Murder Set Pieces


Set against Sin City, Las Vegas, “Murder-Set-Pieces” tells the story of a fashion photographer whose vocation is murder – a voyeuristic nightmare of blood, sex and brutality.

There’s a lot to be said about “Murder Set Pieces” – and not much of it is good.

The story, itself, had promise if made into a Mystery/Thriller – add a detective/cop in there to try and find this murderer, and that would solve some of the ‘watchability’ issues. But, as it stands, what we have is just scene after scene of this Nazi guy killing strippers and hookers, with tiny flashbacks to – what i’m guessing is – his childhood trauma? who knows.

Another disturbing angle in this story is that of his suburban Vegas life.. a girlfriend with a young daughter. The daughter can see that something is up with this guy and just doesnt like him. Perhaps its the fact that their house is filled with large photos of naked women.. and she’s 8.. Her distrust is confirmed when, in the movie’s climax, she finds his secret killing room and almost becomes a victim, her self.

YES.. an 8 year old, grappling with a much larger psychopath, was actually one of the best scenes in the entire production.

Making surprising appearances in this film are two horror icons. Gunnar Hansen (Leatherface / Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Tony Todd (Candyman, Zoom / The Flash). Unfortunately, their scenes were only 5 minutes long, each. But, alas, not even their combined awesomeness could save this horrible movie.
