Body Parts is a 1991 psychological horror film directed by Eric Red and starring Jeff Fahey, Lindsay Duncan, and Kim Delaney. The plot centers around Bill Chrushank (played by Jeff Fahey), a criminal psychologist who loses his arm in a car accident. Through a revolutionary surgery, Bill is given a new arm from a deceased donor. However, the arm soon begins to have a mind of its own, and Bill's behavior begins to change. As Bill investigates the origins of his new limb, he uncovers a dark and sinister plot.

The film begins with Bill Chrushank driving home from work, when he is involved in a horrific car accident that results in him losing his right arm. He is taken to the hospital, and after a period of recovery, he is approached by a doctor who offers him a new experimental surgery that will give him a new arm. Initially reluctant, Bill eventually agrees to undergo the surgery and is given an arm transplant from an anonymous donor.

Soon after the procedure, Bill begins to experience strange nightmares and his behavior becomes erratic. He becomes aggressive and violent towards his wife and children, and starts to develop a fascination with car accidents. Bill eventually seeks the help of a fellow doctor, Dr. Webb (played by Lindsay Duncan), who starts to uncover the truth about the origins of his arm.

As Bill and Dr. Webb investigate, they discover that the donor of Bill's arm was a serial killer who was executed for his crimes. The arm is revealed to have retained some of the killer's consciousness, and is influencing Bill's behavior. As Bill's actions become more erratic and violent, Dr. Webb realizes that they must find a way to sever the connection between Bill and his arm before it's too late.

Body Parts is a unique horror film that explores the concept of identity and the idea of having control over one's own body. The film's plot is both gripping and chilling, and director Eric Red does an excellent job of building suspense and tension throughout the movie. The film also benefits from a strong cast, with Jeff Fahey delivering a standout performance as the troubled Bill.

One of the most interesting aspects of the film is the way it blurs the lines between reality and fiction. As Bill's behavior becomes more erratic, the audience is left to wonder if his actions are truly the result of his new arm, or if there is something else at play. The film also raises questions about the nature of consciousness and identity, and whether or not our bodies truly define who we are.

Overall, Body Parts is a compelling and thought-provoking horror film that offers a unique take on the genre. With solid performances and a strong story, the film is a must-watch for fans of horror and psychological thrillers.

Body Parts is a 1991 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 28 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.6.
