    Synopsis


    Pieces
    With a tagline that reads, "You don't have to go to Texas for a chainsaw massacre," this Spanish-Italian entry into slasher film territory went on to achieve a dubious distinction as one of the most tasteless films ever produced. The bloodshed opens in 1942 with a scene of a little boy axing his mother after her discovery of him piecing together a puzzle of a nude girl. Cut to 42 years later and the little ax-man has moved on to chainsaws as he begins buzzing coeds on the campus of a New England college. Police Lieutenant Bracken (Christopher George) and his partner arrive to investigate. They find a trail of dismembered bodies that happen to be missing some parts and a group of suspects including a shady dean of students (Edmund Purdom), an anatomy professor (Jack Taylor), and a monstrous caretaker (Paul Smith). Led by beautiful undercover cop Mary Riggs (Lynda Day-George) and student-stud Kendall (Ian Sera), the investigation leads everyone to the killer, who has just finished adding the final pieces to his human jigsaw puzzle. ~ Patrick Legare, Rovi

      It's Exactly What You Think It Is!

      ...best Blu-ray set of the year! Yes the famous 1983 Spanish gore flick PIECES comes to life in this amazing set from Grindhouse Releasing. Packed with special features (including a sterling documentary on New York City's 42nd Street) and a wonderful new print, this film looks better than it has any right to be! Not only do you get 2 Blu-ray discs (including alternate audio tracks) but there is an audio compact disc with the complete score. If that isn't enough the booklet contains new comments by Gore Gazette legend Rick Sullivan along with a fabulous piece by the late, great Chas Balun. How any self respecting horror/exploitation fan can go without this disc in 2016 is beyond me...

      Grindhouse Releasing is a small blu-ray distributor, but they put more effort than most mainstream labels (WB, Fox, Universal, etc.) ever put into their releases. Because of this they have to price their releases at $20+ but, like The Criterion Collection they are worth the extra $. If you enjoy film, then I highly implore you to support the niche label distributors like Grindhouse Releasing, Vinegar Syndrome, Synapse, Shout!/Scream!, etc. Btw, Pieces is one fun/gory 80's slasher cheese!

      If you are expecting a great film you are in the wrong place. If you are expecting a great B movie then you will love it. It's cheesy overly confusing with numerous plot holes. The acting is awful and overall I loved this film.

      This tries to be a little like Texas Chainsaw Massacre with the chainsaw murders. This film has a lot of goryparts and should definitely not to be seen by children, unfortunately I saw it when I was around 12 or 13 and I was scarred.

      Grindhouse is in my opinion the best label at releasing cult horror films. The transfer of the movie is amazing and the special features are over flowing. Best blu ray release of 2016 so far in my opinion.

      This movie is everything you expect it to be. And the best part is that it holds no punches on the gore and exploitation. A special kudos to Ian Sera (Rick from Pod People) and Edmund Perdom.

      Never before has a advertising tagline been more appropriate than this one used for Pieces.
