'Maniac Cop 2' and 'Maniac Cop 3' are Blu-ray Bound

Posted Tue Sep 17, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The action/slasher sequels will terrorize Blu-ray in November.

In an early announcement to retailers, Blue Underground is preparing 'Maniac Cop 2' and 'Maniac Cop 3' for Blu-ray on November 19.

The Maniac Cop series' first sequel pits Matt Cordell (Robert Z'dar), the crazed, murderous "Maniac Cop" of the first film (now horribly disfigured after a particularly brutal stay in prison), and Turkel (Leo Rossi), a serial killer who likes to murder strippers, against a frenzied NYPD detective, Sean McKinney (Robert Davi), who is just one step ahead of a nervous breakdown.

In 'Maniac Cop 3,' Officer Katie Sullivan (Gretchen Becker) storms a hostage situation, and is shot by the supposed victim who is apparently an accessory to the crime. She manages to return fire before slipping into unconsciousness, ultimately killing her shooter. The whole incident is captured on tape by an unscrupulous media crew who edit the footage to show Kate killing a helpless victim. Now in a coma, Kate's only hope is another detective, McKinney (Davi), who tries to clear her name. Unbeknownst to him, Matt Cordell (Z'Dar), the "Maniac Cop," takes it upon himself to clear Kate's name and exact revenge upon those responsible for smearing her name. His vigilante mission takes a twisted turn when he kidnaps Kate from the hospital and prepares for an unholy wedding in an abandoned church. When McKinney interrupts Cordell's deranged plan, an explosive confrontation may finally send the Maniac Cop to his final fiery doom.

'Maniac Cop 2' will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD MA 7.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Audio Commentary with William Lustig and Filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn; Back On The Beat - The Making Of Maniac Cop 2; Cinefamily Q&A with Director William Lustig; Deleted Scene; Theatrical Trailers; Poster & Still Gallery; Isolated Music Track; and D-Box Motion Control.

'Maniac Cop 3' will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Wrong Arm Of The Law: The Making Of Maniac Cop 3; Deleted and Extended Scenes; Theatrical Trailer; Poster & Still Gallery; Original Synopsis; and D-Box Motion Control.

Suggested list price for each Blu-ray is $29.98.
