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...

Quotes

White Demon: I'm still waiting.
Eddie: I don't understand. Waiting for what?
White Demon: For you to prove yourself. You've got such potential. It would be a real waste if you didn't put it to use. A whole world needs to be corrected. There is much work to be done - I trust you will be happy to do your part.
Eddie: I tried to do my best!
White Demon: Yes, I know about your work. Now let me honest, I'm far from pleased. You know what's shown on the screen is a mere reflection of someone's ungodly sick mind. You have to remove these minds or else ...

Never Seen A Movie Like That Before
15 January 2006 | by CMRKeyboadistSee all my reviews

Evil Ed is a Swedish film about a man named Ed (of course)and his collapse into total madness after editing a series of B horror films known as "The Loose Limbs" series. Ed becomes so mad that he thinks he's seeing demons and monsters but in reality they are people he knows and people that are close to him, such as his wife and daughter.

I first saw this movie back in 1998 and was baffled by what I had seen. To this day, this movie I consider to be one of the darkest comedies out there. As the movie is almost slapstick funny with its gore scenes there are still a few creepy moments.

This is a cool flick but don't expect anything marvelous. It's simply just a fun movie that is good to show some of your friends for some laughs. 8/10 stars
