This is a fun popcorn flick to watch, featuring Tom "Thrill Me" Atkins and the man with the chin Bruce Campbell as a couple of cops who have to deal with a murderous cop who is going on a rampage. Everyone suspects Bruce's character is responsible but the only thing is guilty of is having an affair with a lady cop. She joins them in tracking down and stopping the killer cop before he murders everyone in sight.
There's a reason behind the killer motives as why he is doing what he is doing. You can understand why he is doing it, but what you wont understand is how is able to survive fatal wounds to be strong enough to keep killing. I think this was an attempt to set up another slasher franchise, and it got two sequels. But it just didn't get the audiences interested enough to keep it going. The Maniac Cop couldn't contend with the big boys like Jason and Michael Myers.
In all, this is a movie worth watching, especially during Halloween.
