Storyline

A group of office workers decide to have a party in the office building. Among other things, they want to have some drugs there. Their conversation on the subject is overheard by Joe Vickers, which is rather unfortunate for them, since Joe Vickers is a policeman. Even more unfortunate is the fact that Vickers is also an undead psychotic satanist, and instead of arresting them, he will make sure that nobody leaves the party alive...

You have the right to remain... dead.
31 July 2004 | by (IN) – See all my reviews

Hilarious. I viewed the original "Psycho Cop" a few years ago and found it to be... actually, it is one of the worst films of all time. So, I saw the sequel in a store, and I immediately remember that all sequels to horrible horror films ("Sorority House Massacre", anyone?) are usually way more entertaining than the original. And, wow, is this movie ever entertaining. I'm not sure how anyone could watch the first movie and approve a sequel, but this is totally better than anything else in the horror/comedy genre.

Psycho Cop is Officer Joe Vickers, a man on a mission. He's on a mission to kill people and utter one-liners. He wanders around an officer building and stabs a man in the eye and goes, "Keep an EYE OUT for me." Then, he throws someone down an elevator shaft and says, "That's the problem with elevators -- you always end up GETTING THE SHAFT." Every punchline is delivered with such grace and such bravado that it's as if Jerry Seinfeld himself wrote the one-liners.

All the actors are amazingly hilarious. You have a dorky guy with shark teeth and you have a bunch of strippers. While this movie may actually only be an excuse for some girls to run around and scream while wearing black thongs, it is still one of the greatest films ever and worth the $4 you'll find it for in most places. Totally wonderful.
