MANIAC COP
1988, 85 min, USA, Dir: William Lustig

When a series of innocent people are brutally murdered by someone posing as a police officer, rookie cop Jack Forrest (Bruce Campbell) finds himself the chief suspect. Lieutenant Frank McCrae (Tom Atkins) isn’t so sure, and before long he stumbles onto what he thinks is a nefarious cover-up involving the maniac cop of the title - a superhuman monster taking on the entire police force and anyone who stands in his way. Scripted by genre movie master Larry Cohen, MANIAC COP is one of the great down-and-dirty action movies of the late ’80s. Look out for cameos from Sam Raimi and Jake “Raging Bull” LaMotta!


ARMY OF DARKNESS
1992, Universal Pictures, 96 min, USA, Dir: Sam Raimi

The third EVIL DEAD movie sends Ash (Bruce Campbell) back in time to 1300 to battle skeletons with his chainsaw and shotgun. The result is a hilarious, action-packed hybrid of JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, the Three Stooges and Mark Twain.


EVIL DEAD II
1987, Rialto Pictures, 84 min, USA, Dir: Sam Raimi

Bruce Campbell returns to the woods to battle demons (and his own possessed hand!) in a sequel that tops the original EVIL DEAD for sheer speed and inventiveness.
