Scott Weinberg

A rather sickening marathon strung together by the flimsiest of subplots and populated exclusively by blood-soaked strippers.

...amateurish and flat-out irredeemable...

Aspires to be a highly stylized exploration of the mind of a serial killer, but it's nothing more than a gory, bloodsoaked snuff film, reveling in its own shock value as women are stabbed, strangled, raped and mutilated.

The director Nick Palumbo is determined to shock through a fictional German-born serial killer, who makes his mission clear with every thrust of knife blade and pelvis.

The lowest form of cinematic life, a movie so utterly degenerate it makes you wish that indie filmmakers had to prove a basic standard of decency in order to buy a camera.

Pic's nastiness is so insistent, one-dimensional and excessive it risks self-parody.

Murder Set-Pieces is recommended for the fan of unvarnished exploitation grue; for those needing a little more style with the substance, dig deeper into your Argento collection.

Palumbo has managed to take the best pieces of horror, thriller, and truth and patch them together in a tirade of horrific and disturbing imagery.

An interesting effort to make the ultimate horror movie by imitating modern classics of the genre in a systematic way.
