A Los Angeles gang’s revenge-fuelled killing spree leads them to a half-abandoned police station in the throes of closing down. Under siege, with power and phone lines cut, a lone cop and his skeleton staff recruit a condemned killer from the cells in a desperate battle to survive the night. As the gang closes in, the tension escalates to boiling point in John Carpenter’s unflinching cult classic.
