In a slapstick spoof of hit men and crime stories, the head of a security systems company is bumped off by two gonzo exterminators who have gone from stomping out pesky varmints to stomping out human targets. The exterminators go after the partner who hired them and his blatantly obnoxious wife (Louise Lasser) and, in the meantime, frame a poor security guard (Reed Birney) for the murder of the company boss.

As Far as I know, and according to Bruce Campbell's commentary, this film was never actually (or at least widely) released in movie theaters. We all caught up with this on tape and on cable, back in the 1980s. I still have my VHS copy, which I've watched at least 20-30 times over the years, it being one of my very favorite Raimi Movies. I'm the guy who can literally quote chapter and verse from the dialogue. You need to now this about me, because today I ran the SHOUT! FACTORY Buy-ray edition for the first time (a thing of real beauty!), and it turns out this is sourced from a print that is actually more than SIX MINUTES longer than the version I've known and loved for so long. While not pointed out in the packaging, advertising, or even in Campbell's commentary, there are two scene extensions and one entire five minute sequence that were cut from the original release version, and appear here for the VERY FIRST TIME in darn-near 30 years. For die-hard fans, these scenes are as follows:
At 42:29, there is an additional bit of dialogue as Nancy complains about her bad night with Vic, just before she's hit with the mud.
At 51:51, there is an entire additional scene that last almost five minutes, depicting Vic returning to the apartment and being "rejected" by Nancy, who he can't really see, because she's behind a door, bound and gaged by Arthur Coddish. Vic then walks out of her apartment, glum and rejected. It's actually a crucial missing bit in the film, kind of the turning point, in which Vic thinks he's been spurned by the girl of his dreams, but of course it's one big "bedroom farce-style" misunderstanding. In the original release cut (and also in this version), the deleted scene is later referenced on the bridge, just after the film's climax, when Vic says "I went in your room and thought you didn't care about me." I always wondered what he was talking about back in the day, because that scene NEVER HAPPENED in the original release version.
And, finally, at 1:11.04 . . . there is a final scene extension, just before Arthur Coddish is killed, when Vic tries to trick him before the overpass hits. I won't spoil it, but it's a pretty lame joke.

'Blue rays are suppose to be region free. The information below might help'
Learn About Firmware' then just loads of stuff telling me about firmware, well my ps3 is updted, my blue ray player less than 6 months old, & it plays on neither, nor my xbox 360 or my laptop, it says when I put disc in its the wrong region, so although told it would work, it doesn't, waited ages for it to be delivered & love the film, just can't watch this copy of it
