It's exactly what you think it is!

From Juan Piquer Simón, director of the equally unhinged Slugs, Pieces is the original sickening slasher classic, now restored in glorious 4K! A Boston college campus is being terrorised by a black-clad maniac who collects body parts from his unfortunate co-ed victims. As the corpses (and red herrings) begin to pile up, can Professor Brown (genre veteran Jack Taylor) unmask the murderer before his morbid puzzle is complete? Boasting some of the most outrageous gore set-pieces ever to splash their way across the screen (including a particularly memorable slow-motion evisceration atop a waterbed), Pieces is an essential slice of Spanish splatter and more gruesome than ever on Blu-ray.

One of the supplements included on this release states flat out how many of Juan Piquer Simón's film were (in the commentator's words) "Grade Z" efforts, and while there's certainly a low rent quality to much of Pieces, it actually boasts above average effects and some relatively decent if often hyperbolic performances. Arrow has provided fans with another release of a cult item featuring excellent technical merits and some very appealing supplements. Recommended. - 5/5
