Reviews Wanted: Running Time, Maniac Cop, Thou Shalt Not Kill...Except

Any of these discs any good?

I haven't seen any of these movies. I only ask because they all have Bruce Campbell audiocommentaries. I love the Evil Dead movies, Brisco County, Jr., Jack of all Trades.

Thanks, Hendrik!

Looks like I'll probably forgive myself for not pursuing the OOP Maniac Cop disc, but I'm almost definitely going to get Thou Shalt and Running Time.

Bruce should do everyones commentaries!

Well I guess I am in the minority, I loved Maniac Cop, and escpecially loved the commentary, sadly enough I dont own that one. Though Running Time and Thou Shat Not Kill are proudly displayed in my collection. Personally I liked Running Time better. It was new and interesting, and really enjoyable. I watched that with and without commentary back to back. It does not get boring on multiple viewings. Also I must mention that a lot of the interesting material taht is discussed is by way of Bruce bringing something to Beckers attention and then they both discuss it.
Thou shall not is more schlock value, though seeing Raimi as the deranged cult leader is worth the price of admission, well not really, but the commentary is. Again by Campbell, who I believe co authored the story. It has a decent plot, and looks better than it has ever done on vhs, not to mention a really tight commentary.

Count me as another Maniac Cop (1 & 2) fan. Really wish I had the DVD too, but sadly I never got it. Anyone know if its ever going to be picked up again by someone, maybe Anchor Bay will pick it up like they did Maniac, and have basically the smae features only cheaper than Elite?

I too like the Maniac Cop movies. The commentary on Running Time was awesome. The movie wasn't too bad either...
