John Carpenter’s Birthday

It’s John Carpenter’s birthday so we’re celebrating by showing this stunning restoration of his first proper feature (while he probably celebrates by getting stoned and playing video games). In this taut, tough film, a skeleton crew of staff, cops, and criminals must work together to defend a decommissioned police station when a Los Angeles gang on a vengeful rampage lays siege. 

Double Feature with THE RAID: REDEMPTION

“A joy to behold: a taut, aesthetic blast of violence.” – Ian Nathan, Empire Magazine

“Perhaps Carpenter’s best film next to The Thing, this is a model of low-budget filmmaking, with a tight script, appropriately tight-lipped actors and atmospheric location shooting.” – Matt Brunson, Film Frenzy
