Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As an example of sexist, racist sleaze, Pieces is an inadvertently amusing relic of early '80s grindhouse."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"The scariest thing is the Eighties score"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"In the slasher genre, this is as bad as they come."
‑ Gerry Shamray, Your Movies (cleveland.com)
"Armed with perhaps two of the funniest, most demented, and rapid fire twists in possibly all of film history!"
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"As a mystery-thriller, the scenario is ridiculous to the point of being amateurish, but...you just can't look away."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"Virtually every aspect of Pieces is inept, aside from moments of gore - which are admittedly quite spectacular."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It's exactly what you think it is!"
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Terrible movie. And a definite must-see. Plus the DVD is surprisingly rich and moist."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
