Directed By: Eric Red

Rated: R/Region A/2:35/1080p/Number of Discs 1
Available from Scream Factory

Bill Chrushank is a criminal psychologist who loses his arm and nearly his life in a grisly car accident. A daring medical operation follows, in which a donor’s arm is successfully grafted onto Bill’s body. But after the operation, the arm starts to take on a violent life of its own, striking out against Bill’s wife and children. Consumed by fears about his dangerous behavior, Bill is driven to learn the donor’s identity – and makes a horrifying discovery that delivers him into a world of unimaginable terror. Written and directed by Eric Red (Cohen & Tate, Bad Moon), this thriller stars Jeff Fahey (Alita: Battle Angel) and Brad Dourif (Child’s Play, Graveyard Shift).

Body Parts was a movie that came out in the early ’90s and while I’m sure I rented the VHS back in the day, I think I kind of looked over it a bit. Scream Factory is making sure that doesn’t happen now as they have released it on Blu-ray. What basically happens here is our lead character, Bill, is a head doctor who deals with crazy killers. One day he gets in a very gruesome wreck and the end results are him getting a new arm, but the arm comes from a crazy killer. He’s not the only guy to get parts from this killer and soon enough they all start to have some problems with the new parts. What follows after that is the more bloody portions of the film as it appears someone is on a mission to recollect these parts. That’s probably the best part of this one and I sure can appreciate the blood in these portions of the movie.

This one is an interesting one. I liked the concept and I liked the blood when we get it, but it isn’t one I’d go to often. Don’t get it wrong what I’m saying here, I liked it, I just don’t love it. The acting is good and despite the bloody bits in it (my favorite part of it), I think this one leans a little more towards the thriller side of things, just with a little more of an edge to it in portions. I think if you missed this one back in the day it’s at least worth checking out. I also think Scream Factory did a good job on this one with the transfer and the extras that we get with it as well. The ’90s weren’t all bad in horror as something like this will show you.
