The post-production for this picture was only two and a half months. William Lustig had three different editors working around the clock to have this movie ready in time to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. See more »
When Maniac Cop throws a man into (what looks like) a thick, solid wall during the prison scene, the wall is clearly shaking. See more »
Although the UK cinema version was uncut the video release was cut by 4 secs by the BBFC to remove shots from the flashback shower murder in the prison, repeated from the original film. The Medusa DVD features the cut video print. See more »
I watched this film the other day. Was surprised how much I enjoyed it.It is loaded with a lot of social statements and humor. Bill Lustig does a terrific job with directing from the cult writer Larry Cohen script. Robert Davi is Fantastic as hardboiled Dectecive Sean Mckinney---he makes me believe the unbelievable in a horror genre film. Watch his scenes with therapist --would'nt be surprised if Sopranos was'nt influenced by this character trait as these films have a cult following ,,,Bruce Campbell has a cameo and is cool as you will see some fun casting choices throughout. the action is very well done and first rate --only criticism is makeup on monster could have been much better although not bad by all means..fun film I highly recommend just to see Davi --also number 3 ,,where he reprises his role as McKinney ..
