Scream Factory have announced that the original Assault On Precinct 13 will be released on Blu-ray on November 19.
Directed by John Carpenter of Halloween fame, the movie was originally released in 1976, two years before Carpenter made Halloween. It is described in the release thusly: “Isolated and cut off from the city inside a soon-to-be-closed L.A. police station, a group of police officers and convicts must join forces to defend themselves against the gang called Street Thunder, who have taken a blood oath to kill someone trapped inside the precinct.”
Along with the film, the Assault On Precinct 13 Collector’s Edition Blu-ray will come with a collectible and reversable cover that, on one side, features new but retro-style artwork.
It will also feature other extras, but in the release it says, “Bonus extras for this collection are still in development. Final bonus features will be announced as they become available.”
Assault On Precinct 13 Collector’s Edition Blu-ray is currently available from Amazon for preorder for $24.99.
