Storyline

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 masters of low-budget films return with a budget bigger than ever before.
7 August 2016 | by petermcknSee all my reviews

Another great from astron-6, this time depicting the Giallo genre. It has references all over the place particularly to Bava, Argento and Fulci even Videodrome and from beyond also the mandatory Fathersday references. The plot is well written the basis being it's about an editor going insane. It has gore, it has style, it has amazing camera work, it has 10 times the budget of Fathersday, it has great makeup, it has hammy acting and deliberately bad dubbing and Steve Kochanski returns to do some animating. Along with the original crew, we are joined by Udo Kier, known for his role in the notorious video nasties Flesh from Frankenstein and Mark of the Devil, we also have Lawrence R. Harvey from Human Centipede 2 which makes for a fun movie. I still prefer Fathersday which is more a take on exploitation films but this is a great counter piece but more "family friendly" with amazing re-watch ability even if you don't watch Giallo or didn't like their previous movies give it a shot they have really stepped up their game and it is great fun to watch.
