Maniac Cop is Coming to Blu-Ray!

Hello people,
Just some news about another great release from Arrow Video, The release of Maniac Cop, to be honest i haven't seen this in years and had forgotten about it but good old Arrow have dug up another obscure classic from the vaults and are releasing it on Halloween, great stuff! Makes me wonder what else they have lined up, bring um on!!

Notorious video nasty creator William Lustig (Vigilante; Maniac) and B-Movie legend Larry Cohen (Q The Winged Serpent; It’s Alive) combine their directorial and writing talents, respectively, 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, the film stars Tom Atkins (Drive Angry; My Bloody Valentine), Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice; the Spider-Man trilogy; The Evil Dead trilogy) and Laurene Landon (The Ambulance; It’s Alive III) and features cameo appearances by Lustig, Richard Roundtree (Speed Racer; Heroes), director Sam Raimi and the Raging Bull himself, world champion boxer Jake LaMotta.
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.
Maniac Cop (cert. 18) will be released on Blu-ray (£27.99) by Arrow Video on 31st October 2011.
