  • Excerpt: Maniac Cop. Say that to yourself a couple of times. Isn’t that just a cool movie title? There were lots of its kind in the ‘80s. Predator; Robocop; Terminator; even Exterminator! That was one of the earlier ones, but still, those titles alone evoke memories of grown-up ultra-violent fantasy cinema that sounded even better when you were a kid and not allowed to see them, but you did anyway, even if you had to wait for a Friday night TV showing to sneak downstairs and...

Maniac Cop

Brutal as Hell
24 October 2011
  • Excerpt: One thing any Bruce Campbell fan should never be subjected to is the great man many years before his Burn Notice success, playing it straight. Watching him exercise his atrophied acting muscles here is similar to watching a turtle on its back. Poor bugger. I’m sure if he were brave enough (or self destructive enough) to look back at this he’d take both barrels of his boom-stick to his younger self for sure but why would he?

DVD Verdict
26 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Maniac Cop was director William Lustig's third film, not counting a couple of pornos he made in the late '70s. His first non-porn film was the great, gritty, and disturbing Maniac , one of the most memorable low-budget indies to come out of the '80s. He followed that up with the lesser-known Fred Williamson urban-revenge actioner Vigilante , and then came Maniac Cop .

Maniac Cop Blu-ray Review

20 September 2011
  • Summary: This isn't about romance...it's about murder. Duh. That quote pretty much sums up Director William Lustig's Maniac Cop , as if a movie with such a title (and reputation) needed that clarification in the first place. Maniac Cop is just as the title suggests: it's a dark and ultra-violent but not necessarily disturbing or even all that entertaining little venture into the Slasher movie genre that was so prevalent in both big-studio and small-outfit cinema in the 1980s.

  • Excerpt: Som titeln antyder så handlar det inte om någon vanlig polis – utan en galen polis. New York nattetid är inte sammankopplat med personsäkerhet generellt sett, och det blir knappast bättre när invånarna inte ens kan lita på polisen. Oskyldiga människor faller offer för brutala mord, begådda av en uniformerad man som tros vara polis. Den unge polisen Jack Forrest (Bruce Campbell) blir huvudmisstänkt efter att hans fru mördats.
