Visually, it’s the most interesting of the three. It feels like the one with the highest budget. The make-up effects are better, the actors feel at ease. The protagonist from the Maniac Cop 2 is once again featured, as he must face, once more, the unstoppable revenant policeman.
The kills are getting a little more creative and overkill, something known in the slasher world, but something new in this franchise. The evil cop is more iconic than ever with his large silhouette, his strong build and his military mannerism. The better photography and sound give him even more presence.
His motivation for killing is running thin, so don’t expect an excellent script. They had to tie the revenant to a Wiccan and a curse that allows him to cheat death, once more. Here is the best depiction, so far, of the horror icon that likes guns and car chases.
