I'm looking for movie where, I think, serial killer, who first makes love with his victims and then he brutally kills them. I think he use pieces of their body to make some puzzle, or something like vitruvian man. The movie was on TV, 10 years ago. Can someone help me?

i think none od this movies that you mentioned, isn't that what im looking for.. im not 100 percent sure but i think that killer, with pieces of his victims, makes a pentagram and in the end is somthing like this

hmmm, but in the end, as I remember, the meaning has a connection with picture of vitruvian man.. yes, the movie was on TV, but after midnight :D

no, it isnt ressurection :/

Are you sure this is a movie and not a TV show? – iandotkelly Nov 20 '13 at 3:05
Can you supply any other details. I a very sure that I have seen this but I am stuck thinking "The Bone Collector (1999)" which is not really sexual in nature... ANY OTHER CLUES... – Understood Nov 20 '13 at 5:23
Anamorph also falls into this category. Although I am not sure if he makes a puzzle out of the body parts or not. – valyrian Nov 20 '13 at 7:28
Bone collector was the first movie that came to my mind as well, but he didn't have sex with the victims, they were not all women, and he didn't really collect full body parts, just little pieces. – JohnP Nov 20 '13 at 16:41
Did you ever figure out this movie? Ive searched for it for years now. But i havent beed able to find it either. The one im searching for is similar. Police photographer ends up being the serial killer that arranges the pictures of the crime scene in the vitruvian man. There is a female leading role whom i dont know. And id say late eighties to mid nineties. I really hope to figure this out. – user13644 Sep 5 '14 at 12:35

Is it Pieces (1982) aka Mil gritos tiene la noche? From the Wikipedia summary it is clear that the killer makes a puzzle of nude women's bodies after killing them. I didn't watch this film but the description is matching.

I won't downvote this, as I also came across Pieces, but there is no sex involved, and doubtful that it would be on TV in any recognizable form, as it was pretty much a gorefest B movie. – JohnP Nov 20 '13 at 16:37

OK, I think I finally found it: Resurrection with Christopher Lambert from 1999. From IMDb:

This deranged psycho is out on the streets of Chicago trying to replicated Jesus' Easter suffering by using unsuspecting persons', whom he kidnaps and brutally murders, body parts in his recreating Jesus' ordeal on the Cross.

Cajun Chicago police detective John Prudhomme, Christopher Lambert, who gets the jump on the killer by deciphering his notes that he carved into his victims bodies he left at his crime scenes. Det. Prudhomme's attempt to catch the elusive killer leads to his partner Det. Hollinsworth, Leland Orsen, ending up not only getting shot by the police, in mistaking him for the killer, but having his left leg cut off, by the killer, when he's left alone and under intensive care in his hospital room!

Here's the tableau he recreates [WARNING: EXTREMELY GORY!], which resembles the Vitruvian Man.

Stephan, I think this is the one you're looking for, but maybe not the OP, because I don't think the killer has sex with his victims (I could be wrong, though). So what do we do now? ;)

Correct! You know, my first thought was Jesus, but when I found this question my already blurry memory was further confused. We have an interesting problem now, since I see now that the OP specifically states it's not Resurrection! – Stephan Nov 25 '14 at 13:37
DON'T Delete it! – Andrew Martin Nov 25 '14 at 13:39
Even if it doesn't match what the OP was looking for, this could be a perfect match for somebody else searching for a similar description of the film. – Andrew Martin Nov 25 '14 at 13:39
There's nothing wrong with multiple answers for these types of questions (even when the OP has explicitly stated that an answer doesn't match what they wanted). – Andrew Martin Nov 25 '14 at 13:40
I missed that too, otherwise I might have checked it out before posting the bounty. Regardless, the reward goes to you for answering my question (as soon as the system allows me). Thanks! – Stephan Nov 25 '14 at 13:40

A good possibility might be the independent 1994 thriller Cut Up. From IMDb:

Police photographer Carl Roman (Hollins) left his position as a homicide detective after accidentally killing a young girl during a police raid. Four years later, when a serial killer begins stalking New Orleans top retro artists, Carl's friend and former partner persuades him to join the investigation. Enlisting the aid of Mel Korinna, an art historian and denizen of the city's underground art scene, Carl attempts to unravel the mystery of the bizarre, "cut up" messages found at the murder sites.

The serial killer in this film is called The Patchwork Killer because he cuts the victims to pieces and then reassembles them at random. You can find more information about this film here.
