Maniac Cop

Maniac Cop ★★★

A cop is murdering innocent people on the streets of New York. A young Bruce Campbell gets framed for the murder because his precinct seeming needs to pin the murders on someone rather than gather evidence.

A violent cop isn't really a stretch from what we see in real life which is why this works as a horror and social commentary without having to put much work into the plot. Bruce Campbell shows off his acting chops in this more serious role with his charismatic persona. The final act car chase makes this well worth the watch.

Academy Award goes to Tom Atkins for playing a cop, what a novel idea!!!
