Giveaway: Win 'Saw' 10th Anniversary Prizes

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans can re-live the sheer terror from director James Wan' Saw when the modern horror-classic is re-released in theaters for one week only, starting October 31, to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of its initial release. Five years before Paranormal Activity helped spawn the "micro-budget" genre, Saw took audiences by storm, with this thriller that cost just $1.2 million to make, taking in over $100 million worldwide, and spawning a franchise that included six successful sequels.

Saw starred Leigh Whannell (who co-wrote the script with James Wan) and Cary Elwes as two strangers who wake up trapped in a horrifying dungeon, as they are forced to follow the intricate rules of a killer known only as Jigsaw, if they want to make it out alive.

To help celebrate this 10th Anniversary re-release, we have a giveaway lined up where fans can win five Saw collectible posters, three of which you can see below, »

Marking the upcoming event is another poster featuring the dreaded bear trap headgear.

New 'Saw' Movie Planned; Original Creators May Return

15 October 2014 6:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The original 2004 horror classic Saw is returning to theaters this Halloween for its tenth anniversary celebration. Shock Till You Drop recently sat down with producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules, and it was soon revealed that an all-new Saw is in the planning stages with the original creators.

While first-time director James Wan never jumped behind the camera for any of the sequels, he did go onto make his mark with other horror hits and action thrillers including the franchise spawning Insidious and The Conjuring, as well as Death Sentence and the upcoming Fast & Furious 7. His writing partner Leigh Whannell has done equally as well, writing and producing a number of box office hits, appearing in some of them as an actor, and setting out to make his directorial debut with Insidious Chapter 3. Now, it sounds like the duo are ready to return to the one that started it all. »

Film Review: ‘Teen Lust’

15 October 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A conspicuously uninspired mix of teen-sex comedy and horror-thriller tropes, “Teen Lust” may amuse Cary Elwes fans who yearn to see the cult-fave “Princess Bride” star give a performance that could be labeled Swift’s Premium and sold by the pound. Nothing else suggests a future for this Canadian-produced trifle beyond niche festivals and home-screen platforms.

The strained silliness revolves around Neil (Jesse Carere), a hormonally inflamed but hopelessly virginal high schooler whose innocence is highly regarded, and closely monitored, by his straight-laced parents (Emmanuelle Vaugier, Jon Dore). And with good reason: Mom and Dad are devout Satanists who have promised the leader (Elwes) of their cult that Neil can be offered as an undefiled human sacrifice — for the greater good of the Prince of Darkness — on the clueless youth’s 18th birthday.

Naturally, Neil rebels once he gets wind of what’s in store for him. And, just as naturally, »

Cary Elwes Says As You Wish to Fans With a Behind-the-Scenes Look at The Princess Bride

14 October 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Cary Elwes hasn't changed much in the 27 years since filming The Princess Bride. He's still got a mess of blond hair and "eyes like the sea after a storm," which now crinkle slightly when he smiles, but Elwes pretty much remains the spitting image of his iconic character, farm boy-turned-pirate Westley. When we meet, Elwes seems to be channeling a contemporary Man in Black, wearing a leather jacket, a Rolling Stone T, and Chuck Taylors. He's surprisingly soft-spoken, but articulate, and is nothing but effusive about his time working on The Princess Bride. After feeling an overwhelming sense of nostalgia during the film's 25th anniversary celebration at Lincoln Center in 2012, Elwes decided to pen his own tribute (along with Joe Layden) to »

This week, as soon as Cary Elwes revealed he had written a book detailing what it was like making The Princess Bride, we started to remember everything we loved about the movie in the first place. Most obviously, we got all nostalgic over all the most quotable moments, which of course, still fit perfectly into your everyday life in wonderful ways. But then we got to thinking, what happened to all the film's actors? Turns out, they've been right under our noses all this time. Keep scrolling to see where you've definitely seen the entire cast before and just didn't make the connection. »

Cary Elwes Reveals a Behind-the-Scenes Look at The Princess Bride

13 October 2014 8:53 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Twenty-seven years after The Princess Bride hit theaters, barely made a dent, then slowly achieved cult-hit status, star Cary Elwes has written a book about the famous film. As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales From the Making of The Princess Bride will hit shelves this week, and fans should be pleased with the behind-the-scenes stories from the set. Elwes did an interview with NPR about the book, in which he revealed some tidbits about his experience. Here's the exact moment he realized the movie was a success. "I was in a restaurant in New York and I was ordering a hamburger. The waitress said, 'How do you want that done?' And I said, 'Medium rare.' And she said, 'As you wish.' And I looked up at her and I went, 'What did you just say?!' And she winked and walked off. And I thought, 'Oh!' And so it was a wonderful, »

A Halloween tradition returns next month as the original Saw heads back to theaters for a one-week engagement in celebration of its 10th anniversary starting October 31st.

Relive the horror of what the Guinness Book of World Records hails as the "Most Successful Horror Franchise" of all time with a brand new trailer and poster in celebration of Jigaw's triumphant return.
