Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of my top horror films of all time! Not only is this the ultimate chainsaw movie, it's the ultimate slasher film. It has everything you could possibly want, by the bucketful. Full on chainsaw violence, absurd amounts of nudity, and the greatest ending in horror history.
A masterpiece of early 80's sleaze. " -- Eli Roth, director of CABIN FEVER and HOSTEL

"One of the most shocking exponents to hit the Deuce in the 1980s. PIECES went straight for the jugular.. one of the few movies at the time that silenced the most raucous grindhouse audiences." -- Bill Landis, SLEAZOID EXPRESS

"The best chain-saw flick since the original TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. Splatter City. FOUR STARS!" -- Joe Bob Briggs

"a PERFECT 10!" -- Chas. Balun, THE GORE SCORE

Product Description

Grindhouse Releasing is proud to present the first official US release of the sickest and most violent of all the early '80s slasher movies. A psychopathic killer stalks a Boston campus, brutally slaughtering nubile young college co-eds, collecting body parts from each victim to create the likeness of his mother who he savagely murdered with an axe when he was ten years old! Pieces is a wild, unrated gorefest, with enough splatter and sleaze to shock the most jaded horror fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY!!!! AN "OFFICIAL" DVD RELEASE OF THIS CLASSIC! September 17, 2008
By John
Format:DVD
NO SPOILERS IN ANY WAY! (which would be easy to do by accident here)
I can't even begin to express the excitement I'm feeling, sitting here right now salivating over an Official DVD release of one of my favorite Genre pictures of all time!!! Juan Piquer Simon's PIECES!!!! If you understand as well as have any appreciation for the "Golden age of Gore" films (raw horror movies made between 1981 to 1986) or as what they refer to them now as "Grindhouse Films" this is a MUST OWN. The only print of this wonderfully little sleazy gorefest that has EVER been available was a BADLY TRANFERRED, washed-out and badly side-cropped fullscreen print (Depending on which label was on the VHS you could tell which "side" the film was centered towards in order to avoid showing the "decapitation in the grass" aftermath.BUT, I still get great joy out of even for all it flaws) that's been on DVD for all these years in public domain. This is time to rejoice!!!!
THE FILM: PIECES
Opening in a flashback with what (at the time, and still is) was one of the most taboo, brutalistic & disturbing axe murders ever shot, the movie quickly leaps to the "present" and follows a "typical" Italian (even though it's Spanish)Giallo style approach, with Sexy female college co-eds getting slaughtered on campus by a black gloved killer who likes to keep "trophies" from each girl (Chainsaws are the killer's fave instrument of destruction). Christopher George and wife Linda Day-George co-star as the stereotype, hardboiled gumshoe and the sexy, sweet undercover cop who starts teaching tennis on campus in order to investigate while remaining under the radar of the killer. (Hopefully.....

4.0 out of 5 stars There's Only One Way OUTTA HERE......Piece By Piece! February 1, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Back in the 40s, a woman scolds her son for putting together a jigsaw puzzle depicting a naked woman. Understandably the boy then hacks his mother into...pieces. Forty years later the killer is on a college campus, and he's determined to finish that jigsaw puzzle, but he's upped the ante and using real chicks. Why go on a killing spree forty years later when the puzzle could have easily been solved before then? Hell if I know, this is a slasher film. Maybe he's just sick of getting screwed on those jigsaw puzzles with the missing pieces they always seems to be selling at Goodwill. Using a chainsaw and clothed like a killer from an Italian giallo thriller, he goes about the campus collecting whatever body part is needed for the next piece. If you ask me, a chainsaw really isn't the most efficient tool for a slasher movie killer to use since there seem to be more cons than pros attached to them if you really think about it. It does get the job done and eliminates all that tiresome hacking with an ax or machete. A detective played by Christopher George(who everyone should recall played the reporter in Fulci's City of the Living Dead) is on the case and has difficulty...ahem.. piecing together the mystery. He enlists the help of a womanizing student and a tennis pro(a nice looking piece herself) to sift through the handful of suspects. One of them is the goofy maintenance man played by Paul Smith(the big dude who played the evil warden in Midnight Express), but it's obvious he isn't the killer considering how hard they try to make him look like the killer. The Dean and the anatomy professor are a little fishy too. So who is it?? The hell if I'm gonna tell you.
Pieces is a film that has all those ingredients all of us lovers of trashy slasher cinema love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nasty Slasher October 22, 2009
Format:DVD
I have this as part of my Blood Bath compilation of movies for along time that was the only way you could get a copy of this. Pieces is a film you either love or hate. For the skeumish and the easly influenced this is not a good film to see. If you like limbs and other parts cut off and being used for a real Jigsaw puzzle that this film is for you. From the first few minutes to the last second of the film the blood really flys. Like all NASTY films of the time there is a bit of sleaze and sex, but mostly the butchers made this film bannd in the UK. The film starts with a gruesome scene of the killer as a young child butchering his mother after she caught him playing with a Nudy puzzle. Years later he now starts making a puzzle out of the flesh and body parts of women. Most people can't stand this movie because the acting is almost impossible to watch and other people argue that the rip off film Torso is much better. Most versions of this movie have terrible restoration problems, particurlly with the DVD looking like a VHS in which case my version does. Still if you like sick gory films it's worth a watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks, Grindhouse, for giving us the "complete" edition! September 15, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Okay, so "Pieces" may not be "The Exorcist" of its generation, but it is still a classic for so many reasons. Long overdue, however, was an "official" release, and we have Grindhouse Releasing to thank for that. The Diamond Entertainment cut just did not do "Pieces" any justice.
What really made "Pieces" a classic was its "unintentional humor." For example, the lady police officer is attacked assaulted by a Kung Fu master, then the guy just stiffens up and drops unconscious to the ground... But when Kendall, the "hero," arrives, it's all well; it's his kung fu professor, after all. Everybody is laughing and smiling as he says "...must have been bad chop suey!" And can somebody PLEASE explain to me... What was up with the skateboarding girl? How did THAT fit into the movie? Did I miss something?
You can watch the uncut version, dubbed in English, or you can watch the original Spanish version, with a different soundtrack (and less hokey dialogue)... or you can watch the uncut version as it was played at the Vinehouse Theatre, and join in with the audience hooting and hollering at the dialogue. Even the interview with Paul Smith, who played the creepy custodian Willard, was very interesting. I had no idea that some of these European movies had dialogue taped in English, Spanish, or whatever language the actor(s) spoke.
In closing, this edition of "Pieces" is a must-have for collectors of horror.
