If you loved the Saw franchise, then you don’t want to miss Saw 8 aka Jigsaw. Read on…
The movie looks like it’s 80 minutes worth of fun death traps and about maybe about 12 minutes of exposition. Basically, it’s everything horror fans want. And the a new series of ‘character’ posters says it all. The posters a grimy, gross, and a bit bloody.
Are you loving it, because the first one who screams loses their head. If you feel a been weird, it might be the fact that the solo posters are slightly unsettling.
Apparently Jigsaw has some unfinished business again, and he’s rounded up a new group of victims to take out one at a time in gruesome, disgusting and utterly terrify torturous ways.
This time around Jigsaw seems to be upping the anti by taking some of it kill scenes from 80s classics like Friday the 13th with a pitchfork, or using pig heads like Motel Hell. Yes, someone is ripping off the classic horror film for millennials who thinks Scream is a way old horror movie.
Of course, co-creator James Wan likes to claim he NEVER saw Motel Hell, but really James? Are you really trying to say that? Wan and Leigh Whannell who created the Saw franchise, NEVER saw horror movies that created the lane so they can prosper? We’re not believing that.
“One of the highest grossing horror franchises of all time is back, taking the Jigsaw killer’s signature brand of twisted scenarios to the next level.”
Basically, the movie is filled with bloody, disgusting and ingenious booby traps of death that are more than likely impossible to escape. Bottom line, everyone dies except one and the killer, this way there can be more.
You might think we’re being cynical about the reboot of the franchise, but hey, if it works, make another.
This time around Jigsaw will be killing Laura Vandervoort (Bitten, Smallville) and Hannah Anderson (Shoot the Messenger, Lizzie Borden Took an Ax), Mandela Van Peebles, Brittany Allen, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Josiah Black, Shaquan Lewis, Michael Bolsvert, and James Gomez.
Jigsaw has been penned by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (with direction from creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell), and directed by the collective minds, Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers). Producers include Mark Burg, Gregg Hoffman, and Oren Koules.
Jigsaw will slicing and dicing in theaters for Halloween weekend on October 27, 2017.
