“You have the right to remain silent – forever!” Following our screening of King Cohen, come and celebrate one of Larry Cohen’s masterpieces as it turns the big-3-0: the original, quintessential video nasty, Maniac Cop. After reports of a man in a police uniform committing horrific murders on the streets of New York, 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 his innocence and bring down the killer before it’s too late. A violent, sleazy, rip-roaring gore-a-thon for lovers of pure cinema, legends Cohen, Lustig, Campbell, Landon (the A-team for B-movie freaks) turn this into a gleeful grindhouse romp that’s about as much fun as you can have at the movies.
“An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn presents a playful and often charming blend of outré humour and genuine emotion that makes [director Jim Hosking] one of the most distinctive new voices in current cinema.”
