[[caption-width-right:311:Officer Joe Vickers at your service.]]

-> ''[[{{Determinator}} He always gets his man]][[KillEmAll ...and everyone else]].''
-->-- Tagline for the first film.

''Psycho Cop'' and its sequel ''Psycho Cop [[RevengeOfTheSequel Returns]]'' (also known as simply ''[[NumberedSequels Psycho Cop 2]]'') were two [[SoBadItsGood So Bad They're Good]] {{Slasher Movie}}s [[VillainBasedFranchise which followed]] the exploits of [[AxCrazy psychopathic]] [[ImpersonatingAnOfficer police impersonator]] {{serial killer}} Joe Vickers, who is on a [[MissionFromGod mission from Satan]] [[OmniscientMoralityLicense to kill everyone he perceives as criminals]] [[PungeonMaster and make bad puns]] out of everything while he's at it. [[FollowTheLeader Curiously]], these movies hit the cinemas right after the first ''Film/ManiacCop'' installment.

In the first film, three young couples decide to have good time on a luxury cabin which resides in the backwoods. They are followed by Vickers who starts killing them one by one. Unsurprisingly, the movie ends with Vickers NotQuiteDead.

The second film opens with Vickers hearing about a bachelor party from two office workers which will be held in an office building in late-hours and it will include booze, drugs and hookers. He then follows the two men to the site of the party, locks the doors and starts killing everyone stuck inside with him.

This movie ditches the ClicheStorm teenkill-aproach from the first film and goes over the top with its presentation; [[BloodierAndGorier gore]], [[HotterAndSexier nudity]] and [[IncrediblyLamePun laughably bad puns]] are all over the place.
