Final Saw V Poster - You Won't Believe How it Ends!
by Alex Billington
August 29, 2008
Lionsgate has just debuted the final poster for the upcoming Saw V. I've always greatly admired the Saw posters and their disturbing subtly and minimalistic design. This one from Saw III is still one of my all-time favorites. Now they've put out the final one and it's vastly less shocking than the teaser that hit in June, but it's still a very well-designed poster that should make fans quite happy. I'd suggest you take a look yourself even if you're not a big Saw fan. The catch phrase on this one is "you won't believe how it ends" even though we all know they're going to continue this series for years to come. So feast your eyes on this!
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.

If the Body of Lies poster is unimpressive, that one is too.

the one ith hoffman earing the mask is better, but it still is pretty effective. the franchise has done a good job with makin posters, and the one where the guy is holding up his two dirty fingers for saw 2 is by far the best. by the way, i think they mean what happens at the end of the trap, not the end of the movie or the franchise.

Yea they are referring to the trap, since they have already have the others movies signed on contract and somewhat in production. So yea... 10 more yrs of Saw <_< yay!

How can people be asking for this to end? It's the first true unique horror icon that's been developed since, I dare to say, Wes Craven's Scream. Saw gives me the same experience as I'm sure the Freddy and Jason fans of the 80's felt and those films are still being made. It's cliched, but yet expected that a true horror classic lasts at least 8 films (at least they're not making it less realistic by bringing back Jigsaw from the dead...yet) It's become a Halloween ritual of mine to go see Saw which I think contributes to this films success...if they ever changed the release date I don't think it would make nearly as much and would lead to it's demise. The marketing for these films is really examplery too...

I can't believe how many people want this to end. I believe these are the most entertaining horror films in a long time. I hate horror films and yet this franchise has drawn me to fall in love with the sick sociopath of Jigsaw. BRING IT ON!

Huge Horror fan... Saw is what I look forward to... I missed the first one, saw it on DVD and have been hooked ever since... it's fun and entertaining. For sequels, they are well down, crafty and impressive how they keep the story going and make it all one puzzle since that is not how it was set up... always impressed how they turn a good independent movie into a franchise... Any HORROR movie that makes money is good in my book because it keeps the genre alive and kicking. Saw is the reason we get a new F13... of course it was also the reason we got a new Halloween (which I just pretend doesn't exist).

Yea... I can't believe the comments on here wanting SAW to end... I dare say these are people who consider themselves to "sophisticated" to enjoy such movies... Hey look at me, I'm serious and to old to enjoy a SAW movie... Please, get over yourselves ... I'm more inclined to believe that they actually do watch these movies and have guilty pleasures... #7 is spot on with his assessment of these movies being unique. I like watching these movies just to see the death contraptions that are devised for the each situation, some crazy devices they've come up with.

The thing that's awesome about the Saw flicks is that they're letting the 'little people' who worked on the previous Saw flicks have a shot at writing and directing the next ones. I think that alone is a brilliant idea. Give people a shot like that and they'll usually give you something great, trying to one up the last guy in a friendly competition sort of way. I've only seen the first couple of saw flicks, tho. One of these days I'll have to go rent them all and have an all day Saw-a-thon. This Halloween, maybe...

Who created these Saw movie posters? If anyone knows please could you tell me. These poster are brilliant! They achieve exactly what is intended.
