4.0 out of 5 stars Fady Ghaly's reviews Oct. 31 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This is a very interesting film that is as clever as it is scary. A real horror film that will, by the time its narrative will have completely unfolded, have you so very much involved that you'd presume you were on the opposite side of that screen of yours. And I'll go as far as saying that it'll virtually expunge the thought of you exhaling throughout the last half-hour of it, when great havoc arose among our three afflicted leading men whose lives were completely turned upside-down...or shall I say-targets.
Written and directed by Eric Red, and based upon the novel Choice Cuts by Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac, Body Parts is an exhilarating and tightly-paced film that gets under your skin and lingers long after you've seen it. This well-written work-of-art does more than provide great direction, stunning visuals, grotesque and harrowing scenes that are beyond suitable for the lily-livered, and startling action sequences; in addition, it provides superb performances from the entire cast. What can I say? Once the cast is in character and the cameras are rolling, brace yourself for some realistic work. Here you have the underrated Brad Dourif, who perfectly-to no surprise-depicts the eccentric, chilling and edgy roll of Remo Lacey, a mad artist whose isolation from the rest of the world allows him to pursue with his work, which is influenced by the same disturbing nightmares Jeff Fahey's character undergoes, who'll really just keep you breathless as the affects of his transplant gradually began to show and he, to his horror, altered into this completely new, fanatical man without a wife to wake up with or children to kiss goodnight. Many horror films lack in great performances, as you would surely know by now, but this film possibly has the finest I've ever seen!

4.0 out of 5 stars Eric Red, a good filmmaker. Oct. 4 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A well-made horror thriller that is surprisingly good but at the same time seams to have something wrong with it. Jeff Fahey plays a criminal psychologist who loses his arm in a car accident but gets it replaced with another by emergency surgical replacement. The good thing is it works. The bad thing is he has little control over it. Yes indeed you may have seen many other horror films like this but director/co-writer Eric Red knows how to make a old story line seem new, but the film's screenplay seems to have some plot implausibilities, the film wath's to have two story lines going and the ending is too happy. A lot of theaters pulled the film after the Jeffrey Dahmer story hit the news. Red's next was BED MOON (1996).
1991. Paramount. 88 MINS.
Rated R (Violence and Language).

4.0 out of 5 stars A knockout ride of a thriller. April 28 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Jeff Fahey's life goes to hell when he receives an arm transplant after an auto accident. Turns out the arm came from a serial killer! Written and directed by genre favorite Eric Red, Body Parts is mostly superior entertainment from beginning to end. Fast-paced, with several exciting action sequences (The pseudo-car chase and hospital finale come to mind) and a decent mystery make certain the movie never lets up. Drags a few times in the beginning and the story gets maybe a little too silly, but this is overall a gripping horror/thriller. Fahey is superb, as is Brad Dourif as an eccentric painter.
*** 1/2 out of *****
