Brief Synopsis:
The Electronic Killer

For many years the planet Zeist lived in peace and harmony until the robots they had created to protect their world turned against them. A war that lasted for many years turned the once blue skies of the planet Zeist into darkness. On the final days of the war a cyborg escaped to the nearest Galaxy but little did he know a young Space Marine was close behind. Now the war will continue on our planet.

Mad Man

A murderous psychopath break out of a mental hospital during a power blackout and lay siege to a bunch of teenagers on holiday
Intention:
The intention was to take two well known franchises and present them in a new light. built around the idea of how a cinema experience used to be. the fan edit is built around a very alternative universe that includes commercials, news reel trailers and a short film.

The Electronic Killer

The idea behind the edit was to give it a concept, the concept being that the studio didn't believe a film that involved a time traveling cyborg sent to kill an unborn child, while a soldier from the future sent to protect the mother would work. So the film has been radically edited so that they are now beings from another planet. In doing this many continuity errors and mistakes now occur, also a lot of stock footage from other films has been added in able to tell this new story.

Mad Man

As the Electronic Killer this edit seeks to reimagine the Friday the 13th movie. Alot of the more familiar elements have been cut to give the viewer a new experience. acting as the B movie to this double feature less focus and attention is given to this edit. Just as with Tarantino's Death Proof i wanted the edit to feel like two films have been edited together to create a new film.

This edit was sick, loved the taxi driver opening! Loved the story of Madman, cleverly put together. Good job man and good luck editing your next one!

I liked how the fanedit is presented (like a double feature program of a grindhouse theater) full of fake trailers and adds. The first movie (Eletronic Killer) is awesome but I think that could be more well made. The ending with another Schwarzenegger movie is great and made me laugh. I was curious with the second movie (Mad Man) because I love the Friday movies but in the end I was disappointed. If you want too see this fanedit I recomend just the first one.

The Electronic Killer:

Man, this is a fun fanedit. Gloriously lo-fi in true grindhouse tradition, the video is ugly, the audio is grating and the editing is sloppy. Absolutely perfect. Combining Aliens and Terminator like this is a blast, if only for the Bill Paxton connection. I'm a sucker for 80s metal, so I was loving the additions to the soundtrack. Lots of laugh out loud moments. It's rare when a fanedit this good comes around. Highly recommended.
Didn't watch the B movie (and probably won't) but if it's up the quality of the feature, I'm sure horror fans will dig it.
