Jigsaw is back - and everything is right in the world.
Set to reboot the franchise that used to own Halloween, Lionsgate has just dropped the first trailer for Jigsaw, the eighth installment in the highly popular (and profitable) Saw franchise.
The trailer, which takes us back to the old school tricks of John Kramer (aka Jigsaw), picks up over a decade after the death of the eponymous Jigsaw killer. But with the bodies stacking up, it appears that Jigsaw’s tactics aren’t dead just yet.
At one point we see a group of “players” chained to a wall, opposite a set of circle saws. “He said it was a game,” one girl screams. “Games can be won,” another states.
Though the trailer doesn’t reveal whether the original killer (played by Tobin Bell) is behind the new string of murders, it does appear to be a bit more relaxed than its dark predecessor. Even so, the main question still remains: is the world ready for more Jigsaw? Let’s hope so.
Directed by Michael and Peter Spierig, Jigsaw is set to retake Halloween when it opens on October 27.
