Evil Dead's Bruce Campbell is framed and arrested for a series of gruesome murders against innocent law abiding New York citizens. Witnesses claim the killer was a large white male wearing a NYPD uniform.
Detective Tom Atkins (star of "The Fog" and "Halloween III" ) is not convinced that Campbell's the man. And he's not.
Robert Z'dar(a very big man) plays the killer, a former NYPD officer sent to an Alcatraz-style jail for getting too carried away in dispensing tough justice. Attacked and left for dead in prison, he survives and is somehow smuggled out by the coroner(of all people) and now Z'dar is mad and want's revenge.
Not bad, no terror or suspense though, just several nasty and quite hilarious murders.
Shaft himself, Richard Roundtree co-stars.
