The Editor ★★★

The Editor, ironically, could have done with an edit. Indie collective Astron-6, in their gleeful spirit of affectionate parody and pastiche, try to fit in a bit too much of everything into a conspicuously self-aware production that bleeds from giallo spoof into whacked-out, deliberately nonsensical Italo horror. That, and the (in)jokes - or more like the same handful of gags, repeated and repeated - wear thin long before the end. But I can't fault them for trying. Besides, it looks fantastic throughout. As an advert for their wares? I'm sold.
