Thanks to John McDonagh
During the 1970's, a series of novels about a Vietnam vet turned vigilante called the Executioner were published that may have inspired the Exterminator; this series continues today.
Thanks to Neil Pike
The special effects in the opening 'Vietnam - Flashback' sequence were created by Stan Winston, who later went on to do the effects for such movies as "Terminator 2", "Aliens" and "Jurassic Park".

Christopher George also starred in another 1980 classic, Lucio Fulci's, "City Of The Living Dead".

"I'll be back" .. Am I right to tell my friends that this was the 1st movie to use that line more than once? Thus making it the original "I'll be back" movie?
Thanks to Scott
There was a sequel to this movie, "Exterminator II." I don't remember much other than John converts a city dumptruck into an armored vigilante machine and that the main bad guy (who happens to be a heroine dealer- very eighties) was played by the king of easily forgotton movie Mario Van Peebles.
Thanks to Don
This movies famous line "If you're lying, I'll be back" sounds like a line of ex-Terminator Arnold's from "Twins", where Arnold forces a doctor who fertilized them both to tell him and Danny Devito where their bio mother is, to which Arnold menacingly replies: "If you're lying, I'll be back.."

Bogus Trivia

There's often fake stuff floating round, y'know? -Like the 'ghost boy' that can allegedly be seen in "Three Men And A Baby".

But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "The Exterminator".
