The Editor Review


A film editor gets embroiled in a string of murders.

The Editor (2014) is a Canadian English mystery comedy horror movie that was filmed in Kenora, Ontario, Canada and Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Directors and co-writers Adam Brooks and Matthew Kennedy both directed their first full-length movie, Father’s Day (2011), and is back together for their third film, The Editor. Adam and Matthew are also actors, producers, editors and cinematographers in The Editor. The Editor is a low budget movie that was shot with $150,000. I was shocked to learn that the money earned from Fathers Day (2011) is used for the making of this film. Fathers Day was shot with only $10,000. There was no shortage of comedy, sexual content and gore in this movie, but the colors used were spectacular.

Rey Cisco (Adam Brooks - Father’s Day (2011), Manborg (2011), Lazer Ghosts 2: Return to Laser Cove (2008)) has been an editor for a long time and is the greatest editor there is. He is a film editor and was met with a gruesome faith one day on the set of a crime thriller movie in 1980. His life slowly went out of control after he accepted to do the longest movie ever and soon put a damper on his marriage. To make matters worse, he lost four fingers while working. He is not the best editor anymore and started working for movies that does not mean anything or has little potential. Someone is killing the cast one by one, and the killer started with the leading actor. Police detective Peter Porfiry (Matthew Kennedy - Father’s Day (2011), Manborg (2011), Punch Out (2008)) did not hesitate to assume that Rey is the killer. The body count did not stop after the police investigation begins. Who is committing the murders? Is Rey feeling unaccomplished and is committing these murders?

Horror fans will not appreciate this movie if they have not seen or heard about the Giallo Italian crime films. Most horror fans will have a hard time understanding the style of the film. I gave this movie a five because I am not a huge fan of these types of movies, but I am adapting to it more so I might just love it soon. The movie was a bit slow, but it was not throughout the entire movie. The soundtracks, cinematography, and bad acting were all done exceptionally good.
