Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A pretty underrated little slasher gem."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Its execution sits perched well above its scummy aim, and the end result is that you feel guilty for wishing for something more perverted."
‑ Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
"Gruesome, gory, and actually kinda fun."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Maniac Cop is still lots of fun for its "let's see what we can get away with" attitude."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A sturdy slasher flick that laces its splattery slayings with some anti-establishment undertones."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Cohen takes the slasher/serial-killer genre and puts a unique spin on it while adding plenty of gallows humor."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"Schlocky, but mildly entertaining."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
