Jigsaw Blood Dry Tie In

“Jigsaw” Brings Back Halloween Blood Drive

With the release of Jigsaw, the first film in the Saw franchise since 2010's 3-D farewell The Final Chapter, the studio is bringing back its long-running blood drive. While capitalizing on a movie that features an absurd amount of blood, the donations collected from 2005 to 2009 saved about 360,000 lives.

Those who donate blood at an official site in October will receive a free ticket to Jigsaw, which opens October 27. Currently, there are no restrictions on blood types or history, though you will likely need to answer a few confidential questions with a nurse when you arrive.

Lionsgate has also released several posters featuring nurses from the film to promote the blood drive, which runs until October 24. Check JigsawBloodDrive.com for dates, times and locations.

About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
