Maniac Cop

Maniac Cop ★★½

Daily Horror Hunt #37 | July 2021 (2/31)
Prompt 8: Watch any movie from hunt host annabel 🌱🧚🏼🦖's "100 Must-See Horror Movies" poster

A generic 80s slasher film that has maybe a smidgen more depth than your usual mindless horror flick due to the fact that the killer is wearing a police uniform, forcing the viewer to reckon with police brutality in an oblique way. But this isn't exactly striving for Jordan Peele-levels of social commentary... Maniac Cop is pretty by-the-numbers the majority of the time, and is overall pretty lame besides that epic car chase at the end!
