Maniac Cop

Maniac Cop ★★★

31 Days Of Horror Day Ten

I had heard of this movie, and the sequels, for a long time now. I thought I had watched at least this one before, but I don't think that was the case. I didn't remember any of it, so maybe I had just watched some clips from it before. It was very cool to see Tom Atkins and Bruce Campbell in this movie. I enjoyed watching Atkins in this movie, he always seems to bring the right attitude when he plays a cop. I didn't care all that much for Campbell though. Maybe it is because he wasn't in it a lot at first. I just didn't care for his acting much, but maybe that just had to do with his character as well.

I found it interesting that they treated the bad cop as something you would see in a creature feature. There are a few times where he is shown but not well enough to know exactly what he looks like. It isn't until close to the end when he is completely shown, much like a creature feature. I didn't get into the story much, about a cop killing people and the suspect trying to clear his name, but that could have been because I knew just enough about the story that I knew what was going to happen. I didn't know everything, of course, but enough to kind of spoil the plot. I think because of that, this was just an average movie for me.
