Blue Underground Announces
MANIAC COP 2 Theatrical Screenings
You Have the Right to Remain Silent…FOREVER!
October 17, 2013 (LOS ANGELES) — Blue Underground is bringing a 2013 DCP Restoration of director William Lustig’s MANIAC COP 2 to theaters this fall in advance of its upcoming Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack release.
Featuring a brand-new 4K High Definition transfer from the original camera negative and new Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, this MANIAC COP 2 DCP is the definitive presentation of the action-packed cult-horror favorite. Bill will attend MANIAC COP 2 screenings in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and other select cities (TBA) to introduce what critics have hailed as “Truly The Greatest ‘80s Horror-Action Movie Ever Made!” (Alamo Drafthouse).

See the restored MANIAC COP 2 theatrical trailer:
“Although MANIAC COP 2, like the first movie, played theatrically upon its initial release in every corner of the world (the Pakistani poster is a hoot!), in the States it went straight to home video and HBO. While I understood the business decision, it was still a crushing blow for what I considered to be my best film – and still do. So this long overdue theatrical release is very personal for me. I’m thrilled to finally share this film with audiences around the country the way it is meant to be seen!” – Bill Lustig
In MANIAC COP 2, Officer Matt Cordell is back from the dead and stalking the streets of New York once more. Cordell was once a hero, but after being framed by corrupt superiors and brutally assaulted in prison, he sets out on a macabre mission of vengeance, teaming up with a vicious serial killer to track down those that wronged him and make them pay… with their lives!
Scripted by Larry Cohen (IT’S ALIVE), MANIAC COP 2 boasts an amazing cast including Robert Davi (LICENSE TO KILL), Claudia Christian (THE HIDDEN), Michael Lerner (BARTON FINK), Laurene Landon (HUNDRA), Leo Rossi (HALLOWEEN II), Robert Z’Dar (TANGO & CASH), Charles Napier (THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS), and Bruce Campbell (THE EVIL DEAD).
