Please update the information you have regarding this exceptional, unique slasher film. Aristide Massaccesi (aka Joe D'Amato) had absolutely nothing to do with this picture. This is a rumor that has been floating around the internet for quite a long time now, based on the erroneous assumption that John Shadow is yet another in the long line of pseudonyms Massaccesi used during his long career. While I agree that the name seems almost too awesome to be true...it is. British filmmaker and rock musician John Shadow was once married to Swedish beauty queen Ewa Aulin and was indeed a real person. Pieces is one of his three known film credits, let's give credit only where it is due.
The ridiculously hard to catch killer, lugging an ENORMOUS chainsaw around a college, casually carving up girls to collect whatever pieces he needs for a pet project - this film is a lot of fun and well worth a look for the awful dubbing and dialog alone.
