"Pieces" is an hilarious Italian/Spanish slasher film that has been tough to find before the guys at FILM 2000 releasded this DVD.

Although far from being a masterpiece of the horror genre, it is not surprising that this movie still has a certain cut following. It is an unintentionally funny piece of trash. The film opens with a little boy chopping up his mother after being punished for assembling a jigsaw puzzle of a pin-up girl. As is to be expected, he grows up to be a serial killer who just has to stalk female students on a university campus.

Badly dubbed (at least half of the actors spoke their lines in Spanish), with unbelievably cheap looking opening titles that look like they have been stolen from some student film, "Pieces" manages to deliver more than a few unintentional laughs. In it you'll find one of the most hilarious 2oh, I accidentally bumped into my friend" fake scare scenes of all time. This Italian-Spanish co-production also features a lot of cheesy gore effects, which nevertheless managed to garner the film an X rating when it first came out in the US. Well, there are a couple of nude scenes...

It is hard to pick what the most laughable scene or character is, because this film boasts so many. My personal favorite is the guy who plays the gardener. He looks like Bud Spencer's demented cousin, and instead of being scary (he is one of the suspects) he comes across as plain weird. Then, one of the investigators going undercover is a tennis champ(!) who just happens to have a desk job at the police station. In one of the wackiest scenes the killer walks into an elevator after one of his female victims with a chainsaw hidden behind his back! And there are quite a number of scenes like this.

Who is killing a bevy of nubile female students on a Boston Campus? Is it sinister Anatomy Professor Arthur Brown(Jack Taylor)? Or maybe it's twitchy,hulking ball of aggression Willard(Paul Smith)the college gardener? Could it be the suave, evasive college Dean(Edmund Purdom)? Detective Bracken(Christopher George), Tennis champ Mary Ragg(Lynda Day George) and college lothario Kendall James(Ian Sera) team up to investigate the chainsaw slayings. What our sleuths don't know is that the viewers witnessed in a pre-credits sequence how a young boy cuts his mother into pieces following an arguement over a pornographic jigsaw puzzle. Clear now?
This super sleazy slasher cum giallo contains the following ingredients. Bad dubbing(the film is an American/Spanish co-production),bad acting(Paul Smith is hilarious!),a seductive synth score, smoking hot red herrings, gratuitous nudity(unusually both male and female),gore-a-plenty and a ridiculous ending. In other words it's completely irresistable. I'm probably more forgiving because it really is an artifact of the 80's, and if it had been made now I would probably be far more critical. Best enjoyed if the plot isn't analysed too closely, as its full of gaping holes, and in the company of other equally inebriated horror junkies. Edmund Purdom would team up again with producer Dick Randall to make the equally sleazy antidote to the festive season 'Don't Open Till Christmas'. Director Simon would later be responsible for the great horror 'Slugs-The Movie'.
There are no extras as such on this release, only the obligatory chapter menu and trailers. Picture and sound quality average at best

I would say Pieces is slightly above average for a slasher film. The story starts off with a kid who kills his mother for taking away his personal favorite stash and forty years later the killer is killing again and joins body parts together like a puzzle. He uses a chainsaw and cuts peoples limbs off and collects and joins them (I guess thats why its called Pieces) Meanwhile the police hire a private decteive to track the killer down.
I would say the acting is standard and the DVD itself is not bad quality. Quite clearly video quality but it doesnt really bother me so hopefully it wont bother you either. It has a few extras as well.
The gore in Pieces is quite strong. It contains a woman getting stabbed to death plus a knife going through the back of a womans head. An arm gets sawed off and a woman gets sawed in half so yes the gore is quite strong.
The Film 2000 UK release is fully uncut so thats a positive thing about it. If your a fan of gory slasher films with some good music and twists then I recomend this. Its a good addition to your horror collection.

Format: DVD
At last one of the best 80's slasher films is given a decent release. Grindhouse have done a superb job of releasing Pieces uncut (most of the other dvd releases are cut). The print is excellent with hardly any blemishes and is presented in 1.85 widescreen. The dvd is region 0 coded so you shouldn't need a multi region player to player it. This two disk set is packed with special features which include interviews with Paul Smith who play Willard and director Juan Piquer, a stills gallary, the original Spanish score and lots more.

The plot is very simple - a killer is stalking a college and bumping off various students. The kills are very graphic and are usually done with a chainsaw. There are no annoying CGI effects which seem to dominate recent horror films. The film stars many genre favorites including Edward Purdom (Don't Open Till Christmas), Linda Day George (Mission Impossible) and her husband in real life Christopher George (City Of The Living Dead).

Pieces was released at the height of the "splatter era" which ran from 1978 to 1983 when everyone was making slasher films. There were alot of pritty awful "slasher" films made during this period - but Pieces stands out as one of the best.
