If the movie's IMDB page is to believe, then The Editor was made for less than $150k... Canadian. Now, we're not calling anyone a liar or anything, but this movie did not look like something that was made on the cheap, as it boasts some pretty solid Gore FX and CGI scenes.
If it was truly made for such a small amount of money, then we have even more respect for it as a film, and more importantly, the people behind it.
And if these guys can make a movie on so little, and have it turn out so good, then what in the hell are these assholes who get budgets of $1 million or more doing with their half-assed movies?
Get it together, everyone else!

Wacky Giallo hi-jinks ensue.
|SAVE HER, RAY!|
If you're familiar with Giallo, or old Italian Horror movies in general, then you're well-versed on how silly they can be; stories that make very little logical sense; bad acting; even worse dubbing; endings that make you say "What does that even mean?!?" But the beauty of Italian Horror movies lies in their ability to creep you the hell out with genuinely effective atmosphere, great scores, and boundary-pushing kill scenes, all of which is accentuated with copious amounts of gore and nudity.
And even amidst the laughs, this movie's got it all.
Adam Brooks plays the role of Editor to perfection; he'd honestly fit right into any Giallo film of old with ease. Equally as convincing, or at least nearly so, was Matthew Kennedy as Inspector Porfiry. Both of these guys know their Horror, and more importantly, they love it. Conor Sweeney may have been the funniest of the bunch playing Cal, but that's a tough call to make. The ladies of The Editor did their jobs well too, with Samantha Hill being the standout.
|PLENTY OF DRAMATIC SMOKING OCCURS IN THIS MOVIE.|
And what was with Porfiry and the mud/cake? Brilliant.
The specific homages to some of our favorite films were awesome too. We caught bits from The New York Ripper, The Beyond, Blood & Black Lace, Murder Rock, and Suspiria, with a bunch more that we probably missed. I'm sure we'll catch those on future re-watches.
|NOT SURE WHICH IS CRAZIER: THAT OUTFIT, OR THE FEATHERED HAIR.|
|POOR GIRL, SHE DOESN'T GET IT.|
|YEAH, SHE MAKES US FEEL LIKE THIS.|
|MESSY ITALIAN HORROR GOODNESS.|
|THOSE SEX SCENES... LOL|
"Arturo, she was a dancer. She was the best... the best... the best!" That one got us pretty good too.
