New York City finds itself terrorised by a seemingly insane killer who dresses up like a cop, with the chief suspect claiming he was framed and City Hall ostensively involved in some kind of cover up. Can the detective on the case figure out what’s going on? With its illustrious cast - Tom Atkins, Bruce Campbell, Robert Z’Dar, Richard Roundtree, William Smith and many more (not to mention a cameo from boxing legend Jake LaMotta) - and an infectious blend of both horror & action, swirled with a nice thick core of detective procedural, it’s easy to see why Maniac Cop has remained a favourite of genre-lovers over the last three decades.
Jay Chattaway’s original motion picture score is an electronic homage to film noir that also manages to retain its own identity as a thriller soundtrack: tense, driving and utterly compelling!
