For the first time in seven years we’ve got a new SAW film to look forward to this Halloween season, and we can be pretty sure a whole lot of blood will be shed.
There’s a lot revealed in these new Jigsaw TV spots. Not only do we learn that John Kramer’s grave is going to be dug up, but we catch a glimpse at a handful of new and old traps. I’m getting the feeling this is another interstitial sequel that will play with various timelines.
In the new film, out October 27…
After a series of murders bearing all the markings of the Jigsaw killer, law enforcement find themselves chasing the ghost of a man dead for over a decade and embroiled in a new game that’s only just begun. Is John Kramer back from the dead to remind the world to be grateful for the gift of life? Or is this a trap set by a killer with designs of their own?
The new chapter has been rated “R” for “Grisly Bloody Violence and Torture.”
We understand that neither Costas Mandylor nor Cary Elwes will be returning to play their respective characters, who both ended up becoming Jigsaw apprentices in earlier installments. As for the original Jigsaw himself, Tobin Bell will be back in some capacity.
The cast also includes Mandela Van Peebles, Laura Vandervoort, Brittany Allen, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Josiah Black, Shaquan Lewis, Michael Bolsvert, and James Gomez.
Jigsaw was written by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger (Piranha 3D and Sorority Row). In the director’s chairs were the Spierig brothers, Peter and Michael, who brought us Daybreakers and Predestination.
