Evil Ed is a 1995 Swedish Horror comedy film directed by Anders Jacobsson.

The film is a satire towards the harsh censoring that the Swedish Statens biografbyrå (Cinemabureau of the state) ran from 1911 until halted in 1996. The bureau was dismissed in 2011, being the oldest film censoring organization in the world. The filmmakers were publicly ridiculed by the head of the Swedish Film Institute on national television.[2]

Plot[edit]

Edward Tor Swenson (Johan Rudebeck) is a film cutter for the Loose Limbs horror film series. He slowly goes insane editing the gory scenes and goes on his own rampage as Evil Ed, beating the friendly filmgeek Nick (Per Löfberg) up, taking his girlfriend hostage and having a shootout with special forces led by Gert Fylking.
