The Editor made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival. It tells the story of a film editor named Rey who becomes embroiled in a puzzling and complex murder mystery. The studio he is employed by is plagued with a rash of unexplained deaths and Rey is caught in the middle. The only thing he can be certain of is that nothing is what it seems.
The Editor stars Tristan Risk (American Mary), Udo Kier (Blade), Paz de la Huerta (Nurse 3d), and Adam Brooks (Father’s Day). Matthew Kennedy of Astron 6 helmed the project. Brooks and Kennedy are responsible for the epically low budget Manborg and the Troma exploitation flick Father’s Day.
The film is intended to be an homage to the giallo films of cinematic legends like Dario Argento and Lucio Fulci. The Editor garnered rave reviews from it’s advance screenings at TIFF. It will also play at the San Francisco International Film Festival beginning today.
