Movie Review: "Pieces" (1982)

Image Source
Movie: "Pieces"
Director: Juan Piquer Simon
Year: 1982
Rating: UR
Running Time: 1 hour, 29 minutes

A young boy hacks up his mother after she tales away his dirty puzzles. 40 years later, he comes to a college campus and starts murdering random co-eds, taking a body part from each victim in order to make a real human puzzle.

This is a legit grindhouse, complete with the famous grindhouse introduction before the film. This is an exploitation full of nudity, over-the-top gore, girls getting chopped up by chainsaws, and an unknown "whodunit" killer. It's pretty short, but it's well paced with its murders. It's badly looped, but the dialogue is atrociously hilarious, and the gore is pretty cool. Everything in this movie, to be honest, is bad: bad camera work, bad sound, bad acting, bad lighting, and yet it's still fun to watch. Definitely a "must view" for grindhouse fans!

My Rating: 6/10
BigJ's Rating: 7/10
IMDB's Rating: 5.7/10
Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 22%
Do we recommend this movie: Sure, why not?
