Pieces (1982)

Time to continue venturing into the Cult Horror Collection. Tonight’s entry was the chainsaw massacre flick,Pieces.

Plot / While playing with a puzzle, a teenager is tormented by his mother and cracks, killing her by severing body with an ax. Forty years later, in a university campus in Boston, a serial killer kills young women and severs their bodies in parts, stealing body pieces from each student. Lt. Bracken makes a deal with the dean of the campus, and infiltrates the agent Mary Riggs as if she was a tennis teacher and together with the student Kendall, they try to find the identity of the killer.

This is one of the funniest slasher flicks I have ever seen. Yes, the dialogue is terrible, the acting is only a step up and the effects and direction are about as bad, but there is a lot of blood and enough eye candy to keep things entertaining. Do not get me wrong, the story is flawed and the movie is bad, very bad. However, there are some interesting kills and the ending is a treat. In all, a must-see for anyone that loves seedy Euro-horror in all its untainted, trashy form.
