Podcast: Maniac Cop 2 (1990)

Though we didn't know when we picked this movie that an actual maniac cop would dominate the recent news, it's apropos enough that our episode this time around is Maniac Cop 2 starring the late, great Robert Z'Dar.

After hero cop Matthew Cordell (Z'Dar) is murdered by some corrupt police officers, he comes back as a super strong brain dead zombie cop who kills other cops. When Jack Forrest (Bruce Campbell) and his girlfriend Teresa Mallory (Laurene Landon) drop him into water in the first movie, Maniac Cop returns to finish what he started. He finishes what he started, and then just kind of meanders around with a serial killer while Detective Sean McKinney (Robert Davi) and police psychologist Susan Riley (Claudia Christian) lackadaisically look for him.

Some Notes:
  • No matter what you think about the movie, it is 100% worth it for the Maniac Cop rap over the end credits.
  • Nick watched this movie on VHS, which contained trailers for The Long Walk Home and Terminator 2, as well as an anti-drug PSA Always Chasing Rainbows.
  • Maniac Cop never actually kills anyone in a Jacuzzi.
