2019 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 12: Maniac Cop (1988)

DAY 12. THE FRACAS AND THE FUZZ: Something revolving around cops and criminals.

The Sisterhood (1988)

Cirio H. Santiago, so many of your movies have crossed my path. You pretty much owned the market when it came to post-apocalyptic films made in the Phillipines, thanks to movies like Raiders of the Sun, Dune Warriors, Equalizer 2000, Wheels of Fire and Stryker. Now, you've taken the end of the world to its logical extreme: women against everybody.… Continue reading The Sisterhood (1988)
