The 2004 Optimum DVD of The Exterminator is fully uncut but fullscreen and devoid of any extras other than promo trailers. The previous DVD release (2000) by Synergy was widescreen (with trailer) but featured a cut print (22 secs from the decapitation and soldering iron torture scenes).

The nearest I saw to an uncut version was the Bravo screening years ago.However the scene where the cop was electocuted on the train lines was still cut.I think all the other footage cut on the Guild video was intact.Not a great film by any means but I'd love an uncut dvd version & the original cover was a cracker.

Yes I have TWO UK dvd of The Exterminator here, one from Synergy release and one from Optimum release which is, as Vin says there rightly, uncut!

Still haven't seen the uncut version. It WAS lucky I first saw it on video hire way back in mid '80 which was the theatrical cut version and NOT the re-release video with heavily cut version!

I also am SURE the film was the R - rated for that video release!

The video version of The Exterminator classified by the BBFC in the 80's was the one with the additional BBFC cuts (on top of the cinema cuts). I don't think it was the R version. Did the MPAA ever cut the film? I know the BBFC did but never heard of the MPAA cutting it.

Yes the re-release video version was!...NOT the pre-cert video version as that was the one I saw on the rented video!

I'm sure I read that someone mentioned from somehere that there were one or two scenes were cut for US cinema release..I might be wrong...

The soldering iron scene is still pretty sick today IMO.
I found that scene to be very disturbing,

Found this - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080707/...read/105627954

So I presume few of them MAY been cut for its US theatrical release and MUST'VE submitted the R -rated version to the BBFC for its UK cinema release?..I don't know
