An utter masterwork of illogic.
Fans of the genre will find much to enjoy in this knowingly silly exercise in day-glo splatter.
If all this sounds like standard giallo/slasher fare... in fact Simón constructs his film in much the way that the killer recreates his puzzle: taking a bit from here, a bit from there, & stitching all these disparate pieces into a monstrous hybrid.
There's little to "get"--just lots of unrestrained madness to relish.
As an example of sexist, racist sleaze, Pieces is an inadvertently amusing relic of early '80s grindhouse.
Armed with perhaps two of the funniest, most demented, and rapid fire twists in possibly all of film history!
It's exactly what you think it is!
The scariest thing is the Eighties score
As a mystery-thriller, the scenario is ridiculous to the point of being amateurish, but...you just can't look away.
Terrible movie. And a definite must-see. Plus the DVD is surprisingly rich and moist.
In the slasher genre, this is as bad as they come.
Virtually every aspect of Pieces is inept, aside from moments of gore - which are admittedly quite spectacular.
You do not have to go to Texas for a chainsaw massacre. From the producer of Last House on The Left and Friday the 13th comes the sickest and most violent of ll th 80's slasher movies. A psychopathic killer collects body parts from his nubile co-ed victims to create the likeness of his mother who he savagely murdered with an axe when he was ten years old.
Mil Gritos Tiene La Noche also known as Pieces is one of my favourites slasher films of all time...it has chainsaw violence, absurd scenes, nudity, and a bizarre ending. Oh and also has the best tagline "Pieces..it's exactly what you think it is". The best chainsaw flick since the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
When the film begins, with the mother yelling insanely at the young boy for doing a puzzle of a nude girl, you expect a dull Psycho copycat movie, and then he brings in an axe and hacks her to pieces. There is a lot of fantastic gore in this movie. Maybe the characters and dialogue aren't so great, but it makes you laugh, so the movie isn't just gore. I really enjoyed this, and I recommend it to grindhouse and foreign horror fans.
Gory ridiculous fun! Some parts are just hilariously bad, but that all adds to the fun-factor. The murders are really quite graphic so gorehounds will definitely be satisfied with what is shown. A guilty pleasure for many out there - go see it for yourself!
Really bad. some of the most unbelievable dialogue you'll hear in a dumb slasher film.
"The most beautiful thing in this world is smoking pot and fucking on a water bed, man!"
"Oh dear god, what a mess! something obviously got butchered here.... well, i guess we better search the place!"
"Ken, buddy, where have you been? i've been lookin' all oooover! lookin' ALL. OVER."
"While we were trying to figure out how to stop that awful sound, the laughing bastard was killing her! and he was laughing at us. the bastard. BAS-TARD... BASTARD!! BAAASTAAARDD!!!"
"C'mon, Mary, try to walk. here, i'll help ya. thats it, thats it. now the other foot. soon you'll be ready for the marathon!"
