Originally (Joe Spinell) was to play Turkell the homicidal maniac. This would have bridged Lustig's Maniac Cop series with his earlier film Maniac (1980). However, Spinell died before filming began and had to be replaced (by Leo Rossi). The film is dedicated to Spinell in the end credits. See more »

Hulking, undead officer Matt Cordell (Robert D'Zar) returns from his apparent watery grave to wreck yet more carnage in this entertaining sequel to the 1988 film.
Whilst in my opinion not quite on par with the original, this one nonetheless certainly ups the action sequences. Of special mention there is a truly superbly staged assault on a police station when Cordell crashes in (literally!) to liberate a deranged serial killer whom he has formed an acquaintanceship with. This scene easily surpasses the very similar sequence from The Terminator when big Arnie performs his own inimitable attack on the police station in that movie.
The spectacular finale here too set a new stunt record for the longest full body burning and it is truly a sight to behold!
