MANIAC COP
1988, 85 min, USA, Dir: William Lustig

When a series of innocent people are brutally murdered by someone posing as a police officer, rookie cop Jack Forrest (Bruce Campbell) finds himself the chief suspect. Lieutenant Frank McCrae (Tom Atkins) isn’t so sure, and before long he stumbles onto what he thinks is a nefarious cover-up involving the maniac cop of the title - a superhuman monster taking on the entire police force and anyone who stands in his way. Scripted by genre movie master Larry Cohen, MANIAC COP is one of the great down-and-dirty action movies of the late ’80s. Look out for cameos from Sam Raimi and Jake “Raging Bull” LaMotta!


NIGHT OF THE CREEPS
1986, Sony Repertory, 88 min, USA, Dir: Fred Dekker

When a couple of pledges thaw out the corpse of a fraternity member who was infected by aliens, they unleash a zombie epidemic on campus. A loving homage to the B movies of the 1950s. MONSTER SQUAD auteur Fred Dekker directs this cult favorite, which gave Tom Atkins the role of a lifetime. "The good news is your dates are here. The bad news is ... they're dead."


HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH
1982, Universal, 98 min, USA, Dir: Tommy Lee Wallace

Michael Myers gets a day off in this unusual chapter of the HALLOWEEN saga. A murder-suicide in his emergency room leads Dr. Dan Challis (Tom Atkins) to the Silver Shamrock mask manufacturing company, run by the evil Conal Cochran (Dan O’Herlihy). Cochran’s take on trick-or-treating is to distribute Halloween masks that will kill millions of children - unless the doctor can stop him.
