Notorious video nasty creator William Lustig and B-Movie legend Larry Cohen return to the dirty streets for a unique high speed collision of the slasher movie and police thriller in Maniac Cop, a blood splattered tale of brutal cop vengeance from beyond the grave.
When reports come in of a man in a police uniform committing gore drenched bloody murder on the city streets, officer Jack Forrest (Bruce Campbell) stands accused. Now, with few friends, powerful enemies and a psychopathic slayer still at large, it’s up to Jack to prove he’s not guilty and bring down the killer.
Now, Arrow video brings the Maniac Cop back from the 80s video vault to stalk the night time streets once more, looking for fresh victims…
– Includes collector’s booklet by Troy Howarth, plus new video interviews with stars Tom Atkins, Laurene Landon and writer Larry Cohen!
Stay tuned to the official Arrow Forum as there’s more to be revealed…

This is great news. Arrow Video never fail to put out an extensive and expertly presented package for all of their release, they’re easily my favourite DVD/Blu Ray label going today. I’m hoping that Lustigs ‘Vigilante’ and ‘Maniac’ are also in the pipeline, as well as ‘Maniac Cop II’ of course.
