Whether it is for vengeance or to cover up illegal activities, it is going to be a long night for the closing Precinct 13 that none may survive. Before Halloween, before the Fog, before Escape from New York, before The Thing, John Carpenter made the low budget, action, thriller Assault On Precinct 13 (1976). A simple idea that was inspired by Romero's Night of the Living Dead as a faceless gang lays siege to a closing precinct. In 2005 based on a screenplay by James (The Purge) DeMonaco, Jean-Francois Richet would remake Carpenter's classic with an all-star cast including Ethan Hawke, Laurence Fishburne, Gabriel Byrne, Maria Bello, Drea de Matteo, John Leguizamo, Brian Dennehy, and rapper Ja Rule. This week Invasion of the Remake gets inside Precinct 13 to compare, contrast, and ultimately see which film will survive the Assualt on Precinct 13.
