Eddie Tor Swenson is a mild-mannered film editor with a wife, child, and a comfortable job editing art and drama films for a major studio. Following the suicide of their editor, heartless studio exec Sam Campbell transfers Ed to his department, the Splatter & Gore Department, to finish what the original editor was doing: editing the highly profitable but extremely violent Loose Limbs series of slashers. Sam allows Ed the use of his secluded country cottage so Ed can go about his work undisturbed, or so he thinks. The seclusion and the constant exposure to the violent nature and content of the films he's editing start to drive Ed insane. What begins as hallucinations leads to Ed's darker, murderous side emerging, and it puts the lives of everyone around him in danger: whether it be the film-buff studio warehouse man, or even Ed's family...

Screenwriter Christer Ohlsson worked as an editor, censoring out violence from American slasher films for the European market. This served as an inspiration for the plot of this film. This is Ohlsson's first and only screenwriting credit. See more »

You brought "Loose Limbs 7"?
Yeah, sure did. Great movie!
"Great movie"? Ninety minutes of condensed sex and violence - do you call that a "great movie"? Do you have the slightest idea of what the moral and ethical principle is?
Hey man, relax! You shouldn't take things too seriously.
I'm perfectly relaxed!

When i rented this movie I expected it to be a horrible boring movie, but
boy was i ever wrong. This was very entertaining. Parts of it freaked me
a little while others made me laugh like hell. If you ever get a chance
watch this movie.
