Maniac Cop - Official Announcement
Maniac Cop (Arrow Video)
Police brutality never felt so good
Notorious video nasty creator William Lustig and B-Movie legend Larry Cohen return to the dirty streets for a unique high speed collision of the slasher movie and police thriller in Maniac Cop, a blood splattered tale of brutal cop vengeance from beyond the grave.
When reports come in of a man in a police uniform committing gore drenched bloody murder on the city streets, officer Jack Forrest (Bruce Campbell) stands accused. Now, with few friends, powerful enemies and a psychopathic slayer still at large, it’s up to Jack to prove he’s not guilty and bring down the killer.
Now, Arrow Video brings the Maniac Cop back from the 80s video vault to stalk the night time streets once more, looking for fresh victims...

I haven't seen the film but, with the excellent cover art and great selection of extra features, this will sit very well with all my other Arrow Video BDs.
Let's face it, any film starring Bruce Campbell is worth watching, no matter how cheap or silly!
Love this film, can't wait for this BD release!
Yet another DVD to toss on the ever growing "Redundant" pile!
I've never seen this film, shame it's a BD only as I haven't made the jump to Blu Ray yet, might be time to upgrade with this and Blue Undergrounds new version of Zombie Flesheaters looming on the horizon
I LOVE the Maniac Cop films-impressive package indeed!
How's about a nice Arrow boxset with the sequels?
Come. It is time to keep your appointment with the Wicker man.
I have the USA Special Edition of this so will not be double dipping.
I am posting as I hope this announcement means Maniac Cop 2 may be soon on the horizon, please?
