Foycast XIV – Maniac Cop Blue Friday Special Edition



Post Thumb:


Foycast XIV – Maniac Cop Special EditionBlack Friday just became Blue Friday thanks to Blue Underground’s Blu-ray releases of Maniac Cop 2 & 3. I asked Matt Fini to join me for what I intended to be a 20-minute audio review covering the two special editions; 64 minutes later we had the makings of a Foycast.

Be warned: It begins with me rapping.

Anyone who has read my writings or listened to Dinner for Fiends or the Foycast over the years should already be well aware of my love for Maniac Cop 2. Love of this magnitude cannot be adequately conveyed with mere words on the printed paper or scrolling text on a computer screen. That’s why I asked fellow Maniac Cop fan Matt Fini to join me to record a short audio review that quickly exploded into an hour-long Foycast. I was a fool to think we could cover the awesomeness that is Maniac Cop 2 and its deeply troubled (in front of and behind the scenes) follow-up Maniac Cop 3: Badge of Silence and their fully-loaded Blu-rays in such a short amount of time.

Hear how a double-feature audio review becomes a special edition of the Foycast covering the special edition releases of the second and third installments of the Maniac Cop trilogy. There’s laughing, there’s joking, there’s praise, there’s criticism, there’s debate, and most importantly, there’s me freestyling the Maniac Cop 2 rap.

Matt Cordell would definitely tell me I have the right to remain silent forever for that last part. You may, too, after hearing me bust a rhyme.

This fourteenth edition of the Foycast is dedicated to the madman in blue: Maniac Cop.

    Things Get Bloody on Blu-ray When The Sword and the Claw Clash!



    Get ready to fight dirty as the two-fisted, ultraviolent grindhouse classic The Sword and the Claw is poised to hose down your home video collection with geysers of arterial spray! Coming to us from Alamo Drafthouse’s American Genre Film Archive on January 23, 2018, this is one title you’re not gonna wanna miss!

    We’ve been obsessed with Turkish genre films for decades,” said AGFA director Joe Ziemba. “We were blown away to discover that we had the only known 35mm print in existence for this movie, which also happens to be Turkey’s most insane battle epic. This is the first 4K preservation of a Turkish genre film in history. We couldn’t be happier to share it with the world.

    Special features include a new 4K scan from the only surviving 35mm theatrical print, face-smashing action trailers from the AGFA vault, and bonus movie Brawl Busters, which features a new 2K scan from an original theatrical print.

    The eye candy doesn’t stop there either! This bad boy is coming with some neat reversible cover art with illustration by Alexis Ziritt (Space Riders)!

    They took his money. They took his family. And now, they’ve taken his hands. But they can never take his revenge! Exploding from the same hallucinogenic netherworld as TURKISH STAR WARS, THE SWORD AND THE CLAW stars Turkish genre legend Cüneyt Arkin in his most iconic role. It’s CONAN THE BARBARIAN meets The Three Stooges meets DOLEMITE with more lo-fi bloodshed, pop-art visuals, and bizarro dubbing than the boundaries of reality can handle. This is the movie that Kung-Fu Express described as the “Dirtiest fighting ever!”
