Back of the box...
“The year is 1941. A young boy is assembling a jigsaw puzzle of a nude woman, when his mother enters in a rage and tells him to throw the puzzle out. Instead he returns with an ax and hacks his mother to death, tricking the police into believing a maniac had killed her.
Forty years later at a Boston college, the terror really begins. A chainsaw-wielding madman is roaming the campus collecting pieces of beautiful co-eds for a ghastly human puzzle he is assembling—and the police haven’t a clue to the crazed killer’s identity.
Christopher George (Mortuary) stars in this horrifying adventure into madness, hysteria and bone-chilling brutality.”

“Pieces. . . It’s exactly what you think it is!” Possibly one of the best taglines ever, and it sums up the movie perfectly. This Spanish made slasher film—set in Boston but shot in Spain—is the story of a man who stalks women on a college campus, chopping them up with a chainsaw for his grotesque master plan. Pieces is hilarious in that special, unintentional way that 80’s slasher films are so well known for. The music is awesome, the characters and kills are a lot of fun and there are some great gore effects including a scene that uses a pig’s carcass to simulate a woman being sliced through the waist with a chainsaw. We had a hard time picking the best clips for our Instagram account (@thepopcornomicon) since all the kills happen to topless women, but maybe that’s a thing you’re into?
