The 7th Hall Of Fame Inductee For Contribution To Editing - Frank J. Urioste

Working mostly in action and horror cinema, Frank J. Urioste cuts together scenes of violence unlike most others. Although the scenes in films such as Robocop, Total Recall, Die Hard, Road House and The Hitcher are at times Peckinpah-esque and always feel high-impact, they feel strangely both alien and familiar. I think anyone who’s able to balance violence in such a manner has the hallmarks of a great editor. Notwithstanding the violence, he’s also a strong storyteller, piecing together often brutal films so that they remain cohesively-narrative works.
