31 Days of Horror Movies: Day 1 – Pieces (1983)


It’s October 1, so that means it’s time to embark on 31 days of horror films, in which I’m going to write a little bit about a horror movie I love or loathe every day. If anyone else wants to join me in the challenge, feel free, just tag me somewhere or let me know so I can read yours too. (I know Marc MuellerJon Hunt and Trixi Michelle Hunter are doing similar month-long horror fests so I can’t wait to see if we cross streams at any point). First one up is “Pieces,” which has one of the greatest horror trailers (make that meta-horror trailers) ever: “You don’t have to go to Texas for a Chainsaw Massacre” reads one title card, while another simply says “It’s exactly what you think it is.” (I do wonder if this is the original trailer?) This one’s trash, but for fans of the genre it’s prime-slasher-era trash.
