Cobra vs. The Night Slasher: Cobra (1986)

“Let’s Bleed, Pig!”

Brian Thompson always terrified me when I was a kid with his portrayal of The Nightslasher in Sylvester Stallone’s Cobra.  I don’t think anyone can say “PIG!” with more menace especially in this scene which is the climax of the film. 

Marion Cobretti (Stallone) finally catches up with the totally insane Nightslasher who keeps going on about a New World Order. Cobra decides it’s time to put an end to this nonsense once and for all.
