A fashion photographer exposes his demented childhood and zooms his evil lens on the oldest profession under the moon...in quite possibly the most notorious serial killer film ever made.

Format:DVD
I wasted $20 buying this Lion's Gate DVD from Amazon. Don't make the same mistake. This DVD is the severely mangled, MPAA-sanitized version with 22mins of footage cut out to achieve the required R-rating. There is no earthly reason to buy this R-rated version. Murder, Set, Pieces is not Shakespeare; it is not some great artistic masterpiece; it is a nasty, brutal slasher/gore flick. You are going to watch this for the nastiness and the gore, not for some deep psychological insight. It does deliver the goods but only in the unrated Director's Cut, not in this lame R-rated version which has every element of gore and nastiness painstakingly snipped out. In the end I had to fork out another $29 to order the original Uncut Director's Cut (Fright Flix Productions) from Xploited Cinema. For some unfathomable reason Amazon does not stock the Director's Cut.

Both versions present the film in its original 1.85:1 widescreen. Sadly both version are NON-anamorphic (not enhanced for widescreen TV). The sound quality is very good but there was a problem with the DD 5.1 mix on my Lion's Gate DVD. The audio seemed to skip repeatedly, with glitches and flubs especially prominent during the dialogue sequences. In the end I had to resort to the alternate Dolby Stereo track which was fine by contrast. No problems with the Fright Flix audio. Both versions feature a full-length commentary by Nick Palumbo and actor Sven Garrett, moderated by "Ultra Violent" managing editor, Art Ettinger. However the Director's Cut also comes with a separate video Introduction by Writer/Producer/Director Nick Palumbo. The Director's Cut also includes a Deleted Scenes segment which is absent from Lion's Gate's R-rated release.

Note: The 5-star reviews on this site refer to the uncut version. The MPAA-mangled Lion's Gate version belongs in the garbage bin.

this version sucks.. there really isnt much to get out of it, the effects are well done when you actually see them. most stuff is off screen and feels extremely watered down. the killer usually just uses a shaving razor which is much better done in Sweeny Todd and House of 1,000 Corpses. the use of a chainsaw is done much better in countless movies, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake and TCM: The Beginning to name a couple. the whole "following a serial killer" thing is done immensely better in Henry:Portrait of a Serial Killer".

... and people say Hostel is watered down..

decent camera work and a pretty good soundtrack are the only redeeming qualities this movie has. other than that its just.. lame.

3.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT buy the R-Rated Version May 13, 2007
Format:DVD
There is a UN-RATED version of this title available. If you want the real thing dont buy the R rated. Search other online shops for the other version.

2.0 out of 5 stars A would be cult classic hacked to pieces January 10, 2007
By romir
Format:DVD
I've read all the user reviews and it would really be nice if they would point out which version they watched cause it sure as hell was'nt the R version.I can't feel but shear disapointment after watching this version of the film.because it becomes quickly apparent that it was literally hacked to pieces.leaving what I assume is just enough to qualify as a movie.I would almost bet that you'll see more disturbing images and subject matter in saw 3 then this.

so hey dont worry watch on cause there's nothing controversial left in the R version unless your easily offended by subject matter or shots of the burning trade towers.cause as far as explicit violence goes it's not here.

All the other reviewers are correct: if you've ever wanted to see the justly-hyped, infamous MURDER-SET-PIECES for yourself, the one DVD to get is the original (now sadly OOP) Fright Flix Director's Cut Version, NOT...I repeat NOT...the severely censored Lionsgate version. In its origial form, MSP is truly one of the most graphic, brutal, creepy, disturbing, yet incredibly effective horror movies ever made - at least in the slasher genre. MSP makes "Maniac" look like "Happy Feet!" It's not art, but it's not a hack job either. For what it's worth, you can't fault director Nick Palumbo for delivering the goods: you will cover your eyes and cringe as he depicts some of the most bloody, intense sexual violence/torture sequences ever inflicted on an audience - rape, yup, decapitation, yup, cannibalism, yup, chainsaw to the head, yup, multiple stabbings, yup, shootings, child murder, yup, nail-through-the-arm, yup, should I go on? NONE of this, alas, can be found in the Disney-fied Lionsgate DVD - what is the point of proclaiming on the DVD cover "the most graphic horror movie ever made" and then proceeding to hack out all the "offensive" content? Better to check other websites or ebay to find a copy. I'd like to see what Palumbo...er...um...whips up next?!

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst movie ever March 14, 2009
Format:DVD
This is one of the most over-hyped and deceptively marketed pieces of unredeemable dreck ever. The talentless "director" knew that he could never make a quality film, so he set out to make a "controversial" film, evidently so that he could get free press from all the protests against his film. When a film is this small, ratings can be skewed by a handful of people creating fake accounts and giving it 5 stars, which is reportedly what happened with this disaster. The director made claims that 3 photolabs refused to develop the film because it was too graphic, yet I can't understand how they could know what was on the negative until AFTER they developed it. Sounds like an outrageous claim to pique one's curiosity. The dvd case is covered with warnings of "shocking, disturbing, controversial, most graphic film ever..." which is a real crime on this chopped up Lionsgate version as it is false advertising in this context. I've seen more shocking episodes of Gilligans Island. What I don't see on the cover are accolades to the skill and craftsmanship which went into this film, because there wasn't any. The sound cuts out in spots due to a bad mic connection during filming and most of the dialog had to be looped in post and doesn't match up very well. The "actors" are mostly strippers, prostitutes and porn stars, some literally pulled off the street the day before shooting. Since there is no plot and the script sucks, acting wasn't really required. Just scream and die covered in blood. Oh, and get naked first.

This was just an utterly pointless movie with a poser nazi wannabe who was supposed to be the Grandson of some top Hitler aide as the serial killer.
