Storyline

Eddie Tor Swenson is a mild-mannered film editor with a wife, child, and a comfortable job editing art and drama films for a major studio. Following the suicide of their editor, heartless studio exec Sam Campbell transfers Ed to his department, the Splatter & Gore Department, to finish what the original editor was doing: editing the highly profitable but extremely violent Loose Limbs series of slashers. Sam allows Ed the use of his secluded country cottage so Ed can go about his work undisturbed, or so he thinks. The seclusion and the constant exposure to the violent nature and content of the films he's editing start to drive Ed insane. What begins as hallucinations leads to Ed's darker, murderous side emerging, and it puts the lives of everyone around him in danger: whether it be the film-buff studio warehouse man, or even Ed's family...

Awful attempt to be classic horror parody
24 March 1999 | by redcatSee all my reviews

This movie was stupid. The plot goes like this, Ed, who is good Ed in the beginning, works at a the "Splatter and Gore" department at a movie company. His boss gives him the assignment to edit "Loose Limbs parts 5, 6, an d 7" to be distributed in Europe. While editing these films that are supposed to be comical rip offs of "Friday the 13th" and the like he begins to question the morals of these movies. He then goes crazy and kills people. It gets even more inane when the director/writer/actor begins to use Evil Dead effects for the chase scene and even has a street punk pick up a crow bar and say "groovy". The final moments are even more ludicrous.

This movie tries way too hard to be cheese and flops terribly. There are needless references to Evil Dead II and Gremlins that are not done well at all. Such as the bosses name happens to be Sam Campbell (hmm Sam Raimi,/Bruce Campbell). Ed's wife's name is Barbara and in a really dumb scene you see Ed coming around the corner saying "Bahbah-ra" (al la Night of the Living Dead). Don't get me wrong, I'm all for parody, but this pile crap lands flat. The acting isn't good and the scripting is so bad it's not even comical in its attempts to be comical. Avoid this movie.
