Movie Info

What do you get when you combine a European art film with an American slasher pic? You get this Swedish parody that centers on milque-toast film editor Edward Svensson who is busily working on an arty new European 18th-century costume epic filmed ala Ingmar Bergman in indistinct black and white. Edward leads an orderly life and doesn't mind editing this nearly actionless film. Then his employer orders to have him edit a gory series of slice-n-dicers, Loose Limbs-I-IV. With such an endless onslaught of graphic, senseless violence, degradation, and cheesy sex unspooling before him, Edward begins undergoing a few disturbing changes and when he finally emerges from the summer cottage where he has been working he is psychotic-mutilator-of-nubile-women-and-anyone-else-who-moves Evil Ed. Those with weak stomachs may want to pass on this graphically violent comedy. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Evil Ed

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 afterwards.

When they named the main character "Ed" maybe they thought of the director Ed Wood, the guy that makes movies so bad and silly that they become entertaining. That's just what Evil Ed is, a movie with terrible acting and no serious plot whatsoever. The gore effects and the one-liners kept me entertained though. But what really made it worthwhile was to see Gert Fylking as a stupid lieutenant, smoking a cigar and overusing the word "nice".
