When the film was released, some censors overseas wouldn't allow the film to be shown unless considerable cuts were made; they wouldn't let movies show "bad guys" getting away with their crimes and wanted them brought to justice so the audiences would be sure to get the message that "crime doesn't pay".

"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.
