Grindhouse Releasing’s New Pieces Blu-ray Is One of the Year’s Best Home Video Titles

8 March 2016 8:30 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Juan Piquer Simon‘s classic 1982 slasher Pieces has finally landed on Blu-ray, and the result is well worth the wait. Grindhouse Releasing has packed their release with all kinds of love and affection from the beautiful picture presentation to a bevy of special features and extras. I was too slow to order and missed being one of the lucky 3000 to nab a copy that comes with a replica of the infamous nudie puzzle featured in the film’s opening, but even without that extra this is still one of the best home video releases of the year so far. Keep reading for a look at the movie (from my earlier review) and at the new Blu-ray release below. The Movie: It’s 1942, and a young boy sits on the floor of his bedroom innocently putting together a puzzle featuring a picture of a fully nude woman. He’s assembling it with the detached focus of someone whose »

Now On Blu-ray: Jp Simon's Pieces On Blu Looks Better Than Could Have Been Imagined

1 March 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

One of my first DVD reviews here at TwitchFilm was for the Arrow Video DVD release of Juan Piquer Simon's Pieces. At the time I was a virgin to the wonder of this incredibly bizarre and impossibly entertaining piece of Spanish gore-trash, but over the last five years I've returned to Pieces more than once. When it was announced that the film would be receiving a Blu-ray release from underground home video heroes Grindhouse Releasing, I was beyond excited, and now that I have the disc in hand and I've spent hours combing through its myriad bonus features and easter eggs, I can say like the other critics before me that this is clearly the definitive release of the film, and that it is a...

Revoltin’ Reviews: Pieces, The Mutilator, and The Vincent Price Collection III

12 February 2016 11:25 AM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

This one’s going to be a cake walk, creeps: two vintage 80s slasher flicks and some Vincent Price. Sometimes ancient talismans procured in questionable eBay lots really do work as advertised!

Pieces

•             Release Date: Available March 1st on Special edition Blu-ray (2 Blu-rays + CD)

•             Written By: Dick Randall, Joe D’Amato

•             Directed By: Juan Piquer Simón

•             Starring: Christopher George, Lynda Day George, Frank Braña, Paul L. Smith

Pieces had a weird effect on me when I first saw it. I remember thinkin’ it was one of the greatest slasher films I’d e’er slapped my eerie eyeballs upon, as it pretty much had everything that makes the genre so outrageous, only amped up to the nth degree. I also remember thinkin’ “Man, I need to own this film right away; it’s the bat’s knees!” I then sat down, ate a slice of pizza (maybe it was a sandwich… »

Very few films hit my blood soaked heart as hard as Juan Piquer Simón’s slasher classic, Pieces. It’s such an excellent film, one that every horror fan should experience at least once in their lifetime. Thanks to the always kick-ass gang at Grindhouse Releasing, horror fans who have been aching for a special edition of the 1982 gorefest can now celebrate, with the announcement of an epic March 1st release of a 3-Disc collector’s edition of the film, complete with a massive list of special features, as well as a limited edition puzzle that comes along with the first 3,000 copies of the film (fans buying the film from DiabolikDVD will also receive the film on February 23rd, earlier than those who purchase it from other sites/stores).
