YMMV / Assault on Precinct 13 (1976)

  • Cult Classic: Was originally panned in America and saw little release, but was praised in Europe and was re-released there to great acclaim and a cult following.
    • The French movie The Nest can be seen as tribute to this movie.
  • Dawson Casting: Reference is made to "the juvenile gang problem", and Street Thunder is further referred to as a "youth gang", yet all its members appear to be in their 20s at least.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The film was a bigger hit in Britain than it was in America, largely because British audiences understood and enjoyed the film's similarities to American Westerns, whereas U.S. audiences were too familiar with the Western genre to fully appreciate the movie.
  • Memetic Mutation: "I want a vanilla twist!" *SHOT*
