  Carpenter Classic released on DVD [read more]
  Assault on Precinct 13 - see it how it was meant to be seen!
  Writer-director John Carpenter's second feature, Assault on Precinct 13 is one of his finest works and is arguably one of the greatest B-movies of all time. Now, courtesy of Contender Entertainment Group, this masterpiece of action cinema is being released as a digitally fully restored and remastered Special Widescreen Edition DVD on 17th January 2005, presenting the film in the full glory of its original Panavision 2.35:1 aspect ratio for the first time in the UK, and packaged in a limited edition clamshell box.

Coinciding with the theatrical release of the big-budget Hollywood remake starring Ethan Hawke, Ja Rule, Gabriel Byrne, John Leguizamo, Maria Bello and Laurence Fishburne, this DVD release of Assault on Precinct 13 presents the perfect opportunity to reappraise Carpenter's original masterpiece as it was meant to be seen.
