Review: "Pieces" (1982) UK Dual Format Special Edition From Arrow

4 April 2017 6:31 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Darren Allison

Pieces” (Mil Gritos Tiene La Noche) 1982 Directed by Juan Piquer Simón, Starring Jack Taylor, Christopher George, Lynda Day George, Frank Braña and Paul Smith. Arrow 3 disc Blu-ray, DVD and CD.

Arrow continue to satisfy our hunger for classic slasher movies with their latest release "Pieces" (1982), a classic slice of sickening nostalgia which emerged during the height of the video nasty era.

A Boston college campus is being terrorised by a black-clad maniac who collects body parts from his unfortunate co-ed victims. As the corpses (and red herrings) begin to pile up, can Professor Brown (genre veteran Jack Taylor) unmask the murderer before his morbid puzzle is complete?

Fans of the genre should be incredibly pleased with the treatment given to this three disc collector’s edition. Let’s be clear from the outset, “Pieces” is not the best directed movie you’ll ever see. Director Juan Piquer Simón, »

‘Pieces’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

27 March 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Christopher George, Lynda Day George, Frank Brana, Edmund Purdom, Ian Sera, Paul L. Smith, Jack Taylor, Gerard Tichy, May Heatherly | Written by Dick Randall, Roberto Loyola | Directed by Juan Piquer Simón

Pieces is one of those movies that horror fans instantly fall in love with. While some would write it off as just another bad movie, others will love those moments of unintentional humour, especially from the dubbed version. This is what makes the Arrow Video Pieces: Limited Edition release on Blu-ray so much fun.

When a murderer stars killing off female students on a Boston college campus, the bodies soon start piling up. With body parts missing it seems that the killer is putting forming an interesting puzzle, but can they be stopped before they complete their work?

With a killer that is straight out of the Giallo genre, but a chainsaw that brings even more gore, »

Blu-ray Review – Pieces (1982)

27 March 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pieces, 1982.

Directed by Juan Piquer Simón.

Starring Christopher George, Lynda Day George, Jack Taylor, Frank Braña, Edmund Purdom, Paul Smith, and Ian Sera.

Synopsis:

A killer stalks a college campus looking for victims so he can use their body parts to make a human jigsaw.

One of the better 1980s slasher movies to not get a sequel (although there is still time), Pieces is a Spanish production that followed in the wake of Friday the 13th, The Burning, My Bloody Valentine, et al but became notorious amongst savvy genre audiences for being more gruesome, bloody and downright sleazy than those previous movies. Naturally, the fully uncut version didn’t appear until relatively recently – within the last decade, in fact – and despite putting it out on DVD back in 2011, the wizards at Arrow Video have now unleashed the film on a limited edition Blu-ray, and if that wasn’t enough to »

Press Gang's most mind-blowing episodes

5 February 2017 3:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Robin Bell Feb 6, 2017

A salute to some of the brilliant and hard-hitting episodes in Steven Moffat's first TV series, the evergreen Press Gang...

Before River Song, Trenzalore and his take on The Doctor, before Sherlock fell off a building and provided multiple explanations, before James Nesbitt flipped out in a zoo in Jekyll, before Coupling, Joking Apart and Chalk, maybe even before he was known as The Moff, before all that came the quite brilliant Press Gang. Steven Moffat's first TV series, which he wrote all 42 episodes of, was based on an idea by his father, Bill Moffat. At its centre it had a brilliant will they/won't they relationship, and the epitome of a strong female character in Lynda Day. After 5 series it ended, but left behind so many quality episodes, which in trying to choose the stand out mind-blowers has been nigh on impossible. But for jolting, »
