Maniac Cop is still lots of fun for its "let's see what we can get away with" attitude.
Cohen takes the slasher/serial-killer genre and puts a unique spin on it while adding plenty of gallows humor.
Its execution sits perched well above its scummy aim, and the end result is that you feel guilty for wishing for something more perverted.
A sturdy slasher flick that laces its splattery slayings with some anti-establishment undertones.
Schlocky, but mildly entertaining.
Gruesome, gory, and actually kinda fun.
