Back of Box:
This bloody slasher film from director Juan Piquer Simón concerns a chain-saw wielding madman who is roaming a college campus in search of human parts for a ghastly jigsaw puzzle.  Stars Christopher George as a police Lieutenant and Lynda Day George as a police women who goes undercover as a tennis instructor.  Cult horror audiences will love this film that includes plenty of gore, unintentional humor and of course lots of gratuitous nudity.  Not for the faint of heart.  Not to be watched on a full stomach.

  • Filming Location(s):  Boston, Massachusetts and Madrid, Spain.
  • A pig carcass was used for the close-up of the chainsaw cutting through the tennis player. 


  • The film starts set in the 1940's, but a New England Patriots pennant can easily be seen on the wall of the young boy.  The Patriots didn't come into existence until 1960, and even then they were known as the Boston Patriots.
  • Again the prologue is set in the 1940's, but a 1970's style push button phone is shown.
  • The beginning of the film is still set in the 1940's, but near the end of the opening scene the mother tells her son to get a plastic trash bag.  The plastic trash bag wasn't invented until 1950.
  • During the opening of the film, when the mother is screaming at her son over the pornographic puzzle, she mentions that the son's father is in the Air Force.  That's all well and good...except the fact that the US Air Force was called the US Army Air Corps until after WWII ended.

Personal History

  • Bought my copy from an FYE for $4.99.
