It’s no big secret that the SAW franchise is returning this Halloween season after a several year hiatis – the other day the new teaser poster rolled out and today we have gotten our first official still for the flick – JIGSAW.
Via Entertainment Weekly – we get a picture of Laura Vandervoot going down for the count.
Picking up right were they left off – Lionsgate will debut this eighth chapter in the SAW franchise on October 27th. Remember the old “If it’s Halloween – It must be SAW” – I think Lionsgate is longing for a return to those days.
The Spierig Brothers – Peter and Micheal – direct and Michael the following to say about the venture into the horror franchise:
“We’ve got some pretty wild traps in the film — we don’t shy away from the gore. It’s such a perfect Halloween scarefest. It’s perhaps not quite as vicious and more fun, which is something we tried to inject into it. But it’s still full of good fun gore, that’s for sure. And, on top of that, it’s got a really great mystery, and there’s very interesting twists. It’s Saw for 2017.”
Will Tobin Bell find a way to wiggle his way on screen? We’ll have to wait till October to find out but it wouldn’t surpise me.
I mention above about the teaser poster, if you have yet to lay eyes upon it – give it a stare!
That PR machine is just starting to hum so if you’re a SAW fan – check back often as I am sure we’re going to be seeing much more in the coming weeks.
