One Last Look at Jigsaw and Friends in Saw V!
In just under a week, for the fifth consecutive year, Saw V will hit theaters. In honor of the upcoming release and in thanks to a batch of new photos revealed on Bloody Disgusting, I've put together one last final look at Saw V. No one really knows what will happen, who will live, who will die, or whether Jigsaw really is still alive, but we'll know all the answers in a few more days. Until then, feast your eyes on this vicious assortment of new photos that may (or may not) provide some additional clues as to what we'll see on October 24th. I know there are still plenty of hardcore Saw fans out there and it's time to get excited!
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.

I think this franchise was better off as just one movie. I see Feast is mentioned under the pictures - now there's some sequels I'm looking forward to.

I agree with comment 1...one movie would have suited me fine, and the first movie did. I have never seen any of these in the theaters and never will, the second one was terrible and they have only gotten worse, its time to move on with a different franchise, hopefully sooner rather than later.

To TBone: How can you say the sequels have gotten progressively worse, yet you said you haven't seen any of them? Hmmmm.......I've seen them all and I DO have reasons to believe that the quality is declining. Hopefully, Saw V will redeem the franchise from the mistakes they made in IV...

... there will be blood

to Henry P. I don't mean to jump in the defense of TBone but he said that he never seen any of these IN THEATHERS... that doesn't mean that he didn't see them somehow else...

I think Saw always gets a bad wrap if you really look at it the performances and story lines are actually done quite well and realisticly. LOL.... Love these films for what they are reminds me of the good old Troma classics like Blood sucking freaks and Toxic Avenger it is what it is and i just like seeing the traps go off. My Bloodlust is quenched and im happy.

Saw V: Milk the Franchise dry. Better be the last movie. Jigsaw is dead. End it. Jesus

The only terrible Saw sequel was Saw II. Saw III & IV were very good. although not on par with Saw I, III & IV were certainly not as bad as II.

not again...I can't believe they make 5 movies about..a guy killing others..wow great!!

#8 got it right. i liked them all but saw II was different which is not necessarily saying its worse, but it was more like an average thriller
jim on Oct 19, 2008
they already have a 6th and II was the best movie in the series!

To say the franchise was better off as one movie is an ignorant statement. The first movie, obviously, was my favorite because the audience did not know what to expect... the shock factor..., but I love to see a good story extended. Could it have gone a different way that would have been better? Yes. But there is always room for more. The story line is way too interesting and unique to stop making these films. Please make 20 of them and I will see every one... along with millions of other people. Click below to read about a kick ass movie coming out called "Franklyn"...Saw fans will love this film.

Come on who Doesn't like a good blood gulch every now and then, and besides Saw-1-4 were way better than any other franchise out (i.e. Halloween, Jason, Chucky, Freddy all got awful with the exception of Rob Zombie's Halloween).

#2, glad to see someone else enjoyed Saw II, although i dont think it was the best. Saw FTW
Hi kenny! on Oct 19, 2008
i liked the saw franchise. its just not as intense as the first.
darrin on Oct 19, 2008
Isn't that Jigsaw at the top?
DCompose on Oct 19, 2008
Nah the second one was complete and utter shit. Third one wasn't too bad. It had more of the same vibe as the original saw. However 4 was, imo, the worse one yet. Bad everything. Lets hope this one is just decent at least...
sd on Oct 19, 2008
I liked the first. Second not so much. The third and fourth were worth the rentals. And i might go see the fifth in theaters(if my buddy can get me in for free).
Red Buttons on Oct 19, 2008
I like the franchise. They were all either great (the first) or at least decent (IV, the was the one I liked the least. I actually throughly enjoyed II). I don't think they are anything spectacular and aren't supposed to be anything but bloody fun. It is more a traditiion to see them more than anything else. I think this one everyone should seeing, because it is a different director so I will find it intresting if this one will have a different vibe too it.
Ryan on Oct 19, 2008
Honestly, after the second one, they all became tedious. The visceral experience has the ability to leave one physically and emotionally exhausted. Add on to that a plot that intentionally plods only so it can be flipped upside down at the end...and you have the Saw sequels. The only one that isn't like that is the second one, and I believe that is due to the fact that Saw II was not entirely gore, but actually had a workable plot and decent acting (keyword "decent").

For everyone out there, Saw II was originally supposed to be 2 seperate films. 1) Called The Desperate(all the scenes in the house) 2) Saw II(scenes with the cop) Instead of allowing these films to be sepearte Saw bought out The Desperate and integrated it into their own. Thus the reason it being so horrible. But I adore Saw I, III, IV. And I'm sure Saw V will be just as good. And to those who want the series to end, they have signed on to do Saw VI

Im not blaming the film-makers for continuing to make these films, Im blaming the people who actually spend the money to see them. The first sign that these are terrible is that they come out every year, what is this, the Madden franchise? Are they going for the record here, most sequels for one horror franchise, trying to take down Freddy? The second sign is the cheesy acting! They need one knockout script for the next movie, get some better actors, believeable characters......and call it quits!

Get over yourselves... These movies are not nearly as bad as some of you are pretending they are to be to "yourselves"
r1000 on Oct 20, 2008
I would say this wont make more than 10 million if that.
Saw V Giveaway on Oct 20, 2008
it's simple... saw and saw 2= great (have low budgets but make it look good) saw 3 and saw 4= sucked big time (have higher budgets and it really, really shows) saw 5= somewhere in the middle but will lose a portion of the crowd due that stupid hsm 3 shyt and #24- your an idiot 4 thinkin that
LeeMan on Oct 21, 2008
I think that all of the Saw movies were great. I don't think they should have killed Jigsaw, that way they could have made more!!!
