Editorial Reviews

BODY PARTS is a bone-chilling tale about a medical experiment gone wrong. After a crime psychologist (Fahey) loses his arm and nearly his life in a grisly car accident, he undergoes a daring medical operation to have a donor arm grafted onto his body. But after the operation, the arm starts to take on a violent life of its own, striking out against Bill's wife and children. Consumed by fears about his dangerous behavior, Bill is driven to learn about the donor's identity - a horrifying discovery that delivers him into a world of unimaginable terror.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best horror movie EVER!!! April 5, 2008
Format:DVD
I have watched this movie about 50 times and it never loses its impact. The recent movie "The Eye" was a poor wanna be of "Body Parts" and had not nearly as much suspense or fear of having someone else body part attached to you. Love "Body Parts" and would recommend it to any horror fan out there!

3.0 out of 5 stars Give the boy a Hand! January 16, 2005
Format:DVD
Bill Chrushank (the great Jeff Fahey) is Living the Dream: he's a rising star, an ambitious young psychologist, has a family that adores him, has great big Eighties Hair, and even does pro bono work counselling felons at the local prison.

But that wouldn't make much of a horror movie, so our own Dr. Phil, while on some nameless interstate during the morning Rush, makes the deadly mistake of taking his eyes off the road for an instant---only an instant. His late-eighties Buick Century decides it wants to see what "airborne" is like and spend quality time with a truck, and when Dr. Chrushank awakes, he's minus a right arm. Oops.

But wait---there's hope! Turns out that Chrushank landed in the right hospital, because resident mad scientist Dr. Agatha Webb (the delectably clinically detached Lindsay Webb, who gave me shivers in the massively twisted tale of freaks in the heartland "The Reflecting Skin"---another must-see) just happens to be debuting a cutting-edge medical procedure---all she needs is wife Karen (Kim Delaney)to sign off on this waiver...hey, time's a-wasting---just sign here, Ma'am.

Now, let's stop the tape a minute. I think you and I both know where this film is going---or where we *think* it's going, because it doesn't exactly go there, which is why I took back the rental and then bought the infernal thing.

Turns out Chrushank is getting his new arm courtesy of both a cutting-edge surgical procedure at the same time notorious death-row killer Charley Fletcher (whose rap sheet makes Jack the Ripper look like a piker) is being parted from his---and not only the arm, but the other arm, legs, and even the head!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 90s Horror, OOP again March 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Metaphysically, Eric Red's horror masterpiece explores the nature of the spiritual ties between evil and the flesh along with the ethics of unrestrained advancements in medical science. But nobody really cares about that stuff. The fact that this gem was one of the most underrated horror movies of the 90s is reason enough. This film combines an incredible performance by Jeff Fahey, unsurpassed special makeup effects, an intriguing script by the writer of The Hitcher, a fast-paced plot, and a brilliant musical score. Easily one of the ten (or maybe even five) best horror genre films that the 90s had to offer.

The fact that this movie has once again gone out of print on DVD just shows how out of touch these movie studios are with their customers. This movie is in desperate need of a Blu-Ray release that could really do this incredible film justice. Significant scenes that were cut from this film in order to get it an R rating, such as the severed arm scene after the crash, should really be restored in an uncut Director's edition. With a few bucks spent to market the release, I have no doubt that the studio will more than recover the costs in a market flooded with poorly executed regurgitations of great horror films from the 80s and 90s.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fady Ghaly's reviews October 31, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This is a very interesting film that is as clever as it is scary. A real horror film that will, by the time its narrative will have completely unfolded, have you so very much involved that you'd presume you were on the opposite side of that screen of yours. And I'll go as far as saying that it'll virtually expunge the thought of you exhaling throughout the last half-hour of it, when great havoc arose among our three afflicted leading men whose lives were completely turned upside-down...or shall I say-targets.
Written and directed by Eric Red, and based upon the novel Choice Cuts by Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac, Body Parts is an exhilarating and tightly-paced film that gets under your skin and lingers long after you've seen it. This well-written work-of-art does more than provide great direction, stunning visuals, grotesque and harrowing scenes that are beyond suitable for the lily-livered, and startling action sequences; in addition, it provides superb performances from the entire cast. What can I say? Once the cast is in character and the cameras are rolling, brace yourself for some realistic work. Here you have the underrated Brad Dourif, who perfectly-to no surprise-depicts the eccentric, chilling and edgy roll of Remo Lacey, a mad artist whose isolation from the rest of the world allows him to pursue with his work, which is influenced by the same disturbing nightmares Jeff Fahey's character undergoes, who'll really just keep you breathless as the affects of his transplant gradually began to show and he, to his horror, altered into this completely new, fanatical man without a wife to wake up with or children to kiss goodnight. Many horror films lack in great performances, as you would surely know by now, but this film possibly has the finest I've ever seen!
