Lionsgate Bringing 'Saw' Back to Theaters for One Week on Halloween

August 27, 2014


Briefly: If you feel like Halloween is lacking in the horror department this year, don't worry, Lionsgate has your back. For the 10th anniversary of the original Saw, the horror film that spawned a drawn out franchise, Lionsgate is sending the first film back to theaters on Halloween for just one week only. Since the movie has been out for 10 years, there might be new horror fans who are old enough to partake in the franchise now and have never seen any of the films. Saw returns on October 31st with some special screenings on Thursday, October 30th as well. So feel free to go see James Wan and Leigh Whannel's original horror film that launched their big empire that has come to life in Insidious and The Conjuring.

The first was good. So cool.

And they even defied all odds and managed to make a trilogy that all maintained a high quality. Saw, Saw II, and Saw III are like the Lord of the Rings of horror films. High quality, inter-connected, etc etc After that they really started to taper off. BUT usually with horror franchises, you are lucky to get one or two that delivers, let alone 3.

I liked Saw II it had a fairly decent twist. Saw's twist was fantastic.

6 was the best of all of them I thought.

In general, even to be a 7 film is the best horror film series that ran that long and maintained such a consistent level of quality and continuity. Keep in mind, this is horror we are talking about. Each film had a few cast members or elements that carried over from a previous film. When you look at long franchises like Halloween, Friday the 13th, Child's Play, A Nightmare on Elm Street...they get very segmented, disjointed, and ultimately really decline in quality. I might like the first 3 the most, but overall, I enjoy all 7, and feel like each one had some kind of twist or spin that really took it above the average horror movie...and the final film brought it full circle in a cool way. So yeah, even if the first is 'great', the first 3 are 'very very good' and the rest are just 'good or really good' is still the overall strongest long running horror franchise in my book.

The premise of Saw would actually make for a great reality show.

Get Nathan Fielder on it.

I loved the first SAW, but I will not see it again in theaters. I can't believe it has been 10 years.

In an effort to kickstart interest in SAW 8, no doubt.

"It's the ruuules!"

Not trolling, I'm just stunned there are people that liked this film. I saw it in the theatre when it first came out and the audience was laughing at how silly it was.
