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.

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.

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.

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?!

I had to write a review because it seems like a bunch of "know it alls" just want to trash this movie (the R rated version).

First of all, this movie has been heavily cut in a way that leaves many of the gore hounds without anything to gnaw on. Boo-hoo!!! Though, I do sympathsize. This movie is not as extreme as it is labeled. It looks as though it got the same treatment by the ratings natzis as did Olaf Ittenbach's "Le6ion of the Dead". At least with the R rated version of "Murder Set Pieces" there is some sense of implication of the kills, but not too much. Many made for USA horror movies are cut this way to imply the violence happening instead of showing it. A perfect example is the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. By the way, if you don't know the "original Texas chainsaw killer", Gunnar Hansen is in "Murder Set Pieces". How is that for a bonus? Not to mention, Tony Todd from the "Candyman" films. Who said the acting sucked in another review on this site? I guess they don't really know that many horror movies. I should also comment that Sven Garret was a very convincing psychopathic killer in this movie keeping the sleaze factor high and building the tension in the final scene. He kind of reminded me of " American Psycho" with his carisma but much less cartoony.

I watch and enjoy many B-movies and I can tell you this not one. It many not be box office material due the nature of the film. But hey, this a descent slasher horror film. If you desperately need all the blood and guts get the unrated version. If you like enjoy slasher/horror movies with eye fulls of naked chicks and have at least some imagination, check it out.
