Hi, I've been looking for the name of a movie that I vaguely remember. The movie is about this guy who get's chased by a couple of what I think were rat catchers/ exterminators. It took place in a city setting, possibly New York. The guy in question basically started out as a looser until finally manning up ant taking on the rat catchers and wins the love/saves some lady. What would make this movie really stand out is one of the rat catchers was either being electrocuted or was using electricity as a weapon. What I do remember for certain the guy was covered with electricty. Kinda like the guy from Running Man but without the suit or car. That's about all I remember of the movie so please don't ask for more. I'm also not sure if it was an 80's movie or not but I saw it when I was kid so it was late 80's or early 90's.

This is a cool mid 80s Sam Raimi film called Crimewave.

No problem. I saw it back in the day and bought the dvd few years ago.
Still a fun, typical 80s Raimi movie (slapstick humor, Bruce Campbell...)

Hi, got another movie I cant seem to remember all that well, and again memory is pretty bad. This one I can only remember one scene. Couple of guys (maybe) are in what I think was a high school and the whole place was having a time distortion thing. There is one scene when Cleopatra walks through the halls and I think one of the guys decides to go after her. She wasn't a main part of the movie. Like before I'm not sure if this an 80's or 90's. Any help with this would be appreciated.
