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. (****/*****).
