First ‘Jigsaw’ Clip Begins a New Game That Will End in Bloodshed

Lionsgate’s first official clip from Jigsaw, in theaters October 27th, appears to set the stage for the eighth SAW film. Several people awaken with buckets on their heads and chains around their neck. Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) introduces the “game” and then pulls the proverbial lever that begins to pull them to a wall that’s covered in saws. How perfect.

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 brothersPeter and Michael, who brought us Daybreakers and Predestination.

    Bloodshed? In a saw movie. Come on now.

  • Mike Lawrence

    Can’t wait!

  • Jay Bennett

    Its so great hearing Tobin again

    The original was… original. The rest have been crap

    • As original as your “sequels suck” every time Saw gets an article… The franchise has only ONE crap film, and it’s “Saw 3D”

      • HarryIsAScam

        5-3d sucked

        • Yep. 4 and 6 weren’t too bad, but 5 and 3D were just terrible. Anything after 3 was dragging the series out unnecessarily and Jigsaw will probably be more of the same.

            I can’t think of one good movie that twisted pictures made other than the original Saw. When I see their logo pop up, I change the channel.

        You probably liked H20 too…. The atmosphere, acting and overt “Hey, let’s just do more violence to one up ourselves” makes for nothing but horror junk food in the Saw sequels. It’s basically horror movies for teenage boys.

      Yes, but funny.

    With that grimy cinematography completely absent, this film looks more like a commercial or at best a straight to DVD movie.

    This looks like it’s just gonna be the same premise of the 5th movie only gorier (not complaining tho). Also note if u look at the far end, one game player is asleep lol u know he dead
