I know the slasher flick "Pieces" is lame, but I can't help love this movie. Since I bought the Diamond label dvd years ago I've wondered (and hoped) a better edition would be released. I was just browsing at diabloikdvd and stumbled onto a region 2 pal release. Does anybody here own this yet? It's advertised to be a far superior release (which wouldn't take much).I might just have to pick this up out of curiosity. Anyway here's a link...

Hmmmm – I can’t play region 2 so I can’t get it – but I too love Pieces. You know what though – looking at the movie, and analyzing why I like it (I like it because it is SO bad) I’m not sure I want an anamorphic print of it. I mean, the whacked colors, the fogginess of it all – it just makes it funnier to me. Frankly, nothing can save this movie as far as taking it seriously is concerned. Which is why I love the Diamond release. I give the diamond release a ten out of ten – who can beat that?

Erm…. Unless….. this one goes to 11 –LOL--

The Diamond DVD is uncut. The pal DVD of "Pieces" shown in the link is the German edition. I think that "Pieces" never made it on video in Germany and is now making it's debut (?) on DVD.
It's a common thing that German distributors label their (horror) DVD releases with the "unrated director's cut" tag even though they might just be the same version shown in the US.

You gotta love a movie where the killer sneaks up on somebody hiding a chainsaw behind his back. In an elevator no less. :D

I love Pieces. I also have the Diamond version. I would love to see another company release a widescreen version of Pieces in Region 1. Aside from the hidden chainsaw scene, I also love the scene with the kung fu teacher. It is hilarious.

I like this one, too, but I didn't watch it enough to keep from trading in my Diamond DVD. And I can't play the R2s. Too bad.
