Overview

With a tagline that reads, "You don't have to go to Texas for a chainsaw massacre," this Spanish-Italian entry into slasher film territory went on to achieve a dubious distinction as one of the most tasteless films ever produced. The bloodshed opens in 1942 with a scene of a little boy axing his mother after her discovery of him piecing together a puzzle of a nude girl. Cut to 42 years later and the little ax-man has moved on to chainsaws as he begins buzzing coeds on the campus of a New England college. Police Lieutenant Bracken (Christopher George) and his partner arrive to investigate. They find a trail of dismembered bodies that happen to be missing some parts and a group of suspects including a shady dean of students (Edmund Purdom), an anatomy professor (Jack Taylor), and a monstrous caretaker (Paul Smith). Led by beautiful undercover cop Mary Riggs (Lynda Day-George) and student-stud Kendall (Ian Sera), the investigation leads everyone to the killer, who has just finished adding the final pieces to his human jigsaw puzzle. ~ Patrick Legare

I'm a little shocked at the other review. I do not yet own the Blu Ray edition, however, I strive too. I do have my DVD copy and hold this film on the higher end of bad movies. The direction is ridiculous, the story makes little sense and is so full of holes you can drive a truck through but what is great in this bloody piece of history is scene after scene of memorable and sometimes quotable low budget charm. I not only recommend this to bad movie lovers, but invite friends to share the experience. You'll also find the answer to "the greatest thing in the world".

Normally, I like gross movies, or dumb movies, or low-budget movies, of which PIECES is all three. But this one was just plain awful. Skip it.
