Check This Out: Peculiar French Saw V Poster

In one week we'll be entering the month of October, and you probably know what that means - Saw is back! We've just discovered a poster for the upcoming Saw V on the French site called FilmsActu (via JoBlo). It's a poster that Saw fans should find rather interesting because it has some rather peculiar imagery. Is this guy tied on this poster part of a trap? Or is there something else? Or is it just some gruesome imagery used to help sell yet another installment in this series. Although I didn't exactly love Saw IV, I'm still quite excited to see Saw V. I'm sure I'm not alone - there are probably plenty of big fans out there.

The Saw series has always had incredibly crazy posters, and this is a very interesting one. I'm curious to see whether this is actually a part of the film or not. Thoughts?

French Saw V Poster

In Saw V, Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) is seemingly the last person alive to carry on the Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) legacy. But when his secret is threatened, Hoffman must go on the hunt to eliminate all loose ends. The full cast also includes Scott Patterson, Betsy Russell, Mark Rolston, Carlo Rota, Julie Benz, Greg Bryk, Laura Gordon and Meagan Good.

Saw V is directed by production designer David Hackl, who will be making his directorial debut. The script was written by screenwriting duo Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan of Feast and Saw IV. As is always the tradition, Lionsgate will be releasing Saw V in theaters around Halloween - October 24th.

very interested in the upcoming movie. have seen 1-3 but not 4 and i've had a lot of people tell me that 4 was the worst one which makes me hesitant to watch it so it wouldn't ruin the rave review i would give the first three. but does any one know what those French words in the poster mean? Heroes was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saw 4 kinda lost me...However I do like this posters subtlety...Notice the guy's arms bound in a "V" shape for the Roman numeral...

Interesting, so there are people who like this series? I had always wondered why they kept making them. The poster is pretty awesome, reminds me of the games I used to play as a kid.

Yeah #3 got it. I'm from Quebec and the tagline for this Saw 5 poster is what he wrote. Which is, "Did you really think that this was the end?". It'll be awesome.

Looking forward to it. I have always been intrigued by Jigsaw's sick and demented ways and the fact that normal people come up with these elaborate death traps just for entertainments sake. That takes a huge amount of intellectual and emotional prowess and to them I applaud.

It worries me that the writer of Saw IV is the same person who wrote this one...hopefully a fresh director will be enough to return the franchise to it's roots.

wow its obvious! his arms tied behind his back make a V which is the roman numeral for 5! it doesn't mean anything other then that.

return the franchise "to its roots"? its roots were five years ago! there hasn't been enough time to mull over the last few films, let alone more than the first two, to figure out what the hell is actually going on in any of them, save some kind of money-machine that lionsgate has working overtime because they know how much it brings in. i appreciate the blood drives they do every year for this, but COME ON don't compare it to other horror movies. this yearly wear on american pop culture is getting on my nerves.
