Look out, there’s an insane killer terrorizing the streets of Manhattan…and he’s a cop!
Maniac Cop is a horror mystery whodunit where we go along with the New York police force as they try to solve the biggest mystery of the summer – who is killing their citizens? And when it’s revealed that the killer is a policeman himself, people really don’t know who to trust. Besides the outlandish stunts and kills, the reason to watch Maniac Cop is for the straight-talking of Richard Roundtree (aka Shaft) and Bruce Campbell (swoon) as a young cop on the trail. When a cop turns killer, you have the right to remain silent FOREVER!
Part of Nitehawk’s August I Heart New York Horror midnite series.
