Maniac Cop (Blu-ray)

  • 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?

Maniac Cop (Blu-ray)

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

blu-ray.com
20 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Movies like Maniac Cop exist because the slasher genre is a guaranteed moneymaker. Audiences just seem to eat this kind of stuff up, perhaps as some macabre form of escapist entertainment, or perhaps because everyone's life needs a good scare every now and then. Whatever the reason, Maniac Cop and other, similar films seem to each have lives of their own and live on as cult favorites, even the most modest and measly of them somehow enchanting audiences with abhorrent...
