09/40 of Hooptober 5.0: Unleash the Horror

An unconventional slasher film where a maniac cop is going around NYC killing innocent people. A tale about police brutality and fear of those who should protect us. It has some solid moments, good kills (albeit quite tame for the time it came out), and a cast full of B-movie legends. It gets a bit in over its head with the story, but overall it's a satisfying watch.
