This is what happens when the two best movie genres in the world meeteach other and have passionate sex. It's SCI-FI mixed in with sick oldfashioned HORROR. It's the most beautiful mix ever and it was done inthis ERIC RED masterpiece. All the best aspects for a goodhorror/sci-fi were perfectly aligned for this one. An outstanding leadactor, JEFF FAHEY (The Lawnmower Man), a great movie maker, ERIC RED,and a good book, "CHOICE CUTS" from BOILEAU-NARCEJAC. It's starts offgood, then it gets better, but it doesn't stop there. It becomes eerie,then sick, then crazy, and all of a sudden you end up watching aviolent twisted ending. Once you get passed the "yeah right" idea ofthe body grafting, you're in and hooked. You cannot expect CGI, orwitty modern dialogue, due to the fact that it was made in 1991 justbefore the big change between good old-fashioned bloody gore and thenew commercial stuff you see today. You will, at the very least, bemoved by the fact that you saw it and can make a constructive criticismyourself without outside judgment. It was missed by the popularaudience but will always be remembered by HORROR fanatics everywhere.It's a definite keeper.

Directed by Eric Red (Bad Moon, Cohen and Tate, Undertow) made anintriguing horror film with some effective moments of suspense andthrills. This was an box office disappointment, when it was released inthe summer of 1991. The critics were not kind to this movie as well.Sure, the premise isn't original anymore. But director Red tries tomake something different here by adding some neat ideals to the alreadyoften filmed premise of the picture. The underrated Fahey gives anstrong performance. Dourif gives an memorable small role as the artist,who finds sudden success with his paintings. Red does his best work sofar as a filmmaker here. Red wasn't made a movie or wrote a script inyears but it seems, he trying to make a comeback with his latest work"100 Feet". That film will be released sometime in 2008. Like most ofRed's works, "Body Parts" has become a cult classic. It's certainly oneof the most underrated horror movies of the 1990's. Effective musicscore by Loek Dikker. Insipred from the novel "Choice Cuts" by PierreBoileau and Thomas Narcejac (Which they wrote the classic book together"Diabolique"). Co-scripted by the director and Norman Snider (DeadRingers, Rated X). Screen-story by Patricia Herskovic (Producer of cultclassics like "Deadly Blessing", "Mother's Boys" and "Toy Soldiers")and Joyce Taylor. Don't miss it. Panavision. (****/*****).
As bad and ridiculous as this movie was, i found the premise compellingand the questions it posed. Jeff Fahey started to look more and moredemonic as the movie went on, and his hair changed too. I wouldn'trecommend the film, but i think it was horrifying in a Frankensteinianway and fun in the way Blue Velvet was fun, in that dark, film noirkind of way,but Parts was without the aesthetics. I had to laughbecause certain scenes reminded me of Robinson Crusoe on Mars, and thenin other parts i actually wondered what was going on, like maybe therewas a cohesive, tightly woven plot. I think i was mistaken on that. Toobad, the movie sort of had some kind of appeal. Anyone agree? I kind ofthought the painter who received the other arm was a classic nut casein a way that was so over the top as to be humorous.
I actually felt that his family relationships were kind of honest andtouching, even though they saw their dad unraveling. Perhaps one of thehighlights of the film.
