VIDEO: Pieces (1982)

We’re sorry...

This video is no longer available due to the shutdown of

It’s one of Cecil’s favorite slasher films ever, Pieces, starring Christopher and Lynda Day George, “Bruce Le” [sic], and the kid from Pod People tracking down a serial killer who’s dismembering coeds to create a jigsaw puzzle made from body parts. Whoever the killer might be, one thing’s for sure: he’s a real bastard. Bastard!! BASTARD!!

    I saw that S Club 7 movie just based on your recommendation. It was entertaining.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      Awesome! That one is going to be a lot of fun to do. Such silly fluff.

  • Sofie Liv

    that looks like a yukkie film… probably shouldn’t have eaten pizza while watching this review.
    I probably should have learned that by now, I shouldn’t eat while watching any of your reviews :/

    But none the less, great review as always from you, except for the yukkieness I enjoyed it a lot 🙂 

    • bastardjackyll

      It’s a SLASHER film called PIECES, what were you expecting, a romantic comedy?

      • Sofie Liv

         Maybe he thought it was about time for a change of direction and review more movies like Spice-world?

        Cecil reviewing Bridget Jones, and well, just to make him suffer as I an Mendo has been through that shit, lets hand him the next Twilight movie, that would be fun.

        All in all, I am a stupid blond not having learned to not eat while watching Cecils video, my only defence is that I was really really hungry.

        (btw, not all slasher films looks as yukie. And that this look so yuki.. just means it makes a good job out of being an exploration movie.. even remember there’s actually a difference between exploration and dull hollywood slasher.)

        • bastardjackyll

          The word you are looking for is “exploitation”, not “exploration”.

          Maybe you shouldn’t comment on other reviewers and the films that they choose to review? It is kind of rude to their videos and their fans.

          This is Cecil’s show, and this comment board is for his video, whatever “shit” you and Mendo have been through do not matter here.

          Be respectful of your fellow broadcasters.

            It’s ok man, I didn’t take Sofie as badmouthing the show. (she did say she enjoyed it) I know horror isn’t her thing and this movie is a bit gory.

          • Sofie Liv

             What? I am a cecil fan, I highly enjoy his videos and think he is a very talented plus smart video producer and I want to give him tons of morale support and learn from his technics, so.. yeah.

            And, I do actually enjoy the occasional horror movie, but only in a certain genre, I enjoy what I like to call. “Fantastic horror.” building itself around a high concept or a old school operatic story.

            I genuinely like the nightmare on elm-street movies, I love the idea of some-body invading dreams.
            I love stories as Dracula, Frankenstein, Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
            It’s a bit more innocent than this, but I enjoy Gremlins.

            Sorry, I spelled it wrong, but I have actually seen a few exploitation films. (mostly when they exploit what is mentioned above.) I’ve seen Blackula and stuff like that.. so.. yeah.

            I genuinely like Cecils show and.. he is a mate. We are all good mates here at the booth.

        • Cecil_Trachenburg

          You know, I’ve never actually seen Bridget Jones’ Diary. Never really cared for Renee Zellweger outside of Love and a 45 and Empire Records.

          Believe me, I’ve suffered through some shit, it’s just that I chose to do a show that celebrates the movies I enjoy instead of trashing bad ones. I probably would have quit doing this if I had to watch Transformers over and over. With that said, I have had some requests to give a bad movie a good beating. I may do it as a side project some time down the road.

          Oh, and you are right this one is especially gross. I didn’t even show all the gore.

          • Sofie Liv

            I thought Bridget was a boring film, nothing wrong with it, but boring, it’s not campy Spice-world. I was never a chick flick sort of person.

            I can’t exactly say I sat through Transformers tons of times to make that review, had seen it before a good while ago, but yeah..
            And, well, my politic is sort of. “one of for me one for you.” that largely every second movie is some-thing that interests me personally and every second is some-thing I believe people want to me review.
            But looking at my schedule I am moving more and more into the area of just talking about what I want to talk about, so.. yeah. 

            Well, I like your show as it is. It’s nice you really like it so much and can give so much information about the subject 🙂

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

       My next few aren’t horror so feel safe to eat lunch while viewing! 🙂

      Thank you very much ^^

  • FullofQuestions1

    I think I would normally be grossed out by this movie, but it’s been a week where I’ve dissected a shark and a sheep’s eye.

    Good review though!

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      Yikes! Thankfully I never had to dissect anything. While horror movies don’t bother me seeing real stuff dead gives me an unsettled feeling. (I guess that is a good thing, I’m not totally desensitized)


  • MephLord

    Although the Cinema Snob already reviewed this movie, this was another entertaining look at the same material.  It’s tough to find a horror movie that hasn’t been covered to death, but you might want to search out a little gem called Chainsaw Sally.  It’s surprisingly not too bad for being on a very low budget.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      The Snob feels about the same as I do. I love the film because of its absurdities.

      Oh believe me, I have some gems that no one has heard about. Problem is, they don’t get viewed as much as the ones that are more common. I still break them out from time to time (Omega Cop) but usually it is a movie that people have at least heard of. (not neccessarily seen, but at least heard)

      I’ll check out Chainsaw Sally. I remember Gunnar Hansen plugging it way back. It looked good I just missed out on it for whatever reason.

  • Nuclearademan

    Pieces is a terrible movie but I love it, surprised they never made a sequel actually.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      JP had written a sequel in the early 2000s and was having trouble finding someone interested in producing. In 2005 he said he found a producer and was hoping to start working on the film. Shortly thereafter he got sick and then he died in 2011.

      So, sadly, at this point we will most likely see a remake rather than a sequel. 

      • Nuclearademan

         Oh god Eli Roth’s gonna remake Pieces isn’t he? Or worse a Platinum Dunes remake!

  • This makes (in order) Cine-Masochist, Cinema Snob, me and you all having reviewed this movie.  And I think we all have the exact same opinion.  Now we just need to get Fear Fan, Horror Guru and Count Jackula to do the same.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

      It is a horror staple. We are in good company. 🙂

      • FullofQuestions1

        You forgot Phelous and Diamanda.

        •  Whaaaaat?  They did?  *Zooms off to find this*

          • FullofQuestions1

            No, they didn’t. I was just adding to the list of people who need to.

          •  Ah I got you.  In that case, might as well add Obscurus Lupa to that list.

  • Goblin1001

    Juan Piquer-Simon also directed POD PEOPLE, so no big surprise there’s some cast overlap. too.

    • Cecil_Trachenburg

       Yep, he seemed to enjoy working with the same folks.
