Yes! I remember watching this movie with my dad when I was probably 9 years old. We liked it so much, we sought out Exterminator 2 when it was released on video.

notbad,

Thanks for stopping by. I remember seeing this cover in video stores throughout my childhood in the '80s, but still haven't seen it so I'm looking forward to finally catching up with it when the Blu-ray is released soon.

Ty,

Glad you dig it! I'm really looking forward to the Blu-ray release from Synapse this year!

Didn't know it was finally coming to dvd\blu-ray! That's awesome!

The video cover art for this was so epic that I never actually watched the film for fear it would not measure up to the promise of the VHS box, even though it beckoned many a time in the action section.

Perhaps the upcoming Blu Ray release (thanks for the head's up) is finally the opportunity I need to have the optimal The Exterminator experience.

Colonel,

That's probably why I never picked up the video as well. What a great f'in cover...if Don May and Synapse know what's good for them, they will not mess with this iconic image! :-)
