Filmmaker Nick Palumbo on Fangoria Radio AGAIN this Friday!!
FOR THE THIRD TIME IN AS MANY WEEKS, controversial cult filmmaker Nick Palumbo will be LIVE on the Sirius Satellite Radio Network this Friday, February 2nd, 2007 at 8:30 p.m PST!!!
The ORIGINAL Splat Packer himself will be discussing Dee Snider's slanderous charges of anti-Semitism and child endangerment, ....and….. Dee Snider, Debbie Rochon and Tony Timpone will pose the question: Has director Nick Palumbo created a film that has gone past the Supreme Court's legal definition of obscenity??
The debate will also include your PHONE CALLS about the most infamous Grand-Guignol horror film in cinematic history: "MURDER-SET-PIECES".
"MURDER-SET-PIECES"--- has sent shockwaves throughout the film world for being the first 35mm narrative film in history BANNED from film labs and horror film festivals.
"MURDER-SET-PIECES"---the shot on beautiful 35mm film renowned the world over for its savagely satanic vision of America—--and, at a budget of $2.2 million dollars, the most expensive independent horror film ever made.
The seamy streets of Las Vegas pulsate with neon decadence and tremble under the horsepower of the "Photographer's" Hemi-Powered Muscle car.
The film features a misogynistic fashion photographer, (with a NAZI heritage) whose vocation is murder.
The viewer is assaulted with visceral images: Graphically realistic child murder, sadistic rape scenes, cruel and unusual torture, pre-pubescent stalking, necrophilia, cannibalism, gratuitous full-frontal nudity of beautiful teen-age strippers and prostitutes, a sickening scene of severed-head fellatio--including the money shot, one of kind original 35mm 9/11 footage, and a hauntingly amazing sequence featuring a bloody, crying, hysterical toddler, clutching her real Mother's savaged corpse---all shot on glorious 35mm film.

"4 out of 4 Stars"---For slasher film fans, this is the pot o' gold at the end of a blood-stained rainbow. The most erotically charged, aggressively deranged, unabashedly brutal American horror film EVER made. The perfect date movie--if your date happens to be Charles Manson. An instant--deeply twisted---classic".
"For his second effort, the director Nick Palumbo erupts onto the cinematic scene with a high-anxiety spectacle that induces aneurysms in guardians of decency. Palumbo has made his own apoplectic fit of a movie in which blood cascades down faces and torsos, wherever fists, blades, bullets and, yes, a chain-saw blade have broken the skin. Palumbo's monstrous tableaus might just provoke cries for restrictions in art, even among staunch defenders of artistic freedom".
The New York Times
"Aptly titled "Murder-Set-Pieces," writer-helmer Nick Palumbo's second feature offers over-the-top horror imagery as a Las Vegas serial killer dispatches one victim after another, the pic distinguishes itself via sheer extremity of gore, sadism and tastelessness".
"The Most Graphic Horror Film Ever Commited to Celuloid".
"The disturbing "Murder-Set-Pieces" is a highly stylized exploration of the mind of a serial killer, a gory, bloodsoaked snuff film, reveling in its own shock value as women are stabbed, strangled, raped and mutilated in every conceivable — and a few inconceivable — ways".
The New York Post
"Interesting to speculate what scene it may have been about Nick Palumbo's glitzy simulated snuff movie, glued together by the story of a 12-year-old girl's developing aversion to her big sister's beefy, glowering stiff of a neo-Nazi fashion-photographer boyfriend (Sven Garrett), that led three Hollywood labs to reject it for processing. A first in the HISTORY of motion pictures".
Los Angeles Weekly
"Murder-Set-Pieces" is about to blow everyone's minds. It's incredibly good. It's extremely well made. It's directed impeccably, and it's definitely, no holds barred, the most brutal and graphic film I've ever seen (that includes porn and all horror films. "Murder-Set-Pieces" is the serial killer film to end all serial killer films".
"3 out of 4 Stars"---An interesting effort to make the ultimate horror movie by imitating modern classics of the genre in a systematic way, putting actors from the original "Texas Chain Saw Massacre" into the cast for good measure. Be warned that the results are in aggressively awful taste from beginning to end, though".
The Christian Science Monitor
"Director Nick Palumbo displays visual brilliance reminiscent of the best works of Dario Argento".
"An Instant Classic".
Ultra Violent Magazine
"Murder-Set-Pieces" is a sick, repellent, and ultimately offensive movie".
"Amazingly, "Murder-Set-Pieces" is one of those rare films that actually lives up to the hype. It's brutal, graphic, shocking, unsettling, and upsetting – and I loved every minute of it. Ultimately, "M-S-P" is an amazing film that will offend and disturb almost everyone who manages to view it".
"Nick Palumbo's exploitive, brilliant "Murder-Set-Pieces", a film primed to become a lightning rod for controversy and misdirected rage by the pious right and the spineless left. The film is a truly pure cinematic expression of violent sexual rage. "Murder-Set-Pieces", perhaps the greatest serial killer film ever made, manages to be one thing, while also commenting on that one thing, at the same time. It is a revolutionary, important, haunting work".
The Film Journal.com
"Nick Palumbo has taken the horror film to a place never before seen in history".
William Lustig---legendary director of director of "Maniac"(1980).
"Murder-Set-Pieces" is the real deal. It's more than just a GREAT film; it's pure poetry".
Roger Watkins----legendary director of the "The Last House on Dead End Street"(1972)
"Murder-Set-Pieces" beats out "The Devil's Reject's, "Land of the Dead, "High Tension" and "Wolf Creek" as the BEST horror film of 2005!
