A bunch of selfrighteous bullies want to set som "new rules" in town while the police in Halifax (Nova Scotia, Canada) are on strike. They try to scare all the gays and lesbians in a bar, but by accident the owner of the establishment is killed, and the leader of the bullies then decides to execute all witnesses. One guy, though, escapes and takes refuge in an isolated block of flats. The young tenants in the house refuse to hand over the survivor, and the bullies then decide to get rid of all the residents in the house. This turns out to be not so easy, because the young people in the house barricade their apartments, set up traps and arm themselves in order to fight back, and this inevitably leads to more bloodshed and killings.

As i was in the videostore i saw this box of a movie called NightWarriors. It looked familiar, turned out to be i saw it as a kid.
I must say even now it still is a very interesting thriller.
Police are on strike in Halifax which means a lot of scum are loose on the streets. A gang kills some people in a bar but one visitor manages to escape...and these guys don't want any witnesses. A couple of friendly people let him into theire house...and thats where it goes all wrong. The gang wants the witness...and the friendly people aint gonna turn him over. What follows is the gang trying to siege the building...and the people inside have to defend themselfs all night...
Looks indeed alot like Assault on Precinct 13, Escape from New York and a bit of the Warriors. Acting in the beginning of the movie is not that good, but further on in the movie it actually improves. Some solid action and it had me on the edge of my seat a couple of times. For all you people who want go out and rent this: i guess it is hard to get. In Europe it's called Night Warriors (why?), in US and Canada Siege or Self Defense.
