What I'm Watching:

31 Days of Horror - Day 19 "Maniac Cop 3"


Maniac Cop 3 (1993)

Why did no one tell me how fun this series is? It's weird to me that the worst in the series is the one with Bruce Campbell and Tom Atkins but that's just the way the cookie crumbles. And this one, while not quite as good as the second, really brought something to the table. I particularly enjoyed the look of the movie, and was surprised how with every film, the production values seem to increase.

Reading up on this movie seems to be a recipe for trouble since all I ever seemed to find was negative information. Apparently this entire film was plagued with difficulty throughout and even had the director storm off and leave production. Which is surprising because while the movie is silly, it still takes on the same tone as the others. And how about that Die Hard reunion? Or Robert Forster? Or... you know what, just do yourself a favor and go check out this series. It's a cheesy good time with real tension beneath it.
