Rey Ciso (Adam Brooks) was once the greatest editor the world had actually ever seen. Because a horrific accident left him with four wooden fingers on his right hand, he & # 146s had to turn to cutting pulp films and garbage images. When the lead actors from the film he & # 146s been editing show up murdered at the studio, Rey is fingered as the top suspect. The bodies continue to pile up in this absurdist giallo-thriller as Rey struggles to show his innocence and discover the sinister truth prowling behind the scenes.
Operating as a straight-up send-up of Dario Argento, Mario Bava and the cinematic sorcerers of & # 14670s slasher films, Canadian horror comedy The Editor is a charming homage to the unrecognized classics of giallo, an Italian subgenre known for its gory and gruesome sensual horror.
