A kill-happy cop returns from the dead to get revenge on the NYPD. Patchy late entry in the slasher cycle, this has some of the quirkiness of writer/producer Larry Cohen’s best work, but is let down in places by flat performances and unimaginative direction.
A religious NYPD detective investigates a series of random killings. Splendid one-of-a-kind SF/horror with a procedural aspect. Impressively shot on the sly on the streets of New York, and with some great ideas, this is one of director Cohen’s best flicks.
Documentary offering a career retrospective of writer/director Larry Cohen. And an utterly splendid thing it is too; Cohen is engaging and forthright, and a blend of clips, archive footage, and interviews underlines Cohen’s significance to genre. Well worth your time.
