Main Plot Points:
- Rey Ciso finds himself the prime suspect in a series of brutal murders when the bodies are found to be missing the same fingers he years ago in an editing accident.
What We Thought:
- Boston Underground Film Festival 2015 opened with The Editor and man did it open with a bang. The film is a ton of fun.
- The film is a hilarious horror/Italian Giallo spoof. It has some great deaths, some tremendous nudity and hilariously (intentionally) bad ADR work.
- If you’ve ever seen an Italian film from the 1970s made for the American market, this film is an homage to those hysterically bad films. There’s lots of facial hair and over acting and people getting slapped and cheesy dialogue and lots of total awesomeness.
- It’s very hard to describe if you don’t know what I’m talking about. If you understand, you’ll totally get it. I had a blast with it. The audience seemed to get it as well. And it’s not just the dumb spoofs we’ve come to expect from horror movies. It’s clever and witty. It’s not aiming for the lowest common denominator despite having random naked people walking through a scene. The filmmakers are clearly fans of the genre and the film pays respect to the genre while also being funny.
- On top of the humor is some really good gore and blood. I grew up on slasher flicks and this has lots of slashing. People get stabbed often. Blood goes flying. People scream and die. Exactly what you want in this type of old school horror flick.
- At the screening the film’s director said it will be hitting DVD soon and I can’t wait to watch it again. It’s one of those films people will be talking about. I’m telling my friends to see it and I can’t wait to watch it with them. It definitely has cult classic written all over it.
- The Editor is simply a lot of fun. It’s clearly not for everyone, but for those it’s made for, they will love it. There’s a cool car chase. Lots of deaths. Lots of naked people. Lots of blood and just a lot of fun. Find it as soon as you can.
