"They're Dead, Alex! Dead!"...
8 December 2019 | by azathothpwigginsSee all my reviews

In COP KILLERS, two hippie-types named Ray and Alex (Jason Williams and Bill Osco) believe they've hit the big time after purchasing a satchel full of suspicious white powder. After a bloody shootout at a police roadblock, the unscathed duo emerge to start meeting "chicks". Soon, they're stealing an ice cream truck, committing another murder, and hitting the road, while groove-tastic music plays. Yep, they're ruthless, desperate, and heading for the border! An ultra-cheap production, this movie is filled w/ fun stuff like haphazard sound, a stock, travelogue musical score, hit-and-miss acting, visible, under-the-shirt microphones, visible production crew, etc. Regardless, it's an effective piece of 70's crime drama w/ an ending that is bleak and satisfying. BEST PART: When our "heroes" arrive at the hippie hive / drug den. There, we are introduced to two wasted women that are a stoned out hoot! In addition, their giant, Sasquatch boyfriend is a bearded wonder!...
