Maniac Cop review

There's no waiting for the movie to grab your attention as there are four separate death scenes in the first twenty minutes of the movie. Maniac Cop also has its own unique theme music which captures the mood of the movie rather well. There are additional scenes not in the theatrical version that can quite easily be found as either deleted scenes or spliced into the movie in some DVD releases as an extended television cut. Both versions are fine to watch although I'm personally more fond of the extended version with the television scenes as I believe it has a more satisfying ending.

I used to watch this movie throughout my childhood, so it has that particular attachment to me also. I remember the VHS at my local video store had a gruesome, bloody image from one of the scenes on the back of it which left an everlasting impression on me.
