Notorious video nasty creator William Lustig (Vigilante; Maniac) and B-Movie legend Larry Cohen (Q The Winged Serpent; It's Alive) combine their directorial and writing talents, respectively, for a unique high-speed collision of the slasher movie and police thriller in Maniac Cop, released on Blu-ray by Arrow Video on 31st October 2011.
A blood splattered tale of brutal cop vengeance from beyond the grave, the film stars Tom Atkins (Drive Angry; My Bloody Valentine), Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice; theSpider-Man trilogy; The Evil Dead trilogy) and Laurene Landon (The Ambulance; It's Alive III) and features cameo appearances by Lustig, Richard Roundtree (Speed Racer; Heroes), director Sam Raimi and the Raging Bull himself, world champion boxer Jake LaMotta.
When reports come in of a man in a police uniform committing gore drenched bloody murder on the city streets, officer Jack Forrest (Bruce Campbell) stands accused. Now, with few friends, powerful enemies and a psychopathic slayer still at large, it's up to Jack to prove he's not guilty and bring down the killer.
