The Exterminator

 Some interesting coming soon stuff has shown up on the Synapse website. The one I'm most excited about is The Exterminator on Blu-Ray.

   One of the better Death Wish rip-offs, this stars Robert Ginty (best known to most people from the TV show Baa Baa Black Sheep) as a Vietnam vet who goes vigilante on the streets of New York City after his best friend is killed by a gang. Great views of pre- Disney Times Square/42nd St. and some pretty spectacular Vietnam footage shot at Indian Dunes in Calif.  Also starring Christopher George and Samantha Eggar.
   A bare bone non-anomorphic mono DVD was issued by Anchor Bay years ago and this is sure to be a major upgrade.
