Out of Comic-Con comes the first trailer for Jigsaw,
the long-awaited eighth installment in the Saw series.
The franchise certainly suffered from fatigue as they were churning out a new one every year, but this trailer looks like a promising return.
If it’s Halloween it must be Saw, and Jigsaw opens on October 27 via Lionsgate.
Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers. Predestination) direct from a script by
Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D, Sorority Row).
Matt Passmore, Callum Keith Rennie, Clé Bennett, Hannah Emily Anderson, Laura Vandervoort, Mandela Van Peebles, Paul Braunstein, Brittany Allen, and Josiah Black star. Although not confirmed, it’s a safe bet to say Tobin Bell will somehow reprise his iconic role as Jigsaw.
“The SAW films lack political subtext, they aren’t like classic horror films.”
wHAT is more politically relevant than a self-righteous babyboomer demanding that millennials engage in nearly impossible acts of self torture for the dubious reward of being allowed to go on living?????
