A Rare Case: Maniac Cop

I honestly like this movie, but I hate the lack of care given to the movie's menu.

Yeah, how long did that take you guys? Your $20 DVD burning program was sure put to the test there. 

Incidentally, it's not visible in still-frame, but the center picture is a minute-long clip from the movie...that loops.

You'll have to excuse the low-tech approach to this one, by the way, as this was before I got VLC Media Player to get my screen captures.

Up next, I cover a pair of movies that defy both logic and conventions. These things are truly Rare. Stay tuned...


  1. The Synapse Films release of MANIAC COP is a nice package and far superior, recommended if you have any interest in the movie beyond just a one-off viewing...

  2. Well, that's good to know, at least.

    That's about as good as when I heard about them re-releasing 'Grizzly' and 'Day of the Animals'- this time with a MENU and SCENE SELECTION. How considerate of them.

  3. ...also, you now owe me money, because when I went to Amazon to get that link, I talked myself into ordering MANIAC COP 3, thereby rounding out my MC trilogy on DVD. YOUR fault! ;)

  4. I'm actually looking at buying up an entire series that is even sillier to own, so I won't say anything. When/if I dod it, you'll understand what I mean.

    On a side note, I watched the first part of Maniac Cop 2, but got really turned off by a decision they made in the story. I'm sure you know what it is if you own the movie.

    Also, MC3 is on Instant Viewing, so I'll screen it there first. It does sound good 'plot-wise.'

  5. Yeah that MC disc is friggin awesome, grab their version of GRADUATION DAY as well to complete the shitty menu collection
