    As an eighties slasher movie, Pieces really delivers everything you could want. The notorious hilarity is the real entertainment factor, along with the absurd amount of gore and ample nudity. It might be a little long, but other than that, genuine entertainment.

    An amazing end to a very inventive slasher film.

    Whodunit-style slasher with a few really well-executed stalk-and-kill sequences and not much else. There's an interesting psychosexual element to the killer's motivation that the filmmakers sadly don't go anywhere with.

    I had an impromptu Joe D'Amato double feature of re-watches last night, as he's given a writer's credit on Pieces alongside grimy-horror producer Dick Randall and the Spanish director of Pieces, Juan Piquer Simón, who is maybe slightly more recognized as the director of the '80s, slimy-creature feature Slugs, or even still, the man responsible for the movie in one of my favorite episodes of MST3K - Pod People (aka Extra Terrestrial Visitors).

    It had been so long since I'd…

    Slasher cinema has never been about original ideas, about plots or characters that make sense. Slasher cinema is without a doubt the bottom of the barrel of horror movies. The blueprint for it was pretty much perfected by the first 2 or 3 movies that came out with the idea of just focusing on the kills and disregarding everything else. Almost after Bava's Bay of Blood and Carpenter's Halloween the genre had already displayed all it's ideas. The only thing…

    Emerging from the Euro-horror/exploitation scene of the early-1980's, Pieces is a campy, gory and memorable Spanish chainsaw massacre. Set on an "American" college campus, the female students are quickly becoming victims to a chainsaw-wielding killer hacking off body parts to-and-fro. Pieces is a fitting title given the plot but also the rather slap-dash and inconsistent plot that jumps from one minute to another across different moods and ideas. Horror? Yes. Exploitation? Yes. Comedy? Maybe...but it's impossible to tell how far…

    It didn't really fulfill my nostalgic expectations, but still ...
    Really gory and a great twist in the end.

    Beyond ridicolous slasher movie with a big overdose of gore and some of the most ridiculous dialogues dubbed although the actors are all english-speaking. There is really no mystery here as you can probably guess who the killer is half hour in the movie and the reason why he cuts pieces of girls is also laughable to say the least. The last scene deserves a star by itself but I am not gonna spoil it for you

    Worth it for the crotch shredding at the end.

    I cannot in good conscience pretend for one moment that this is anything other than a sloppily constructed excuse to slice up a lot of bodies and splash a lot of fake blood toward the camera-- That said, man, is it ever fun in its zaniness, right up to the very memorable final shot.
