First Video of the Saw VI Cast Talking About the Movie

We haven't talked about Saw VI since, well, last year before even Saw V came out. Of course, as we get closer to October, when the next Saw installment is always going to be due, Lionsgate is starting up their big marketing machine in hopes of making it as successful as the five previous movies. Saw VI stars Tobin Bell, as always, Shawnee Smith, back as Amanda, Costas Mandylor as Mark Hoffman again, and a handful of a bunch of new actors. Kevin Greutert, who has edited all five of the previous Saw movies, is making his directorial debut with Saw VI. Read on to see the Maple Pictures interview video with the cast of Saw VI.
According to this video, Saw VI is going to be "pretty amazing" - as both Tobin Bell and Betsy Russell use that phrase. There's really not much revealed in this, only the news that they've finished shooting and that the cast is pretty excited (but aren't they always?). After Saw V, I'm curious to see if they're going to be using a story in Saw VI that plays with the timeline again. As in, what we see in this might have actually all occurred before one of the previous movies, but we won't know that until the end when the twist is revealed. I'm not the biggest Saw fan anymore, but I'll still check this out once it hits theaters in October. Will you?

We all knew Saw VI and VII were planned before V came out. I think VII is planned anyway.

The original Saw was truly amazing. It was more a character piece and about the twists than it was about blood and gore, and thats all it is now, blood and gore.

I got hooked on Saw after the plot twist in the last five minutes of the first movie. I've seen all of them but so far nothing has measured up to the first. however i still enjoy them unlike most people

This crap needs to die.

I think this is the last one. I'm looking foward to it though. I do with all of these friggin' movies. You gotta give 'em credit though. In a time when most sequels come out directly to video, all Saw movies have come out in theaters. I watched SawIII, IV, and V in theaters. I didn't get to see the first two because I was deployed. So, yeah. I dig 'em. I just like how they keep trying to tie it all together.

Perfect example of a series that gets worse as each movie comes and goes. However, they are very smart to release these during Halloween because there usually isn't much competition. These movies make back their budget on opening weekend so there is no reason not to keep making them.

Why do haters of the Saw filsm see the movies if they want them to stop? It's childish. You don't get the Saw films, if you don't get it, you don't get it. You don't have to force it to stop just because you want it to stop. Just don't see the films. Saw haters enjoy playing the victim, as if they're making movies at their expense. Of course I'm not telling what to think. Just don't see the movie if you don't want it to stop. Why keep seeing movies in a series you hate? It's retarded.

Continued: I didn't quite get a big idea out of High School Musical, so when they made up to three and pretty soon number four, did I say, "NO! IT NEEDS TO STOP BECAUSE I SAID SO!"? No. That's a ridiculous thing to do. Just don't see it, and don't judge wht you don't understand. "Saw" is so frequently classified as 'torture porn' by people who have never seen even one of the film's installments. The difference is that Saw has an ongoing storyline that demands another installment to answer questions and continue the storyline. People don't get "Saw", that's why Saw fans are a persecuted minority, who get labeled as "lovers of torture porn" or "teens who think they're hardcore" or "people who liek to jerk off to agony". You haters know nothing about the franchise, and you know nothing about the fanbase. Spend some time amongst a fanbase amongst the Internet or Sawmania, and see the people of the fanbase for who they are. If you don't like Saw films, stay away from them. But for one thing, do not judge the fanbase.

Continued: Now, I will personally draw the line at VI. Much like Star Wars had six installments, it would best if Saw close dit story there, but I don't think that's possible with Lionsgate. Either way, like many Saw fans of the first trilogy drew the line after III and didn't care for IV and V, I may do the same. The problem with Lionsgate is that they improperly market Saw as horror. Saw is not horror, it's thriller/crime/drama/suspense category. It differentiates itself from other "horror" franchises, and that's what people hate about it. Because it's marketed as horror that requires no thought, frat boys go to individual Saw films thinking they're all interchangable and have no story/character/point and just have gore and boobies for their amusement, and then get pissed when threatened by plot, character and storyline that requires one to think. Then they say "Oh nooeez saw seriez is teh sucz!!1". I personally categorize it with Silence of the Lambs, Se7en, etc., not Hostel or Wolf Creek. But that's the thing about the media: they know the Saw films are different and unique and generally more sophisticated than many other things out there, and that uniquness draws attention, so people like Bill O'Reilly write articles about America being a "sick society" because of movies like Saw, because as D. Snyder said, "What better way to get attention than to go after an attention-getter?". That being said, people have the wrong idea about the Saw movies and their fanbase. Saw fans don't go to films hoping to be entertained by gore, they have higher standards. They want plot, story, characters, a message, philosophical subtext. But Saw fans will always have to fend for themselves as a persecuted minority, because they're not likely to be truly accepted as a norm anytime soon. Because if you can characterize Saw fans as sick and twisted as opposed to just having higher tastes than slasher films, you can convince people of anything.

The Dude - i agreed with you in your first comment - but then you went a little insane with the essays. its silly to have a fanbase coz... oh yeah that's right - they're films! Haters are allowed to hate them coz not everyone likes horrors especially gory saw films - but don't knock it until you've seen at least one - i recomend the first and the best.
