into an extremely well made, suspenseful, creative thriller, Carpenter at his best
One of Carpenters best works as he brings Night Of The Living Dead esque thrills where every protagonist, no matter how devious, is likeable
It's John Carpenter. Of course it's great.
Carpenter directs great buildup to a tense face off between the cops and prisoners on the inside and the gang on the outside.
One of legendary John Carpenter’s underrated movies! I very much enjoyed it, and had me at the edge of my seat for the most part!
There indeed an assault on a precinct but it was not precinct 13
Slow but exciting. Carpenter instills a constant sense of dread and anxiety
