MANIAC COP
(1988) Dir. by William Lustig
Innocent people are brutally killed on the streets of New York by a uniformed police officer. A young cop, Jack Forest (Bruce Campbell, The Evil Dead Trilogy) finds himself marked as the chief suspect after his wife is murdered. As Lieutenant Frank McCrae (Tom Atkins, Lethal Weapon) investigates, the death toll rises and he suspects a mysterious police cover-up. This “maniac” cop must be stopped, but it might not be so easy. He seems inhuman, and ready to take on the entire police force, hell-bent on revenge! Written by Larry Cohen (Black Ceasar, It’s Alive) and directed by William Lustig (Maniac, Uncle Sam).
