Bloodsucking Pharaohs in Pittsburgh
USA, 1991

Jake Dengel, Joe Sharkey, Susann Fletcher
Directed by Dean Tschetter


Will a secret Egyptian ritual lead detectives Joe Blocker and Sweeney Birdwell to a serial chainsaw killer terrorizing Pittsburgh. A series of clues leads them to Little Egypt, where they confront a bizarre collection of homicidal zanies, eccentric kooks, and tempting beauties.

Hysterical satire on those silly big-studio cop-buddy movies and ridiculous no-budget horror flicks. Despite the intruiging title there is very little of Egyptological interest in this film. Also known as "Picking Up the Pieces".
