Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
A pair of whacked-out cartoon-like exterminator/hitmen kill the owner of a burglar-alarm company, and stalk the partner who hired them, his wife, and a nerd framed for the murder, who tells the story in flashback from the electric chair.
Extermination is not just a business. It's a way of life.

The role of Vic Ajax was originally intended for Bruce Campbell
