Charlotte (Kristi Ray), a success-free aspiring actress, just hates her life: Her alcoholic mother (Barbara Weetman) who's living with her is driving her insane, she deplores her job as a waitress in a restaurant, and she doesn't know how much more turn downs at auditions she'll be able to handle ... and then she meets David (David Long), or rather saves him from the bouncer of the strip club, who's in the process of beating the living daylights out of David.

She nurses David back to health, and even before he tells her he's a filmmaker, there is a connection right there, as if they were soulmates or something. David knows all the right things to say, too, and he seems sincere as he never promises her anything but builds up her confidence and gives her hope. The one thing he does promise her is to cast her in his next project, and since he never tries to get into her panties but takes her out on romantic dates and the like, she tends to believe him - and he will make good of his promise, too ...

There is another side to David though, a side Charlotte has no idea of: Several years ago, he was tricked by a group of producers and filmmakers, and since he secretly hates all movie-folks - so he abducts actors, producers and filmmakers to torture and eventually kill them, using ever more sophisticated devices ... to be immortalized on his ever-growing private collection of snuff videos. Next on his list, Charlotte's mum, once a wannabe actress herself, and then ...

 

Pieces of Talent is a creepy little film that successfully neglects the good old slasher formula while still delivering the goods, and first and foremost, it's down to the killer himself, who's really the most sincere and even likeable guy ... who's of course batshit crazy (even if it's often hard to feel sympathy for the scumbags he kills, and intentionally so). Add to that a series of really accomplished torture machines and murder scenarios, violent mood swings to keep the audience on the edge of their seats, and the occasional tongue-in-cheek moment, and you've got yourself a pretty unusual but entertaining little genre movie.
