Maniac Cop (1988) – A Little Cheese? Yes Please…

I watched the 1988 Cop-Horror film, Maniac Cop with my friend last night and have to say I enjoyed it. Starring Tom Atkins and Bruce Campbell, and a whole bunch “oh… that guy” actors, it gets moving kinda slowly but ramps up around the one hour mark.

The gist of the story is that a police officer was wrongly convicted on charges to benefit some officials, apparently gets killed in prison (apparently, mind you), and then goes on to seek his revenge upon everyone, guilty or not. Definitely not the best movie, it is still enjoyable, if you’ve like the movies I’ve blogged about so far. The fact that Bruce Campbell is in it automatically garners the film some “cool” points.

As I said, the film does start slowly, but none the less gathers speed, like a crescendo, near the end and sets the stage for two sequels, which I have not seen – yet. Should you watch it? Well, do you like cheezy movies? Do you like Bruce Campbell? If you answered yes to either (or both) of these questions, the yes you should watch it.

Check out the trailer below:
