Maniac Cop 2 (1990)

Maniac Cop 2 (1990, USA) C-88m. * D: William Lustig. Starring Robert Davi, Claudia Christian, Michael Lerner, Bruce Campbell, Laurene Landon, Robert Z'Dar, Charles Napier, Sam Raimi. Sequel to the quite good MANIAC COP (1988) has a silly setup which undermines the whole film. The killer cop didn't really die in the first film, he survived and is going on another rampage. Campbell (the first film's hero) is killed early on. Notwithstanding some interesting casting, several effective scenes, this sequel is as uninspired as any FRIDAY THE 13TH follow-up. Written and produced (again) by Larry Cohen. Followed by MANIAC COP 3: BADGE OF SILENCE.
