Pieces of Talent is being heralded as a MUST own by some of the most esteemed names in Underground horror! I have seen numerous folks in the industry say it is one of the 5 top must haves of the year, and that is coming from people in the know of the extreme indie horror. But we all know opinions are like assholes and every one's got one, so rather than continue to espouse the greatness, take a sneak peek below at the trailer and then read on to get the gory good details on this lil nasty!
Pieces of Talent features special effects by Tony Rosen, who created the iconic Annabelle doll for The Conjuring and the upcoming Annabelle. Stauffer's unrelenting vision brings to mind the visual finesse of David Fincher's Se7en with the unflinching intensity of Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
In addition to the DVD, Pieces of Talent is also available for instant stream on your computer/mobile device and on limited edition, bloodied VHS tape. Collectors can also take home a unique "death scene" VHS and a hand-crafted bobble head. All of these items are available directly from the filmmakers via the Pieces of Talent webstore. For a limited time, you can enter the coupon code "horror" at check out to save $2.00 on your order.
"After an amazing run in the festival circuit, we are excited to finally have the film available to the public," explains Stauffer, who, in addition to directing, served as co-writer, cinematographer, composer and editor. "We poured our hearts into this project and can't wait for people to see it on the screen."
David Long, who co-wrote the script with Stauffer, stars as a maniacal serial killer posing as a filmmaker, with Kristi Ray as his latest muse. They are joined by Jon Stafford (Full Metal Jacket), Barbara Weetman (Stuck in Love) and Taylor Kowalski (Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever).
