Many horror fans out there have probably seen the late-night cable staple PSYCHO COP 2 (1992; aka PSYCHO COP RETURNS) and probably wondered about the existence of the relatively obscure original. Well I found it. It sucks! Three unbearable yuppie college couples travel to a big, secluded vacation house despite the usual tell tale signs that they should go home. A psychotic, Satan-worshipping policeman (Bobby Ray Shafer), who walks like a robot (and gives a performance to match) does most of them in. The annoying characters constantly talk to themselves, are always losing things, wander off into the woods alone, guzzle buckets full of beer and whine about the feeling of being watched ("It's probably just a deer!"). People are killed with a knife down the throat, hatchet and crucifixion. This is one instance where you may have a hard time telling if it's intentionally this bad or it was all accidental. I am leaning toward the latter, but just remember the common theme is awful. Awful acting, awful writing, awful filmmaking, awful movie. "It can't be!" screams the pot smoking caretaker before taking an axe to the head.
