Eddie (Johan Rudebeck) has been editing arthouse features for all of his life ... when suddenly he's assigned to do some work on a series of horror movies by producer Sam Campbell (Olof Rhodin) - pretty much edit the explicit sex and violence out of a number of overly butal run-of-the-mill slashers for the international market. And for this purpose, Sam puts Eddie up at a house he owns so he can work undisturbed ... and Eddie hates the work, he doesn't like the violence and sleaziness in Sam's movies, much less having to sit through them and do work on them. Of course he complains, but Sam isn't one to listen. After a while though, the movies get to Eddie, and he sees horror, monsters and mutilation anywhere. And then a demon appears to him telling him to rid the world of all people who provide such violence - and when Sam stops by to see the progress of Eddie's work, he meets a bloody end ... which Eddie finds nothing short of exhilarating, so he proceeds murdering everyone who comes to his house in exceedingly gory fashion. Things go awry when Eddie's wife (Cecilia Ljung) and daughter (Natalie Kay) stop by the place, and he, the formerly mild-mannered and righteous guy, cannot switch off his homicidal alter ego anymore ...

 

Evil Ed is a mad movie, in the best possible way: It's gory for sure, and unapologetic about it - but it doesn't take itself seriously one bit. Basically, it's an over-the-top parody of genre fodder of its day as well as of prejudices towards the horror genre, but in a way that horror fans will still very much enjoy it, for its genre references as well as its highly original ideas - and even non-genre afficionados might get a kick out of the movie's very dark humour and its power to surprise ... but of course, it helps if one's at least to some extent into gore.

Great, if very dark and twisted fun!
