Official Blu-ray/DVD Combo Artwork and Specs: The Exterminator

Post Thumb:


During the news abyss that is the San Diego Comic-Con, Synapse Films announced that the crazy Vietnam vet seeking revenge flick The Exterminator was finally hitting home video on Blu-ray. Of course this announcement was swallowed up in all the chaos, but the official artwork and specs are now in!

From the Press Release: 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.

Synapse Films is proud to present THE EXTERMINATOR in its more violent and gory Director’s Cut, lovingly restored in high-definition from original vault materials. One of the most cold-blooded and controversial revenge films ever made, this is “a sick example of the almost unbelievable descent into gruesome savagery in American movies.” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times)

Special Features

  • The Original Director’s Cut Featuring More Gore and Violence
  • The Newly Discovered Original Stereo Soundtrack Mix
  • Audio Commentary by Director James Glickenhaus
  • Theatrical Trailer and Television Spots (HD)

      Goddamn, I haven’t seen this (and the sequel) in a long time. The early 90s in fact. I do remember that I enjoyed the hell out of the both of them.

      This is a day one purchase for sure!

      “The cover art that lied too far!”

      • Masked Slasher

        LOL!! Like I said on Twitter, Exterminator 2 was more the sequel to the first movie’s ad campaign.

        • Uncle Creepy

          Dead on! They made a whole movie around that artwork! LOL

        • Shambling_in_Bandages

          Never seen the sequel, I always assumed that the poster for that was just as big a lie as that for the original film, heh. Just watched the trailer for it though and wow, he finally dresses up like he does on the posters! Kind of.

          • Masked Slasher

            The sequel is awesome too.

            I would kill for a DVD of EXTERMINATOR 2, let alone a Blu-ray.

    • Masked Slasher

      I want to know how anyone in the world could even consider NOT adding this film to their movie collections.

      I adore every frame of this wonderfully gritty, sleazy and violent vigilante flick.

        I’m doing a shuffle of shame here. I haven’t seen it. Based on your raves I’m going to buy this one… so if it sucks expect an e-mail from me saying “phhhllllllttt!”

        • Masked Slasher

          If you’ve ever liked a gritty, sleazy NYC-based revenge/action movie from the early 80s, you’ll love it.

          • Vanvance1

            Then I’ll love it.


        • Uncle Creepy

          The film literally oozes sleaze. I love it!
