I watch a lot of movies.
I loved this movie so much when it was released, but a sober viewing brought me (and my opinion of it) back down to earth. Despite that, the karaoke scene is still super fun and I enjoyed a silly re-watch. I'm also happy to report that I've "grown up" and only watch trashy retro horror now.
I have so much damn love for this movie. The soundtrack is perfect and Tom Atkins is one of my faves because of this plus Night of the Creeps. To top it all off, those masks are just as iconic to me as the one for Michael Myers. Shove that in your pipe and smoke it!
Flaws are just as numerous as the highlights to be fair though, so take everything I say with a grain of salt. I have…
Almost everyone I follow has this rated a four or higher. Is this the moment I realize slashers aren't my thing? I honestly think that might be the case, since I find Slugs infinitely better.
When all is said and done, Pieces doesn't disappoint. The chainsaw murders were wildly hilarious and a lot of scenes were head-scratchers (in a good way) that left me with more questions than answers. Did dance classes like that really happen? Why did the cops leave him alone? Was the ending meant to scare or cause uncontrollable laughter?
