If ever there was a film that Bible-thumping, God-fearing parents would want their children to avoid, its Pieces. Pieces is eighty-five minutes of gratuitous nudity, graphic violence, and brutal gore, and yet somehow it managed to avoid the infamous "Video Nasties" list in Britain. It is what most non-horror fans probably imagine Texas Chainsaw Massacre is like, but they couldnt be more wrong. Sure, the chainsaw maulings are among the most bloody and memorable in the genre, but the truth of the matter is that the filmmaking and pacing are both abysmal. In terms of plotting and character development, the film couldnt be more bland and formulaic, and really doesnt leave the audience with a single lead character to carry them through the film. With the exception of genre favorite Christopher George, the acting ranges from uninspired to laughable, winning both the "Most Random Ninja" and "Most Unnecessarily Long Scream" awards in Horror. Still, the friggin awesome gore makes this one a must-see for all genre fans. Nothing says Grindhouse better than Pieces! A chainsaw wielding maniac is offing co-eds and harvesting their body parts for a sadistic human jigsaw puzzle in this 80s classic.
