The trailer for the eighth film in the Saw franchise, Jigsaw, is finally here and it is insane. Jigsaw looks to me the most intense film of the franchise since the original film was release in 2004.
In the film, 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 (Tobin Bell), the man known as Jigsaw. The problem is, Jigsaw has been dead for over a decade.
The duo of Michael and Peter Spierig will be in the director’s chairs for the film penned by Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger. The Spierigs are also behind the upcoming genre films Winchester and The Dark Crystal sequel.
Mandela Van Peebles, Hannah Anderson, Laura Vandervoort, Callum Keith Rennie, Brittany Allen, Hannah Anderson, Matt Passmore, Josiah Black, Michael Bolsvert, Shaquan Lewis, and James Gomez will co-star in the film guaranteed to be as gruesome as its predecessors. Mark Burg, Gregg Hoffman, and Oren Koules who produced all seven of the previous films will produce Jigsaw as well.
The first trailer, which was released moments ago, features new, complex traps and a lot of victims. I have to say, the trailer looks absolutely fantastic. It is everything we had hoped for.
Jigsaw will open in theaters nationwide on October 27, 2017 from Lionsgate.
