Body Parts wasn't as bad as I thoughtit would be. It turned out to bepretty entertaining and had a fewmoments that made me jump out of myseat. I believe the director, EricRed, will one day be a more popularfilm-maker. He does a good job andcreates some genuine tension.

Right from the opening scene, if you let it, this movie will give yougoose-bumps. Not that the first scene consisting of two people talking isparticularly scary, it is just shot in such a brilliant subtly eerie way(asare all the scenes) that you can't help but be somewhat creepedout.The plot--involving a man receiving a new arm after losing his in aterribleauto accident and discovering that it belonged to a serial killer thathappens to want it back--sounds ludicrous, yet somehow Red lets the storyunfold seamlessly and realistically and you find yourself believing everydetail. This movie is about as intensely spooky as you can get, and everylast moment of terror is executed perfectly. Red never lets you relax,because the minute you think things are settling down, somethingcompletelyunexpected and wonderfully of-beat will leap out of no where are scare yousilly.And finally, Body Parts succeeds in the extraordinary-visuals category notby throwing a bunch of flashy special effects in your face, but byremarkably original scenes fantastically constructed from ordinary thingsthat become almost mesmerizing. This is the best horror film I haveseen to date (August 20, 2000) and I have seen many. Just remember not totake it all too seriously, because this movie relies on emotions andcharacters to convey it realistically, not situations or plotting whicharemore fantastical than real-life based. But if, like myself, you letyourselfbecome completely absorbed in the story, characters, and suspense, you arein for a true treat.
Now I must admit I really didn't think I was going to like this one! Thisterrible judgement was down to its corny title, obviously low budget, andthat awful actor Jeff Fahey! I have never seen a movie with this actor thatI have truly been impressed with, due to his wooden acting and blandexpression. Sadly this movie was no different, but it was saved by someveryneat performances.
The story is simply a re-hash of a tried and tested idea - some guy (inthiscase a criminal psychologist) loses a limb, and a replacement is sewn on -subsequently it comes to light that the limb is of a dead psychopath. Thequestion is, who does the arm now really belong to? There are some nicetreats given to those who pay attention to the script ("I have the blood ofa murderer running through my body" is a chilling line, even by the dismalFahey!). There are some good performances too, most notably from the twofemale leads. Kim Delaney plays the wife very well, and her panic at theapparently unexplainable situation feels very real. Lindsay Duncan turns ina fine performance as the doctor who's surgical efforts bring more than GBHto the picture! Loek Dikker (!) has composed an interestingly dissonantscore, that unfortunately goes a little too over the top in places, but isgood nonetheless. The gore is plentiful, and well done. I cannot oftenstomach realistic surgical drama, and I did have to turn away on numerousgruesome occasions!
This film will not disappoint a punter who feels like 90 minutes ofbrain-easy escapism. An enjoyable movie!
