Directed and produced by Adam Brooks and Matthew Kennedy, The Editor is a stylish, giallo-inspired horror comedy which premiered to critical praise at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival prestigious Midnight Madness program.
This hilarious send-up of classic genre cinema, spins the twisted tale of a once-prolific film editor who becomes the prime suspect in a series of murders haunting a seedy 1970s film studio. Rey Ciso was once the greatest editor the world had ever seen. Since a horrific accident left him with four wooden fingers on his right hand, he’s had to resort to cutting pulp films and trash pictures. When the lead actors from the film he’s been editing turn up murdered at the studio, Rey is fingered as the number one suspect. The bodies continue to pile up in this absurdist thriller as Rey struggles to prove his innocence and learns the sinister truth lurking behind the scenes.
A stellar cast with Paz de la Huerta (Boardwalk Empire), Samantha Hill (Bad Meat), Laurence R. Harvey (The ABCs of Death 2), Adam Brooks (Manborg), Matthew Kennedy (Father’s Day), Conor Sweeney (The ABCs of Death 2), Tristan Risk (Dark Continents) and Udo Kier (Borgia, Blade) who star in this absurdist throwback to the Italian Giallo subgenre.
