Maniac Cop ★★★½

Turns out the real maniac was man.

Or how Larry Cohen smuggled ideas about growing distrust of the police force in urban America (strangely right ahead of Mayor Dinkins drastic expansion of the police force in New York) into a slasher-by-way-of-The-Terminator.

Clicked the "like" without hesitation because of a heart-stopping stunt right at the finish line and a great cast of broad-jawed character actors. Damn, young Bruce Campbell was one handsome dude.
