You don't have to go to Texas for a chainsaw massacre! 

"Pieces is one scary flick that changed 42nd Street forever." - Rick Sullivan, Gore Gazette


"It has everything you could possibly want, by the bucketful.  Full-on chainsaw violence, absurd amounts of nudity, and the greatest ending in horror history.  A masterpiece of early '80s sleaze." - Eli Roth, director, Cabin Fever


"The best chainsaw flick since the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre." - Joe Bob Briggs


"Pieces ultimately registers as a series of blunt shocks rather than broken taboos.  It was one of the few movies at the time that silenced the most raucous grindhouse audiences.  You could hear a pin drop in the theater." - Bill Landis & Michelle Clifford, Sleazoid Express: A Mind-Twisting Tour Through the Grindhouse Cinema of Times Square!


"The ending is lured even by slasher epic standards." - Scott Cain, The Atlanta Journal


"Wonderfully sleazy Spanish slasher flick from the 'golden age' of the early 80s." - Ken Kish, Video Wasteland: Rental, Reference and Review Guide

A psychopathic killer stalks a Boston campus, brutally slaughtering nubile young college co-eds, collecting body parts from each victim to create the likeness of his mother who he savagely murdered with an axe when he was ten years old!  Pieces is the sickest and most violent of the early 80's slasher movies with enough splatter and sleaze to shock the most jaded horror fan.
