Maniac Cop sits somewhere between action and horror. This slice of B grade action is not a bad little watch. A large rogue cop is running around killing random citizens on the streets. Nobody can figure out who it is.
This one stars Bruce Campbell as Jack. Jack is a police officer whose marriage is on the rocks. His wife busts him in bed with another woman and then shows up dead as well. Of course Jack gets nicked for the murders, (to be fair the circumstances did point to him) until of course the killer keeps killing.
On first contact with the killer it appears that the killer maybe something more than human after withstanding a police gunfire attack. Further research points towards a violent ex police officer named “Cordell” who was previously assumed dead, after he was thrown into prison. Is Cordell back from the Dead? I’ll leave it to you guys to find out when you watch it!
Style wise Maniac Cop is another 80’s action flick and obviously shot on a budget. Its quite well done and keeps the viewer entertained the whole way through. It’s not an all time classic. It is, however a pretty solid watch and has become something of a cult classic among the B grade set. I’d definitely recommend this one for a good bit of fun.
Here’s a copy of the film on you tube, it looks to be ripped straight from VHS too for that authentic feel!
