About The Editor

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 giallo-thriller as Rey struggles to prove his innocence and learn the sinister truth lurking behind the scenes.

The latest film from Canadian genre maestro’s Astron 6, the team that brought you FATHER’S DAY, MANBORG and THE VOID, THE EDITOR is a lovingly gruesome homage to the 70’s giallo films of Lucio Fulci, Dario Argento, Umberto Lenzi and Lamberto Bava.


"The Editor’ is a hilarious giallo homage and instant cult classic!"

Bloody Disgusting

"Probably the coolest film you'll see this year and one you'll want to partake of again and again and yet again"

Electric Sheep

"A pitch-perfect Giallo spoof"

We Got This Covered

"Devoted fans of the Italian giallo genre… will get a hoot out of the precision with which The Editor satirizes their clumsier conventions"
