The film had a troubled production. When director William Lustig's rough cut came in at only 51 minutes, he refused to shoot the additional scenes the producers wanted and quit the project; the balance of the picture was directed by co-producer Joel Soisson. Prior to Blue Underground's DVD and Blu-ray release of the movie in 2013, Lustig was the film's credited director. However, the Blue Underground version is credited to the Director's Guild of America pseudonym Alan Smithee. See more »

A disappointing end to what could have been a good slasher trilogy
After two decent movies made with the same director and writer you would think that this would be awesome like its predecessors, wrong! Pretty much everything is messed up in this movie. The biggest problem is probably the poor writing, what was the purpose? Why and what's going on? I have no idea what I've just watched, there is little to none explanation. I find this is kind of odd thinking that this is made by the same filmmakers that made Maniac Cop 1 and 2, two movies that has a rather easy and straightforward plot, the whole movie feels rushed and unfinished. There is not much good to say about this movie, even Cordell reacts unnatural compared with MC 1 and 2, but it does have some neat fire stunts. Anyway, a disappointing and by far the weakest movie in the Maniac Cop trilogy.
