Directed by Adam Brooks, Matthew Kennedy
A homage and parody of the Italian giallo from Canadian production company Astron-6, THE EDITOR tells the story of a talented film editor whose career is ruined after a tragic accident disfigures his hand. Unable to find work at respectable studios, Rey, resigns himself to a quiet life working on low grade B movies, but when actors at the studio turn up dead, he finds himself the number one suspect. Packed full of homages, astute references and cameos, THE EDITOR is a humorous and loving look at the Italian subgenre.
A once-prolific film editor finds himself the prime suspect in a series of murders haunting a seedy 1970s film studio in this absurdist throwback to the Italian Giallo.
Cast: Paz de la Huerta, Adam Brooks, Laurence R. Harvey, Udo Kier
Astron-6 rules and can do no wrong! If you grew up with weird Italian Giallo films then this is for you!
Great homage. I gave it 4 skulls because I’m not sure it has wide appeal. Unless you’ve a couple of giallo films you may not understand the parody. Even then they only need to twist things about 10-20% to emphasize the craziness of these films.
hard to follow this one. but it is quite old. not much horror.
I just couldn't get into it. Wish I could have, it looked decent.
Never seen a Giallo movie but I still enjoyed this one, it was a fun movie to watch with great humor.
