‘I have something beautiful I want you to see’

Pieces of Talent is a 2014 American horror feature film directed by Joe Stauffer and starring David Long, Kristi Ray, and Taylor Kowalski.

Charlotte is a struggling young actress who can’t catch a break. In an effort to support herself and her hopeless mother, Charlotte holds a job as a cocktail waitress at a seedy, local strip club and hates every minute of it. During a cigarette break late one evening she witnesses an altercation between an overzealous bouncer and an unfortunate passerby, David.

David makes movies and given Charlotte’s career interests a friendship quickly develops. Soon enough, David mentions a project he has in the works that she would be perfect for and an excited Charlotte agrees to take part. She has no idea what she has signed up for…


“It doesn’t always move fast and it features a surprisingly slim body count and while it may often times feel like more of an art film than a horror film, Pieces Of Talent is one of those odd pictures that really sticks with you once it’s over with. Despite some minor quibbles, Stauffer and company show massive potential here…” Rock! Shock! Pop!


“On this rare occasion, it is safe to actually believe the hype as Pieces of Talent is not just a great indie horror but is easily just one of the best horror movies released last year. A helluva lot of enthusiasm, passion and talent are evident here with all involved going in with the want of making a superior addition to the genre rather than for financial gain and they succeeded in just that with a mesmerizing genius inventive vision fully realized.” Cinematic Shocks


“The gore in this flick is top-notch. As far as I could tell, there was no CGI used, and all of the practical effects were executed beautifully. Tony Rosen’s special effects work, coupled with writer, producer, musician, editor, and cinematographer (!) Joe Stauffer’s filming techniques, were some of the best I’ve seen in a long time.” Repulsive Reviews
