In 1994 Sid was doing the usual weekend happy times when an interesting film appeared at our local video stores horror section. It looked so awful that we were just drawn to it, much thanks to our recent screening of Death Ring in which our eyes were opened to the goodness of b. The film was called Wicked Games and we were told by the young video attendant "I don't know where this came from. I don't even think I can rent this out." Luckily we got it and were blown away by the ultra poor quality which we just seemed to love. It's very rare to find such a piece of garbage that enjoyable which is why were thrown for a loop with Evil Ed. Years back Sid's cousin saw this and said it was simply the worst thing he'd ever seen, and this stuck with us all these years. Somehow we were able to have a watch and discovered this one's right on par with the 94 classic Wicked Games.
This one opens up with a crazed film editor blowing up his own head by putting a grenade in his mouth. The scene is one of the most ridiculous things we've ever seen, but in the right way where you can't help but crack up. So it moves forward with a man Edward who takes the job of the newly deceased film editor. He's being forced to watch a film series called "Loose Limbs" which is said to be filled with tons of gore, nudity, and lots of sexy time. The more he watches the more he begins to unravel seeing strange visions of creatures in turn making him loose his mind. Once off the deep end he begins killing his co-workers and anyone that shows up at his house or in the nut house.
Evil Ed turned out to be an extremely enjoyable flick in the worst way possible. In no way will you enjoy this if you go into it with any expectations higher then bottom of the barrel low. It really is just awful in every sense but will be enjoyed by a very particular viewer. You really have to be like us and be able to find beauty in films like Wicked Games, Grim, Uncle Sam and many other poor choices. The acting is horrendous, the gore is so over the top, and the killings are just hilarious forcing you to laugh on a constant basis. For us Evil Ed was worth three stars under no controlled substances what so ever. If you laced the evening up with a little something it may have been a five star event, if that is even humanly possible. Guess it's just another disastrous gem from the old age of 90's horror.
