Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
1982 brought us the brutal and over the top slasher PIECES which caught the eyes of many. To this day the film is held in high regard by some fans as a staple for so bad that it's good Horror. PIECES is a wild, unrated gorefest, with enough splatter and sleaze to shock the most jaded Horror fan.
Grindhouse Releasing prepares to unleash a 3-disk Special Edition Blu-ray of PIECES early next year. We have the details waiting for you below.
"One of my top horror films of all time! Not only is this the ultimate chainsaw movie, it's the ultimate slasher film. It has everything you could possibly want, by the bucketful. Full on chainsaw violence, absurd amounts of nudity, and the greatest ending in horror history. A masterpiece of early '80s sleaze."
