March's Blu-ray of the Month: Pieces (1982)!
"A psychopathic killer stalks a Boston campus, brutally slaughtering nubile young college co-eds, collecting body parts from each victim to create the likeness of his mother who he savagely murdered with an axe when he was ten years old! Pieces is a wild, unrated gorefest, with enough splatter and sleaze to shock the most jaded horror fan."

One of our absolutely favorite sleazy Slashers of the 80's is finally coming to Blu-ray on March 1st!

Pieces is a perfect slice of 80's Horror; it's got that creepy 80's Slasher flick vibe, it's bloody, it's exploitative, it makes absolutely no sense, the dubbing and dialogue are laughable, the acting isn't much better, it's got the usual "What in the hell was that?!?" ending that was so prevalent in that era...

And it is all insanely glorious.

Grindhouse Releasing has been on a tear lately, with their awesome Blu-ray releases of The Beyond, Cannibal Ferox, and Cannibal Holocaust, and so we're dying to get our hands on this Guilty Pleasure of the highest magnitude.

Please read our review of Pieces (the movie, not the Blu-ray) below for our full breakdown. Oh, and then add this one to your shopping carts on Amazon. It's going to be good.

*Right now, Amazon has Pieces listed at around $40; make sure you wait until it drops to somewhere in the $20 range before ordering. $40 is crazy for any movie.
