Now this is some exciting news, tinged as it is with an air of nostalgia for me, as those fine folk at Synapse are set to release the ultra-violent classick The Exterminator. I remember watching this, along with Warning Sign, Poltergeist and many others, on the wonder that was Laserdisc. Believe me, it stuck in my mind. Who can forget the infamous meat grinder scene? Ah, good times. On September 11th Synapse will be releasing the remastered Director’s Cut in Hi-Def glory on Blu-ray and DVD combo pack. Excited yet? Of course you are!
Christopher George, Robert Ginty, and Samantha Eggar star in THE EXTERMINATOR, James Glickenhaus’ explosive story of Vietnam vet John Eastland (Ginty), a man who launches a bloody vendetta against the New York underworld when his best friend is brutally beaten by a vicious street gang. Eastland becomes a vigilante hero to the public, but to police The Exterminator is a psychopath capable of dangerously undermining an entire government administration.
