Fans of the genre will find much to enjoy in this knowingly silly exercise in day-glo splatter.

A contender for the greatest 80's slasher movie. This one is just flat out brilliant in its awfulness.

Gory ridiculous fun! Some parts are just hilariously bad, but that all adds to the fun-factor. The murders are really quite graphic so gorehounds will… More

Pieces is truly a grisly delightful horror film. A depraved film from start to finish this film doesn't have any artistic value whatsoever. But whatever it… More
