8/10


Supercheesy and unintentionally hilarious but absolutely brilliant slasher classic.
Horrible plot? Dreadful dialogue? Lame cast? Characters that constantly doing illogical and pointless things? Nevermind! 'Pieces' has some great tension, wonderful atmosphere, an insane amount of gore (believe me, it is that gory all the time!) and some absolutely priceless moments you'll never ever forget (the kung-fu teacher that ate bad chop suey and therefore kicks people at night, the undercover cop who is also a tennis champion and loves to scream the word 'Bastard', the boy who hacks his mother to pieces because she discovered his porn mags, etc. etc. etc.).

A damn terrific cheese-masterpiece :-)

    A very rare feet for a movie to be fun and gory both. the ending is FABULOUS! Always a neat twist and turn. The kills were great, and
