Junkfood Cinema Podcast: Maniac Cop

By  · Published on May 27th, 2016

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!

You should follow Brian (@Briguysalisbury), Cargill (@Massawyrm), and the show (@Junkfoodcinema).

(Quick note: We’re now embedding the Soundcloud version of the show, but you can still download every episode via iTunes or your favorite podcatching service!)
