Following its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2014, THE EDITOR has gained a massive cult following among horror afficoonados. Astron-6 (the kickass Canadian film crew behind MANBORG and FATHER’S DAY) up their game to a whole new level with a film that works as both a delightfully dark and comic satire and a love letter to the Italian pulp Giallo films of the 1970s. Starring Paz de la Huerta, Udo Kier, Laurence R. Harvey and Jerry Wasserman. Actress Tristan Risk is set to join us in person for a Q&A following the screening.

THE EDITOR (Adam Brooks, Matthew Kennedy / 2014 / 95 mins / 18 A) | 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.
