Quotes

Bill Chrushank: As I sit here today, the only survivor to Dr. Webb's experiments; I feel somewhat resigned. The questions I've been asking are quite simply beyond my reach. Where does evil live, is evil in the flesh? If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it, does it make a sound? Inquiring minds want to know and life goes on. I do know that evil does not live in my arm because since Charlie has died I've experienced none of the violent tendencies the arm initially manifested. I've adjusted ...

Alternate Versions

Two scenes were heavily cut in order to avoid an NC-17 rating from the MPAA:
  • The car crash sequence was cut back by almost 40 seconds. Deleted was a backwards tracking shot from Jeff Fahey on the road to his twitching, severed arm on the ground. He stares at it in horror until it's splattered by a truck, and he passes out.
  • The surgery scene a few minutes afterwards was cut by well over a minute, deleting several shots of Jeff Fahey's exposed stump/wound, and several seconds of the bloody, twitching donor arm on a medical table.

Not as bad as I thought.
17 November 1998 | by Peach-2See all my reviews

Body Parts wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It turned out to be pretty entertaining and had a few moments that made me jump out of my seat. I believe the director, Eric Red, will one day be a more popular film-maker. He does a good job and creates some genuine tension.
