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
This movie is not for many. This movie was made for a specific type of horror fan, with a specific humor. For those in that category (like me), they will absolutely get & love what he created. It was a very subtle humor. It was perfectly executed & acted and I loved this film!
Absolutely mad Giallo homage. It goes off the rails towards the end but is a fun ride with great visuals and humour. Love what the Astron 6 folks made here.
Hopeless boring movie.. watching a lot of trash on shudder lately, need to stop my payments lol and unjoin..utter waste of time, only watched half of it
Entertaining homage, and parody of Giallo/slashers. Watch it even if you don't like giallo.
