A group of office workers decide to have a party in the office building. Among other things, they want to have some drugs there. Their conversation on the subject is overheard by Joe Vickers, which is rather unfortunate for them, since Joe Vickers is a policeman. Even more unfortunate is the fact that Vickers is also an undead psychotic satanist, and instead of arresting them, he will make sure that nobody leaves the party alive...

User Reviews

An instant b-classic...
28 December 1999 | by Drunkard-2See all my reviews

I dunno what this other guy's talking about, but this film is an instant classic. Directed by Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City, The Invisible Maniac) under the alias Rif Coogan, this is one of the funniest, most entertaining horror film parodies ever made. Not a bit of it is meant to be taken seriously. Psycho Cop, returning from his ill-fated venture in the first film, seeks out a couple of blue-collar office workers after he suspects their planning of something illegal. Indeed, these two genntlemen, Larry (played by Roderick Darrin and Miles David Dougal) are planning a bachelor party for their friend, after the office closes. Both actors portray the films comic relief, Brian as the "ninny" constantly whining and looking over his shoulder and Larry as the go-for-broke party animal. As the party rolls on, members of the party as well as "Gus, the nightwatchman" (with a name like that, you know they're not serious) begin dying off, and Brian suspects something's up. The surviving partiers and a co-worker, the beautiful Barbara Niven, begin finding the bodies and the fun begins... A great movie, much more enjoyable than the Maniac Cop films.
