The Maniac Cop (Robert Z’Dar) returns from the dead for the third time when a female cop is shot down during an attempted hostage rescue. This time, the “wrong” arm of the law wants a love girl, and nothing’s likely to stop him! He’s undead and unwed, so any cop with a pulse (and there are plenty in this flick) had better give this zombie a wide berth.
