Ep. 92 — MANIAC COP (1988)
Our Psychotronic Summer series is coming to a close this week. And to cap things off, we're taking a look at a film that was released 30 years ago, 1988's MANIAC COP, starring cult icons Tom Atkins, Bruce Campbell and Richard Roundtree!
Does MANIAC COP hold up after three decades? How do its themes resonate today, and how do events in New York City in the 70s and 80s that inspired the film compare to our current relationship with law enforcement? And just how magical is that chin on Robert Z'Dar?
