It's amazing,the things you can find in the Cleveland Public Library's audiovisual department. For one thing,I keep finding interesting shot-on-video movies like this in the Horror section. They deserve to be seen because the people who make them honestly love film and their

ideas are worth experiencing. ZOMBIE COP is cheesy fun from start to finish,with one of the best catchphrases ever(see the summary.)
