Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film (2006)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
11.02.07

Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film (2006) The only thing, really, this has in common with Adam Rockoff's book, on which it is based, is the title - and that it has commentary by many of the people in the same book. But what made the book interesting is that it's filtered through the author's perspective, which made it more personal and relatable to the reader.

The documentary tries to interview as many people as possible, many not interviewed in the book. Many of them 'talking heads', there's this urge to have the interviewees walking around. Carpenter is walking in a graveyard (granted, he looks like one of the corpses but enough is enough), and FANGORIA editor Tony Timpone is walking back and forth down some dark hallway, looking a little inconvenienced. And for some reason Tom Savini is starting to look like Robert Z'dar. The documentary is also constructed differently and primarily consists of people's opinions (Felissa Rose gets a little irritating), not a treatise on the Splatter movie.Granted, it's cool seeing all these clips from movies, but that's about it.

I would only recommend this AFTER you read the book, not before, as a sort of companion piece.
