Chapter VIII of XXXI
This was really fun! To my own surprise, it's both the most entertaining and the creepiest film I've seen so far for Hoop-Tober. It's a very effective mix of genuine horror, with some nice cinematography and a creepy atmosphere, and well done action scenes. There doesn't seem to be that many classics in the action-horror subgenre aside from Aliens, Planet Terror and The Terminator, but while I wouldn't label Maniac Cop as a "classic", it is kind of amazing in its own weird way. It's a B-movie, so naturally it feels a little rough around the edges during certain moments, yet it's probably much better than you think it is. Well, I was pleasantly surprised, at least. Definitely worth a watch.
Also, bonus points for nodding to Magnum Force and for - maybe - being referenced in The Dark Knight. Yes, I like to believe that Chris Nolan is a fan of this movie.
