Title: PIECES aka Mil gritos tiene la noche (1982)
Label: ARROW VIDEO
Tranfer by: ARROW / (GRINDHOUSE)
Aspect Ratio: 1.66 : 1
Media: Bluray Set / Limited Edition (3 Discs)

Some Thoughts About The Movie (NOT a base for my rating):
Highly enjoyable „Krimi“ with elements lent from black gloved murder movies and slashers. PIECES „is exactly what you think it is“ as the tagline reads. No, it is not. How could it be? Set in Boston, nothing in this whodunnit flick looks like a US genre movie from that period. Indeed PIECES breathes European cinema air through each and every of its celluloid pores. And that is great because PIECES is exactly what you do not think it is. I neither can name it very good nor very bad. PIECES is something in between, what is exactly the reason I like this little Euro-Sleaze-Giallo-Style-Crime-Splatter-Fest. JUAN PIQUER SIMÓNs movie is entertaining. It manages to move audiences mood by using tension, drivel, gore, naked skin and goofy situations and dialogue. The makers had a big pot of ideas and influences. They stuffed that thing, stirred all ingredients, spilled it on the floor and somehow the brew tasted passably. It appears to be partially improvised on set, developed on the fly. Made by people who perhaps never shot a horror movie before and had to think about what a horror movie should contain to work properly. Borrowed Fragments of films like DEEP RED (1975) and THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974) come in mind, to name just two examples. This assumption may sound a bit harsh but I do not mean it in a negative way. Maybe PIECES draws much of its special charm out of this circumstances. The makers try to walk on new territory, sometimes they stumble but in the end they reach their goal.

"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.

Well for £19.99 you do get your moneys worth, ie two discs Blu-ray / DVD, plus a CD with the original soundtrack.

A nice solid box, so no creases down the spine, a nice revisable sleeve, plus a double sided poster, and a 36 page booklet.

But most important is the Blu-ray transfer which looks stunning, and you get loads of bonus features, so well worth upgrading.

I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this movie. This film is 100% giallo. Think of it as a cross between a bad quality 1970s TV detective mystery with a rotten pile of Savini-style slasher gore dispersed throughout. It's truly objectionable, so rank in fact that it should be on the shameless DVD label. It's the sleaziest piece of filth I have seen in a long time.

Everything a giallo fan could hope for is here: the black gloved killer, the beautiful women, the unnecessarily extreme violence and pulsing synthesiser soundtrack etc. If you liked Tenebrae, New york ripper, Bird with the crystal plumage or any of that Italian horror () you'll adore this. This is much more violent and disgusting than any of them. Brimful with bad acting, incoherent dialogue and a laugh-out-loud script. It's even dubbed!

So to sum it up then, this is a wretched film. It's enough to drive you to God.

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.
