William Lustig set his arm on fire in order to convince Leo Rossi to have his arm set on fire at the film's climax. Rossi agreed and wound up having his bushy beard singed by the flames. See more »
Maniac Cop 2 takes place immediately after Maniac Cop. Near the end of the first film we are told it's St. Patrick's Day (hence the police parade scene), but at the beginning of part 2, the police commissioner is decorating his office for Christmas just after a scene where a Christmas carol is heard by church bells. Seeing as where one movie takes place directly after another movie this is an obvious continuity issue. See more »
There's a piece of Cordell in every cop. Every time arresting some mutt isn't enough, because we know they'll be back on the streets before we even do the paperwork. Every time we pull a trigger and it feels good, because no lawyers can reverse that. It all comes down to justice and pressure. There's only that much difference between a cop and a maniac cop.

If Joe Spinell was not dead I assume he would have been the evil serial killer in this film.
Going down a sleazier road than the first film, My favourite slasher star of the 80s, Maniac Cop is back. And this time its the turn of Robert (Licence to Kill) Davi to take him on.
In many ways this one is better made and more action packed than the original. It just lacks the charm. It is definitely less fun and more sleazy, as the Maniac Cop joins forces with a fellow serial killer. This maniac kills strippers.
The brilliant shootout in the police station rivals The Terminator and the pace is fast.
Again featuring a brilliant B-list cast including: Bruce Campbell, Robert Davi, Charles Napier and Babylon 5 star Claudia Christian.
