That’s not what scissors were intended for.

Here at HFC, we love our movies to be completely insane, over-the-top, and outlandish. After all, insane and horror movies tend to go hand in hand. They’re the perfect medium for completely ridiculous plot lines, acting, and scenarios — and we love every second of it.

The latest over-the-top film comes in the vein of Italian horror spoofs, except this one was directed by two Canadian filmmakers, Adam Brooks and Matthew Kennedy, who also star in it. The film was actually released last October, but is seeing a new light as it’s released to Blu-Ray on September 8th.

A synopsis of the film:

A film editor with wooden fingers becomes the prime suspect in a series of gruesome murders in this outrageous homage to the Italian giallo films of the 1970s and ’80s. Rey Ciso (co-director Adam Brooks) used to be one of the world’s best film editors. But that was before the accident that robbed him of all four fingers on his right hand. Subsequently outfitted with a wooden prosthetic, Rey now toils away editing lurid genre films in Italy. Rey seems to have reached the end up his rope when a sadistic killer begins stalking the cast of the latest film he’s editing. Now, Rey must race to prove his innocence to the detective (co-director Matthew Kennedy) who seems to have his number. Meanwhile, should the besieged editor fail to catch the killer soon, he could end up becoming the next victim. Udo Kier, Tristan Risk, and Paz de la Huerta co-star.

Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive clip, and we’re excited to check this one out. The murderer is shown attacking his helpless victim and stabbing her in the hand with a knife, and instead of using said knife to continue his attack, he grabs a pair of scissors. What perfect timing for back to school! We bet that wasn’t on most peoples’ minds when they headed to Staples for their September essentials.

And here’s an official trailer for the film:

It looks crazy and silly and we can’t wait to check it out.
