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 a right to enjoy this movie!
18 February 2008 | by snick725See all my reviews

Psycho Cop Returns is a ridiculously hysterical, spectacularly bad, and above all thoroughly bad movie.

It would seem that a group of people with nothing better to do hired a thirteen year old to write a script, then broke into an office building and filmed the entire movie in sequence in one night.

Yet, let me be the first to say that the end result is nothing short of a miracle. The last twenty minutes are a tour de force, and throughout the movie the script increasingly becomes more and more ridiculous and funny. I was laughing so hard I couldn't believe it.

Rent this movie if you are ready for the time of your life!
