    It sounds weird to call a gory, over-the-top misogynist Spanish slasher film "lovable," but that's exactly what this slice of giddy, blood-sprayed stupidity is. Juan Piquer Simón helmed this drive-in favorite, which rolled out unrated in the '80s and went on to stun an entire generation on VHS. Apart from the wildly quotable dialogue, it's an orgy of old school gore effects, brain-dead characters, and cool synth music pilfered from earlier Italian horror films, plus the great Paul L. Smith (Bluto from Popeye) as the world's greatest chainsaw-wielding red herring. I could watch this one again right now.

    This is a film that just needs to be seen. Period. The Room of horror movies, or perhaps a modern, accidental Un Chien Andalu for perverted schizoids. Could be the film that coins the term Anti-Brilliance, or a film in which all the events that take place are pretty much the exact opposite of what would happen anywhere remotely resembling the real world. Seems to have been written by an 8-year-old right after brain surgery and who is just watching…

    I love how this is supposed to take place in Boston, but they make no effort to hide that it's Spain in any way. The best giallo (that's technically not a giallo) ever?

    A chainsaw killer is chopping up co-eds on a college campus, and the most inept cops in film history are trying to stop him. Yup, that's the whole plot in this delightfully sleazy, pseudo-classic grindhouse flick. The acting is negligible, the dialogue is howlingly "WTF," the splatter flows hot and heavy and the ending makes no sense whatsoever. Released in 1983 but it looks like it was made in 1973. Whoever wrote this movie must really hate women, because they…

    Totally worth it for those classic bad-good scenes, but the rest is a treacherous slog.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It was the 80's, it was a different day and age. It was a time when you could smoke a J in the university hall way and a a young perky female student is sexually harass/joke/make him look at her boobs to answer her anatomy question /flirt with your anatomy professor while your friends laugh it off and finish the doob.

    Ahhh it 80's horror week everybody, atleast it is in my social media circle. I'm Following up Final Exam…

    The gloriously joyful stupidity of Pieces can be summed up in the scene where the killer enters an elevator dressed entirely in black while craftily concealing a giant chainsaw behind his back.

    And there are countless other amazing scenes similar to this one scattered throughout its running time.

    This may be the funnest, most deliriously dumb slasher ever made.

    Some of the line readings in this are just inspired, with the dubbing adding to the lack of anything resembling a real person.
