Body Parts is a 1991 Sci-fi horror movie starring ‘Lost’ and ‘The Marshall fame Jeff Fahey. The title encapsulates what the movie is about. It is a gore and grotesque body horror movie but with a creative storyline. Along with that, Jeff Fahey’s acting chops made the movie stand out. Loosely based on the novel Choice Cuts by French writing duo Boileau-Narcejac. Even though it’s based on a book by French writers, the filming of Body Parts happened in Toronto, Canada. An inevitable accident costs the hero his arm. But it is soon enough replaced by another man’s arm and things seem fine. Until he finds out something.

Don’t judge a book by its cover! The title and the images may throw you off but the overall movie is not too bad. It is written and directed by The Hitcher’s writer, Eric Red. Apart from Jeff Fahey, ‘All My Children’ fame Kim Delaney also stars opposite him.

Body Parts Storyline

A criminal psychologist, Bill gets into an unforeseen accident and loses one of his arms. However, the passionate Dr. Agatha Webb fixes another arm replacing the amputated one. Bill experiences scary nightmares and flashbacks, only to find out the arm belongs to a serial killer. On one hand, Agatha doesn’t want to deter her successful experiment and refuses to help. And on the other, the other two who get the same body parts, aren’t of much support either. Later, the serial killer although amputated is still found to be alive. A showdown kills the serial killer’s body for good and the movie ends with Bill having a new arm but a normal one this time.
