89: Siege (aka Self Defence) (aka Nightwarriors) (1983) with Justin Decloux
Did you guys know about the Halifax police strike that crippled the city back in the 70's? No? How about the awesome cult film Seige (AKA Night Warriors, AKA Self Defence) from 1983? Neither had we! And that's why we were so lucky to have the extremely knowledgeable Justin Decloux from the Important Cinema Club Podcast on this week.
It's Home Alone meets Assault on Precinct 13 in this very tight little thriller. We don't want to give too much away, so check out the full film which is available on Youtube, then listen to the episode to find out all about the missing 12 minutes of footage, some behind the scene info from actor Jack Blum, and some insight into the mystery of filmmaker Maura O'Connell.
This week's end credit music is Fly By Night by Rush. It's catchy. Don't judge.
