Trivia

Much of the hospital scene in which Nightslasher tries to kill Ingrid was cut down for pacing and because of the violence. Death scenes of janitor and nurse were originally shown onscreen and there was also additional murder scene where Nightslasher kills police officer who was guarding Ingrid. In later scene where Cobretti and Gonzales are taking Ingrid out of the hospital and when Cobretti talks with Monte, part where officer's death is mentioned was cut to avoid continuity mistake, which is why there is some bad editing in that scene.

80's entertainment at it's best
17 June 2003 | by (Austin Tx) – See all my reviews



First of all....to all the people who bash this film, I have one question for you. Did you see the cover? If after seeing the cover, Stallone with sunglasses an Uzi in his hand and a match in his mouth, and you still rented this and hated it you deserve what you get. If you want to watch "Masterpiece Theater" and pretend not to be bored then go ahead. Leave action movies for the fans of the genre.

This movie doesn't pretend to be anything that it's not. It's a violent, campy, 80's Stallone vehicle that is a lot of fun.

Cobra is a cool character with catchy one liners and an awesome 50 Merc Coup. He wears sunglasses and a match in his mouth. A rouge cop who works the zombie squad and is a lonely guy until he meets an aspiring model who he's been hired to protect.

If you dont like Stallone then this film will not change you're mind.

4 **** stars

Ps. The movie is an editing masterpiece. Edited by Don Zimmerman who edited "Being There"
