Joe’s review published on Letterboxd:
My unintentional Tom-Atkins-as-a-world-weary-police-detective double feature continues with Maniac Cop. The DVD I got from the video store looks like it was ripped directly from a VHS tape, but that did little to dilute the expertly-crafted, flavorful, and transgressive genre entertainment on display. Obscuring Robert Z'Dar's face throughout most of the movie is an unusual choice, but gets to do some top-notch scowling at the end. Bruce Campbell! Richard Roundtree! Ridiculous that I'm only just now seeing this.
