    the exterminator became a video nasty in this country due to a early scene,where a man gets its back in all its cheesy glory.this is low budget stuff. but considering the disc is only £6 cant really quibble with that.robert ginty plays the exterminator and looks nothing like the character on the cover.the script has a sense of humour though ginty is wooden.christopher george as the cop on his trail is much better value.a reasonoble movie for the price.and in widescreen.what material the director has added i cant say i saw this back in 1984.its a ok movie.thats it.
