Watching the 'Jigsaw' Twist Unfold Is an Existential Experience

Watching the 'Jigsaw' Twist Unfold Is an Existential Experience
[Warning: This story contains spoilers for Jigsaw]

Jigsaw, the seventh sequel in the seemingly deathless Saw horror series, enters theaters with a lot of baggage. And, to be fair, co-directors Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers, Predestination) and co-writers Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D, Sorority Row) do half-heartedly downplay some of the more tedious elements that have come to define the earlier Saw movies.

For starters, the "torture" aspect of the fatal death-trap "tests" that serial killer John "Jigsaw" Kramer (franchise staple Tobin Bell) puts his victims through is taken down several notches. Jigsaw features far fewer — and...

First Saw 8 Clip Revives One of Jigsaw's Most Twisted Games

Jigsaw, the upcoming eighth movie in the very successful horror series, arrives in theaters just in time for Halloween after a very long absence. Now, Lionsgate has released the first clip from Jigsaw, which reveals a deadly and dangerous, yet familiar looking, game.

The clip is one that has been teased in the Jigsaw trailer and TV spots, which sees five strangers with buckets on their heads, and the clip is appropriately titled Bucket Heads, chained up in a room facing impending doom. The very familiar voice of John Kramer, aka Jigsaw, plays over the intercom and reveals that a tribute of blood must be made in order for the unlucky subjects to survive. Then, the chains connected to their buckets start pulling them

The Game Begins In Two New Jigsaw TV Spots

After taking a lengthy – and much needed – hiatus from cinemas, the Saw franchise is finally ready to once again shed gallons of blood with its latest installment, Jigsaw. But despite featuring a returning Tobin Bell who’s set to reprise the role of John Kramer in some capacity, all signs point toward a copycat at play.

Who that may be remains unknown, of course, but it’s important to note that neither Costas Mandylor nor Cary Elwes are set to feature here, so either there’s a new player in town after all, or this series is about to take an unexpected supernatural turn. Regardless, we can’t wait to see what the final twist will be and now, with the film set to arrive later this month, Lionsgate has begun to ramp up the promotion.

Seen above and below are two brand new TV spots for the horror sequel

[Media] - "Jigsaw " New illustrated poster

Lionsgate has released a new illustrated poster for the upcoming "Jigsaw", the eighth film in the "Saw" horror franchise featuring the return of Tobin Bell. Like all of the films before it, Jigsaw will arrive just ahead of Halloween on October 27. The upcoming sequel, which fittingly comes seven years after "Saw: The Final Chapter", will star Laura Vandervoort ("Supergirl"), Hannah Emily Anderson, Brittany Allen, Clé Bennett ("Arrow"), Callum Keith Rennie ("Warcraft", "Battlestar Galactica"), Matt Passmore , Paul Braunstein ("The Thing"), Bonnie Siu ("Pacific Rim"), Sonia Dhillon Tully ("Brown Girl Begins") and Tobin Bell. The eighth Saw movie is directed by Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig ("Daybreakers") from a script by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg ("Piranha 3D",...

Sterile New Posters For Jigsaw Raise Awareness For A Good Cause

For a horror series renown for its grotesque, toe-curling deaths, Lionsgate’s Saw series actually helps save a lot of lives.

Since the franchise first flickered into life in 2004, the Saw Blood Drive has been a time-honored tradition that encourages film fans to donate blood at various locations across the United States, and it’ll be returning next month to commemorate the release of Jigsaw.

Coming by way of Daybreakers duo Michael and Peter Spierig, Jigsaw is a horror sequel that raises some reasonable question marks over Saw: The Final Chapter‘s evocative, and seemingly conclusive title. Nevertheless, John Kramer is back – or, at least, his disciples are back – for a horror spiel involving sick, twisted traps and mutilated corpses. Wanna’ play a game?

As for the Jigsaw Blood Drive, those brave participants who donate blood for what is undoubtedly a great cause will receive a free ticket to bear

Final Jigsaw Poster Will Give You The Chills

Are you ready for Jigsaw?

It is, in essence, the eighth entry into Lionsgate’s time-honored Saw franchise, one that’s coming by way of directing duo Michael and Peter Spierig. Best known for their work on Daybreakers, the Spierig siblings are still relatively new when it comes to Hollywood’s horror scene, but when asked to describe how they approached the cult series, Michael Spierig hinted that Jigsaw is “Saw for 2017.” That means it’s safe to expect more nightmare fuel and wildly inventive demented traps than you can shake a pig’s mask at, and though Lionsgate’s franchise has fallen by the wayside in recent years, in 2017, Halloween belongs to Jigsaw. And long may he reign.

Mind you, given that Tobin Bell’s sick, twisted psychopath bit the bullet in Saw III, it looks certain that John Kramer has gathered together a band of disciples to continue

Eighth Saw Movie Will Release As Jigsaw After All

Saw: Legacy has been given a facelift.

The eighth installment in Lionsgate’s time-honored horror franchise will release as Jigsaw on October 27th, 2017, signaling that John Kramer’s unspeakable reign of terror isn’t over yet. Tobin Bell’s demented serial killer actually bit the bullet during Saw III in 2006, and has since appeared in subsequent sequels via flashback. However, it would appear that Bell’s time in the Saw franchise is far from over, after the actor took to Twitter back in May to tease the seemingly inevitable return of The Jigsaw Killer.

Directed by franchise newcomers Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers) from a script by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D), the prequel-sequel formerly known as Saw: Legacy will feature a cast comprised of Mandela Van Peebles, Laura Vandervoort, Brittany Allen, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Josiah Black, Shaquan Lewis, Michael Bolsvert and James Gomez.

Exactly how Tobin Bell fits into that ensemble – if at all – is up for question. The official logline for Jigsaw points to a Kramer resurgence though, one that will either stem from the man himself or some form of disciple eager to continue the legacy for a new generation. Yikes!

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. Or has an apprentice picked up the mantle of Jigsaw, perhaps even someone inside the investigation?

It’s official: the eighth Saw film will launch into theatres on October 27th bearing the title Jigsaw. It’s currently been set opposite Cloverfield 3, a starry sci-fi pic that has been secretly masquerading as God Particle ever since Julius Onah’s thriller was shoehorned into Paramount and Bad Robot’s interconnected universe.

Jigsaw Revealed as Official Title for New Saw Movie

John Kramer's influence is far reaching and his desire to play deadly games seemingly never ceases, so it's fitting, then, that Lionsgate has officially revealed the title of the next Saw film to be Jigsaw.

Scheduled for an October 27th, 2017 release, Jigsaw is directed by Michael and Peter Spierig (Predestination, Daybreakers, Undead) from a screenplay by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger (who previously worked on the screenplays for Piranha 3D and Sorority Row). The franchise's producers Mark Burg, Gregg Hoffman, and Oren Koules are all returning for Jigsaw.

A sequel of sorts that's unsurprisingly rated R, Jigsaw is set in the cinematic world created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell, which kicked off with the 2003 short film Saw, followed by a feature film version of the same name that made a big impact on the modern horror scene and was continued in six sequels.

The cast of Jigsaw includes Mandela Van Peebles, Laura Vandervoort, Hannah Anderson, and Brittany Allen, with Tobin Bell potentially returning to reprise his role as John Kramer, aka Jigsaw.

We'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed. In the meantime, let us know what you hope to see in Jigsaw, and check out the teaser image shared on the official Saw Facebook page below:

Summer To The Rescue, Sort Of: 13 May-august Movies I Want To See

Summer is upon us. That is, summer as defined by movie studios which, in the 40 years since Star Wars was released, on May 25, 1977, have valiantly tried to stretch the boundaries of summer, content-wise, from the traditional June-July-August definition to include the other nine months of the year as well. (Mission pretty much accomplished, gentlemen. Thank you for your efforts.) As far as the actual summer movie season, it’s now more or less accepted that everything starts on the first weekend of May, and so it most certainly is this year. In case you hadn’t heard, a modest little picture called Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 debuts this weekend at an art house near you, and everyone you know, including you, have probably already bought advance tickets to see it. Me, I’m less similarly inclined. Despite my raised expectations from reviews and audience reports, I found the

Lionsgate snags rights to James Wan's Smart House

Kayti Burt Apr 21, 2017

Smart House, a new horror from The Conjuring's James Wan, is about a family placed in a very special kind of witness protection...

Lionsgate has bought the rights to Smart House, a feature film idea from Saw and Furious 7 director James Wan, who is attached to produced the horror.

According to Variety, the film is based on an original idea from Wan about a family placed in witness protection in a smart house, capable of fighting off any attacks (hopefully). When a group of assassins discover the location of the family, the smart house's capabilities are put to the test.

Alexandre Aja is attached to direct the film. Aja is best known for his horror work on Horns, Piranha 3D, and The Hills Have Eyes. Smart House seems right up his alley, and will presumably skew more horror than action thriller. The script comes from Brad Keene,
