Fight 'till death in the most bizarre gladiator-style games in "Spare Parts"

Attention, because this can be a fun one. And, yes, this is not the first time the body of young good looking girls have been weaponized in film, there we got the weird Noboru Iguchi revenge film The Machine Girl (2008), or Robert Rodriguez’s zombie film Planet Terror (2007) with Rose McGowan and her hard-to-forget machine-gun and rocket-launcher leg. But, instead of using their new body gadgets for revenge or saving the world, what about using them for sports? I know, maybe not sports in the fairest version of the world. Let’s better say… for amusement. And, to spice it all up a little more, let’s add some loud punk rock. Ladies and gentlemen, give a warm welcome to Spare Parts (2020).

In a godforsaken bar in the middle of nowhere – an all-girl punk band, Ms. 45, rip the stage apart with their punk spirit. Their performance impresses an enthusiastic fan who lures the girls into a trap, sedates them, and starts… customizing them. The four wake up with an axe, drill or chainsaw attached to one arm and are forced to fight gladiator-style, in an arena-style auto-wrecking yard for the amusement of The Emperor and his sadistic townsfolk.

After his debut feature film Sweet Karma (2009), Spare Parts (2020) is the second movie as director of Andrew Thomas Hunt, one of the founding members of Raven Banner Entertainment, also producers of the movie. It has been written by David Murdoch and Svet Rouskov.

Spare Parts (2020) is starred by Michelle Argyris, Emily Alatalo, Kiriana Stanton, Chelsea Muirhead, Jason Rouse, Ryan Allen, Kathryn Kohut, and veteran Julian Richings, known for having participated in popular films like Cube (1997), Urban Legend (1998), Wrong Turn (2003), Saw IV (2007), Man of Steel (2013), and The Witch (2015), plays the villain The Emperor.
