In 1988 when Maniac Cop was released, most horror fans thought they had seen the greatest killer cop movie of all time. Yes, I’m embellishing that quite a bit, but just go with it for the time being. And then 1989 came and with that also came the birth of Psycho Cop! That’s right – Psycho Cop….the clear and obvious knockoff of Maniac Cop, but with more cheese. I do love me some extra cheese.
If ever there was a movie that needed to be released on Blu-ray, it’s Psycho Cop. Officer Joe Vickers (Robert R. Shafer) is not to be fucked with and it’s a monumental performance for the ages of horror cinema. If you couldn’t already tell, I like to make things sound much bigger and better than they actually are. Who are we kidding…..Psycho Cop is pretty terrible, but in the best way possible. It’s pure ‘alcohol consumption necessary’ viewing and needs to make no apologies for that. And I bet that you’ll be saying the joke “What has 18 legs and 2 tits?” at the next party you attend.
