Maniac Cop

Maniac Cop ★★★

Joe Bob Briggs called this a “Jason with a badge” slasher film. That description fits. Matt Cordell is a cop (possibly dead, well legally dead, but possibly alive). Anyway, he’s pissed out for being sent to prison and stabbed by inmates. So now he takes his vengeance by killing innocent folks in New York City. The kills come mostly via stabbing and defenestration, but he might have gotten away with it all if he just kneeled on his victims’ necks. Tom Atkins and Bruce Campbell shine. I had seen this movie 20-25 years ago, but the Maniac Cop series was never in my video rental rotation like the real Jason Voorhees flicks.
