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!Read more ›
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.
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!
