ONE NIGHT ONLY! Wyrd War presents MANIAC COP 1 & 2 with special guest Laurene Landon in attendance!
New York City circa 1988 was a maelstrom of crime and corruption, and exploitation horror auteur William Lustig tapped into this gritty zeitgeist to create his absurdly entertaining MANIAC COP franchise. Written by Larry Cohen, and boasting a stellar cast of genre luminaries including Robert Z’Dar, Bruce Campbell, Tom Atkins, Richard Roundtree, William Smith and the very talented Laurene Landon, this supernatural slasher DOUBLE FEATURE mainlines dopamine directly into the viewers’ sleaze receptors!
Shot on location in pre-Rudy Giuliani Manhattan, and featuring some of the most striking stunts of the decade, MANIAC COP tells the story of a violent police officer who returns from the dead to exact his revenge on the system that betrayed him…and anyone else who crosses his path! In 1990, Lustig and Cohen doubled down on existential urban dread with a sequel that sees the titular zombified menace teaming up with a serial killer to paint “The Big Apple” red once again! Come for the ridiculous body counts, stay for the ham-fisted social commentary!
Wyrd War’s Dennis Dread will moderate an onstage Q&A with Laurene Landon between films.
