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...

Swedish splatter movie
This movie is like nothing before in the Swedish movie making
This is the first and maybe the last swedish splatter movie and therefor a
must have for splatter fans.This movie is not as gory as Peter Jackson's Bad Taste and Braindead,but
this one also got some gory scenes.
This is a low budget movie and that explains why there isn't so much gore
and spesial fx.
The budget was actually only 250 000 swedish kroner.
Even though the budget was low they have still managed to make a good
splatter/horror movie.The things that make it funny is that it parodies many famous horror movies
like The evil dead,Gremlins and many more
It starts of like a normal movie and it takes a while before it really gets
And at the end is the best gore scenes.This is a good contribute to the splatter genre,and a milestone in the
swedish movie history.
The best awful film in the world
You know those films that are blatantly awful but you can't help but
love them? Well that's what Evil Ed is, possibly the best awful film in
the world. The sound is rubbish, the dubbing is crap, the screenplay is
nonsense and the special effects are pap. However, I can't help but
love this film dearly and I have recommended it to at least 50 people
over the years. Sam Campbell (or the guy who plays him) should be
featured on the Actor's Studio series as he is that memorable. Possibly
the greatest movie villain not named Tony Montana. Seriously, if you
don't expect a lot then you won't be disappointed. Keep a light-hearted
approach to watching this film and you'll soon rate it a ten
Intellectual? No. Funny? Yes!
I didn't really rent this movie expecting a intellectual, philosophical
movie. I expected a funny, gory splatter film, and I got just what I asked
for.Edward works for some television studio and cuts out violent stuff from
movies and such. That's his job. But when he gets to watch an entire film
series of "Loose Limbs" and cut out blood and gore. But after awhile he
can't handle it anymore and simply goes insane. He starts to see visions
monsters and persons from the films, and in his dreams a bandaged figure
tells him to start killing off the "unpure". It just so happens that
everyone seems to be unpure. After this Ed goes after several persons in
murderous rampage, including his wife, his daughter, a delivery guy, two
thieves and a SWAT team.The film can be pretty damn gory at times, yet hilarious beyond boundries.
Like the doctor scene! Holy crap, that scene is so damn hilarious its
just... Hilarious! Its sick too, by the way.Edwards boss (Samuel Campbell is his name, a homage to Bruce Campbell and
Sam Raimi) is also pretty funny with some funny lines. But Edward is the
with the real one-liners! THey are truly unforgivable!Anyway, I cannot praise this hilarious movie enough. It gets 8 out of 10

Never Seen A Movie Like That Before
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
