THE EXECUTIONER, part 2 - rare trailer
Wauw, check out this awesome trailer for THE EXECUTIONER, PART 2!! It's just been uploaded to YouTube (thanks Diabolik!). The film is about a Vietnam soldier who returns to America and cleans things up. The film is a complete rip off of THE EXTERMINATOR and that's the ONLY reason it's called "part 2". There is no part 1!!! Hahaha. The film company (most likely) hoped people would think this is the real sequel for THE EXTERMINATOR!!
The original film was directed by James Glickenhaus and came out in 1980. This "sequel" (directed by James Bryan) came out in 1984. Incidentally, an official sequel was also released the same year, THE EXTERMINATOR 2 (dir by Mark Buntzman).
Unfortunately, none of the sequels (official and non-official) are released on DVD. And to worsen things even further, the UK VHS is cut to shreds and the US tapes carry the cut R rated print. The old Danish ex-rental tape is uncut (and the Dutch tape is most likely uncut too).
And further cuts; the UK VHS release of THE EXECUTIONER 2 is also cut (even tho the BBFC homepage states they didn't cut it so the cuts probably were done before the film was submitted for classification). Someone I knew yrs back, and who saw the film when it came out, said there are two short scenes missing from the UK tape.
Anyway, watch the trailer, it's pretty good!
