"The Exterminator" is a one hell of a vigilante thriller.This legendary flick obviously influenced by Micheal Winner's "Death Wish" has Robert Ginty as a Vietnam vet,whose friend is badly injured by street gangs.James Glickenhaus("Suicide Cult","The Soldier")creates an ultra gritty atmosphere of wonderfully seedy New York."The Exterminator" is extremely brutal:the double murder in the whorehouse really stands out-you can see a half naked fat guy getting shot in the kidney at point blank range with a pistol loaded with poison bullets.Grisly and unforgettable!Add also one of the most brutal decapitations ever captured to film and you have a winner.All in all,I'd strongly recommend this film to everyone interested in vigilante flicks-"The Exterminator" is surely an unforgettable experience.9 out of 10.
