Product Description

When you meet him, you ll go to PIECES!

Jigsaw puzzles can be maddening. They drive to distraction. You might even go so crazy to take your own mother down with an axe...

On a Boston Campus, young girls are missing out. Missing out on hands, feet, arms and heads as a certain puzzled psychopath, forty years down the line, carves a bloody swathe through the female college population. Only one tough cop has the stones to bring him in but can he track down the slayer before all the girls are mincemeat?

If you want classic, leering, sleazy, slasher action, then PIECES will take a chainsaw to your skull.

5.0 out of 5 stars "..TOP 80'S CLASSIC GOREFEST.." 29 April 2012
Format:DVD
This is indeed a must own classic slasher horror from the early 80s, one of the best in terms of a good classic who did it story where everyone is suspicious, very twisted in places with a great shock ending, plenty of juicy blood and gore moments with a chainsaw most of the time, it has all the classic ingredients, if your into horror and love old school horror from the 80s this is a must see at any cost.

4.0 out of 5 stars PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER, 11 Jan 2014
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A lad kills his mom after she punishes him for doing a jig-saw puzzle of a nude. Now 40 years later young girls are being slashed and pieces removed from them as a human puzzle is being assembled. But who?

This is a classic 80s film complete with Linda Day George. It has killing, gore, nude scenes with a full frontal. Everything a guy wants in a slasher film.

4.0 out of 5 stars JP Simon's cult splatterfest - uncut! 5 July 2012
Format:DVD
I have the Grindhouse Releasing special edition of Juan Piquer Simon's low-rent, stalk 'n' slash cheesefest, PIECES (1982).I love the absurdity of this film and can watch it again and again.I'll probably double-dip and get Arrow's DVD too, as they always put a lot of effort into their releases.If you dig juicy gore scenes, ridiculous dialogue, chainsaw mayhem, and random chopsocky action, then this is the movie for you!

By West25
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In 1942, a young boy called Jimmy is discovered by his mother putting together a jigsaw of a naked woman. Disgusted with Jimmy, she orders him to go and get a plastic bag so she can get rid of all the filth in his room. Whilst she is looking for things to throw out, Jimmy enters the room with an axe and proceeds to hack his mother to pieces. For some reason the police feel it necessary to break into the house when the nanny reports she knocked on the door and there was no answer, upon entering the house they find the severed head of Jimmy's mother in one closet and Jimmy weeping in another. The police question the whereabouts of the father, the nanny claims that he's in europe with the Air Force but he has an aunt who lives an hour away, and she can take Jimmy there.

Flash foward 40 years to 1982, and we're at a college campus in Boston. It's obvious that the killer is now a grown up Jimmy, and despite a few red herrings it's obvious which character Jimmy is despite a change of name. Girls at the campus are being butchered and chopped to pieces with the killer's favourite weapon being a chainsaw, it is upto Lt. Bracken, Sgt. Holden, Mary Riggs who works as a tennis coach but is an undercover officer, and a student called Kendall to discover the murderer's identity.

The acting is pretty dreadful, but if there's one type of film where I don't mind bad acting it's '80s horror films, specifically slasher films. Christopher George plays Lt. Bracken, George should be well known to horror fans for his work in City Of The Living Dead, Graduation Day and Mortuary. His acting is terrible yet strangely enjoyable, his character is probably the worst Lt. ever seen on screen. All of the actors give mediocre performances but like so many '80s slasher movies, the film is all the better for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I'll Send You A Box Of Lollipops" 30 Aug 2011
By KD
Format:DVD
Now we're talking!

Looking for a super gory slasher film? Looking for a film so bad its genius? Then look no further. For Pieces is just what the doc ordered! Featuring blood by the bucket loads and unintentional laughter throughout, this film would be a proud addition to any cultphile or horror fan out there. But this film is anything but your typical run-of-the-mill stalk and slash cycle. With a plot that takes the impressively vicious body count from such films as A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and FRIDAY THE 13TH mixed with a whodunit gillo-esque murder mystery, PIECES to be much much more than your cheap HALLOWEEN imitator.

The gore comes thick and fast in this crazy film, with buckets of the red stuff splashing all over the screen. From knifes to chainsaws and of course the waterbed death which has rightfully engraved its mark on the slasher genre. But that's not all, amid the gut-wrenching violence we're bombared with unbelievably ridiculous scenes that are bound to make even the most hardened of horror fans laugh out loud at how silly it all is. From a woman so stupid she has no fear whatsoever when sharing a lift with a masked man holding a roaring chainsaw (despite knowing there's a chainsaw killer on the loose) until its too late, to a tennis match thats bound to leave you in stiches and of course the incredible screaming "B*stard!" scene. This is a cult fan's dream come true!

If that's not enough, we're also treated to a great cast too. Consisting of such names as Chistopher George from zombie classic CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, Paul Smith perhaps best known for MIDNIGHT EXPRESS and Bluto in POPEYE and a whole load more.

This DVD comes compelete with some great special features too including introduction, a commentary and two featurettes/interviews.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad chop suey? 28 Mar 2011
By Mark G.
Format:DVD
Boston 1942.
A young boy building a naked lady jigsaw puzzle, gets told off by his mother for owning such filth and so he chops her up with an axe. Now I'm not condoning matricide but that woman is getting no sympathy from me. I was almost cheering him on.
Anyhow, the police arrive and find mum all chopped up and little Timmy hiding in the closet crying. They don't suspect the teary eyed child and so he gets away with his crime.

40 years later.
A young girl relaxing in her garden gets beheaded by chainsaw. But, before that, we see a skateboarding girl crash into a mirror for no obvious or plot related reason. Why? No idea, but it's not the most random thing in this film by a long way, but I'll get to that shortly.

Someone on the university campus is killing young girls and removing the body parts, but who?
We see gloved hands building the self same naked lady puzzle from before, only this time in stages. So once the head is built it's time for a bit of decapitation and then remove the head for your own collection. And so on with chest, arms etc.

This movie most definitely falls into the 'so bad it's good' category.
Never mind the terrible acting, the plot alone is so inconsistent and full of holes that it's like an interdimensional swiss cheese.

Let's take the charcter of Willard the gardener as an example. He's a suspect, after all he has chainsaw access and a squint. Early on it is established that he is only on campus for a few weeks and not long after he is found near a corpse, holding a chainsaw. He is then arrested then forgotten about as the police carry on investigating as if they haven't caught anyone.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty crappy 80's horror, with some enjoyable gore
With a title such as Pieces, you know what to expect from an 80's horror film such as this. Low-budget, bad acting, cheesy dialogue, and lots of gore. Read more
