The Master Returns in First Trailer for 'Jigsaw' Arriving This October
"You want mercy? Play by the rules." Lionsgate has revealed the first trailer for the next Saw movie, titled simply Jigsaw, referring to the original mastermind behind all the deadly traps and torture. Even though he supposedly died in one of the earlier movies, this title and the new trailer makes me wonder if Jigsaw (played by Tobin Bell) is somehow back from the dead. The cast this time includes Laura Vandervoort, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Brittany Allen, and others. Even though we already had a 3D Saw recently, this one is supposedly taking Jigaw's "signature brand of twisted scenarios to the next level." This didn't look so bad until the lasers on the head trap, then I rolled my eyes.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Michael & Peter Spierig's Jigsaw, direct from YouTube:
Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one man: John Kramer. But how can this be? The man known as Jigsaw has been dead for over a decade. Jigsaw is directed by German filmmaking brothers Michael Spierig & Peter Spierig, of the films Undead, Daybreakers, and Predestination previously. The screenplay is written by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg; based on the series originally created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell (the first Saw film premiered at Sundance in 2004). Lionsgate will release the Spierig Brothers' Jigsaw in theaters everywhere starting on October 27th this fall, just in time for Halloween. Who's ready for more?
Regardless of everything that happened with this franchise (being milked and terrible beyond the 3rd film), the original Saw is still one of the best horror movies of the last years. This doesn't look it will bring the franchise back to its roots though

It's hard to recapture the glory when the world class talent that is James Wan is gone and been replaced by B/C list talent.

I wish they would have given the keys over to some new up and coming director instead of churning out another bad copy of a bad copy.

Well, they are not playing this games with politicians. I guess, that's why those films have become so bad with time ...

The first Saw worked because it was simple and genius. Even the second one was great. Sadly this looks like the more complicated blood splattering latter ones which sucked ass.

Looks good, but Roy Orbison singing in the trailer really made it.
