1982 classic splatter nasty: 'Pieces' 2-Disc (10/28)

Now if you've seen this, you know this is one of those 80's splatter flicks, that was nasty, gory as fuck, silly, over the top and just lurid well come the 28th of October, a new 2-disc anamorphic version of this film is getting released from Grindhouse Releasing - ewwww, I can't wait.

Pieces

yes, it has been a long time coming, the prior region 1 release of this looked like it fell through a shredder - the true 'grindhouse' experience: the shittiest looking print ever.

subtle acting at it's best



double bill this with 'Bloody Moon' and you'd have a grand time.

Oh yeah, I'm getting it and they're also re-releasing The Beyond the same day.
Grindhouse link:

Special audio by The Vine Theater Hollywood Experience, I,m guessing a MST3K type commentary.

Why is this 2 discs? They don't even have many features.

Vine Theater is an actual old theater in Hollywood, which Grindhouse would occassionally take over for a night and show some, well, grindhouse type fare. I'm guessing this track will be more like the audience reaction track on PLANET TERROR. Except this one might actually be interesting, as the Vine gets a pretty vocal crowd.

Exactly. I bet half the two disc special editions out there could fit everything on one disc, but people will pay more for multiple discs.

All over this one. I saw it on a double bill with Torso earlier this year. Tons of fun.

Nice review, Ian. Can't wait for this puppy to come out. I've had the "4 Movies Blood Bath" for several years now. Soon, I will have a decent copy to watch.

I'm just seeing this news for the first time. I don't mess much with horror movies, but I fondly recall this one. When my best friend and I were in eighth grade, we somehow managed to get his mom to rent this for us one Friday night. Lots of stupid over-the-top violence and what we all came for: gratuitous nudity.

What a wonderful horrible movie. One of my favorite scenes:



So out of left field. Love the stolen zombie music at the top. And what University has a Professor of Kung Fu?

Fun part of buying this will be the look on the cashier's face when she sees the cover.
