Popping up on Hulu this week is the John Carpenter classic Assault on Precinct 13, his second movie and the one he did right before Halloween. The movie follows Lieutenant Ethan Bishop as he is assigned to oversee the last day of operation for the aging 13th Precinct in South Central LA. Unfortunately for Bishop, today is the day that a vicious gang called “Street Thunder” decides to launch their attack on the police of Los Angeles and Precinct 13 is their main target. Bishop and the few other people at the station must hold off the assault until help arrives. The movie also spawned a pretty decent remake starring Ethan Hawke and Laurence Fishburne in 2005. Check out the original, in full, below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
