It’s the start of a Junkfood Cinema double feature.
PSA: You can now Support Junkfood Cinema on Patreon!
This week, Cargill & I bring you the first of a truly killer double feature! From the twilight of the 80s slasher boom comes a noir-y oddity chock full of supreme b-movie icons and wickedly bold plot twists.
Maniac Cop is true cult gem if ever there were one and we explain how not only is it an oddly prescient slasher flick, but also how when paired with its sequel, it draws interesting comparisons to the first two Godfather films.
Next week, we’ll be bringing you…Maniac Cop 2!
