Did You Know?


Cop Killers came to be made because the film Flesh Gordon (1974) had been confiscated in a police bust. Flesh Gordon's associate producer Walter R. Cichy needed money in the mean time because of the delay of Flesh Gordon, so he enlisted Flesh Gordon star Jason Williams to make an R-rated gritty action film. See more »

I am in this film!
27 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am in this movie and for 36 years didn't even know it was ever released. I'm the lead cop in the final scene with the shot gun that guns the bad guys down during the exciting climax. I have posted it on Youtube. We spent the whole day up in Kearney, AZ filming that last sequence. The producer gave the car to an old man who came along catching rattlesnakes. I remember waiting while they went into town to get some kind of brains at Safeway to put under the girls skull cap in order to get the right effect when they shot her in the head. My family was quite surprised to see me in the film as they didn't know anything about it. Yes, the movie is bad, but in a good way. You can see the microphone cords running under the bad guy's shirt in many scenes. In one shot one of the sound guys can be seen in the back seat of the car. The director wasn't big on re-doing scenes. The movie was shot in 16mm and then transfered to 35mm. It cost $50,000 to make of which I was paid $100. What a hoot! I'm giving it a 10 cause I'm in it!
