According to, “Maniac Cop” is a holiday classic.

So I was browsing through's selection of holiday classics on DVD which has everything from Frosty the Snowman and Lassie's Christmas Stories to A Christmas Carol and Jingle All The Way (the last of which I'm still waiting for a sequel), but imagine my surprise when I found something that really didn't belong there.

Maniac Cop - A True Holiday Classic.

Right in the middle of page two of their "Holiday Classics" was none other than MANIAC COP. If this wasn't intentionally done by an employee with a good sense o' humor, that's gotta be one of the greatest screw-ups I've seen on their site over the years. The awesomely enormous face of Robert Z'Dar must have an equally enormous smile today.

Maybe next year they'll feature I Spit On Your Grave as a holiday classic too. From this day forth, I'm trusting with all of my holiday DVD recommendations.

Actually, looking at the Amazon product page, I see that is is paired with (if you like A, get B at a lower combined price) with Christmas Evil.

I met Z'Dar a couple year back at some convention. Super, super nice guy. A group of us sought shelter under his chin when it began to rain.

Ho ho HO, now. Perhaps Amazon isn't too far off with their choice of Maniac Cop for the holidays--come last-minute Christmas shopping time (because NO ONE seems to have the sense to stock up in the autumn months anymore), stores nationwide need to hire plenty of Maniac Cops to make sure they're still standing after the 24th. Crazed mobs can do that to the understructure of your kiosk, you know.

If that can be there, why the hell isn't Die Hard? At least that was set around Christmas.

My grandpa started a tradition of watching Die Hard as a Christmas movie.
