Bit Parts (Dave Reda, 2006)

I have to say that when I watch microbudget horror films these days, I go into them not expecting much. It's a pessimistic policy, but not a terrible one; that way, when you come up with something really good, you're pleasantly surprised, and you're never too disappointed. I'd like to say that Bit Parts is something special-- another Deadbirds or something-- but it never quite gets to that level. Still, for the amateur production it obviously is, it surprised me in just about every way.

The plot, as noted by All-Movie Guide, is a riff on Eyes Without a Face, Georges' Franju's 1959 thriller: after a car accident, a plastic surgeon (Christopher Page)'s daughter (Michelle Angel) is left horribly disfigured, and he lures innocent, beautiful girls to his home to use pieces of them to reconstruct his daughter's body. When Brenda Martin (Sarah Gordon) falls into the trap, her sister Melissa (Molly Fix) and the cab driver (played by Reda) who took her to the supposed movie audition from which she was kidnapped try to find her while she's still alive.

It suffers all the problems one expects from a microbudget flick, but perhaps not as much as most; the acting isn't A-list, but it's surprisingly good for a production of this level. The script isn't as tight as it could be, but it's quick and grimly funny. The camerwork is of surprisingly high quality, and the music (supplied by Primus drummer Tim Alexander) fits in quite well. Yes, it's derivative and kind of silly, but that doesn't make it any less fun. Certainly worth killing an hour and a half with. ** ˝

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Low-Budget Film that Blends Horror and Humor March 30, 2007
Format:DVD
Bit Parts is a wonderful low-budget film that blends horror and subversive humor. I review horror films for a living so I know a few things about what makes a great film, especially in the horror genre.

Bit Parts has an original story (owing some plot points to the classic French horror film Eyes Without a Face), great character development, is professionally shot and looks great, has some great black comedy throughout and the gore (though there isn't much) looks great!

The main reason I enjoyed this film was the social commentary it presented on plastic surgery and the L.A. lifestyle. Getting lured to phony auditions is something that could really happen in L.A. and the plastic surgery angle is dead-on.

Most of all though, this is an entertaining and enjoyable low-budget film. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars great flick December 1, 2006
Format:DVD
After seing a segment on NBC 11 I went to see this movie at a theater in San Jose and I was quite impressed. It had a great combination of suspense and gore with a few laughs for good measure. The cinematography gave the movie that extra erie feel to it while the effects enhanced the gore. The actors did a good job making the characters and story believable. To make sure I hadn't missed anything I stayed for the second show. I am happy to find that it is finally available on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Indie Film March 29, 2007
Format:DVD
My wife and I are always on the lookout for up and coming directors. Looks like Dave Reda is on his way to becoming a great director. This movie has an original story line and not like the cookie cutter crap that all the other indie film makers are putting out. Not only is the have a great horror value but there is a few great one liners thrown in will have you laughing out loud. Definitly worth checking this one out and I love how it came out in the super 16 film. This movie is very good and i'd love to see another film by this director on a mega film studio budget. Good luck on your future Dave. Loved the movie.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got the movie for one reason; and one reason only. Sarah Gordon and I went to the same high school together. In 2022, I plan to take it with me to our 30th reunion and have her sign it. Of course, I hope she will by a few of my book and make it an even autograph exchange. As for the movie itself, Sarah Gordon carried the movie from the moment she came on screen. You might think I'm saying this because of my past with her; but no, truly, I felt she was the strongest member of the cast. I would recommend this movie to anybody for a little over an hour of some weird horror movie action.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scary movie April 11, 2007
Format:DVD
This movie kept me entertained. I found it scary and funny. The characters pulled me into the movie. Excellent acting, with the exception of the daughter and doctor, kept the movie believeable. LA appeared hot and sleezy, which accurately depicted the loneliness and desperation felt by many young actors there. Overall, a very good independent film.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT December 2, 2006
Format:DVD
After watching NBC do an impressive segment on BP I decided to take a chance and have a look during its theatrical release. After all, it isn't every day a tv station does a story on an indie thriller. So, imagine my surprise when I turned my tube on and saw these BIT PARTS dudes interviewed on a major network. I had to see what the fuss was about. With its mix of originality, gore, chills and comedy I must say that I too am a believer. BIT PARTS rocks! I applaud all responsible parties for choosing not to make another run of the mill cookie cutter 'mad slasher versus teens in the forest' turkey. This pic is hardcore horror and its unique premise more than demonstrates- wouldn't want to give too much away but let's just say that it centers on a nasty plastic surgeon with a seriously diabolical bedside manner. And by enlarging the dvd cover I see the clever tagline THIS IS NO ORDINARY NIP & TUCK. Truly a great homage to the successful FX series and I couldn't have said it better myself. Kudos to Dave Reda for his expert out of the box directing and for tackling a subject that is topical, fresh and one which hasn't been done to death (pardon the pun). And a special rock on to Tim Alexander of Primus for some seriously butt kicking music. Thank you NBC for giving these talented filmmakers the exposure they deserved. Take a chance everyone. Once you watch BP you won't look away!
