Yeah, I'm a BIG fan of Carpenter's work myself and am looking forward to seeing this new movie, THE WARD. It'll be a treat.
I happened up a dvd copy of Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13 a few weeks back while shopping at Walgreens of all places. For $6 bucks, I couldn't refuse. Still a great film. The dialogue is the best. Very tongue and cheek with plenty of smartass wit.
