Lionsgate is aiming to bring Jigsaw back from the grave for yet another deadly game, with the studio actively developing Saw VIII. The last entry in the franchise, Saw 3D, hit theaters in October 2010.
The studio is currently seeking a new direction for the horror soap opera, which essentially paved the way for micro-budget thrillers such as Paranormal Activity and The Purge. There was speculation that Lionsgate wanted to reboot the entire concept, although insiders claim the studio wants to simply continue Jigsaw's story with yet another true sequel.
Lionsgate is reportedly in no rush to bring Jigsaw back to theaters, taking its time in seeking a new direction for the profitable horror series. It isn't known if they plan to make this next project in 3D or not.
October is one of my favorite months and that’s partly due to Halloween and the increased interest in the horror genre. From books to movies to everything in between, in October I’m ready for a good scare. Since folks are typically more acceptable of things that go bump in the night around Halloween, I wanted to offer up my Top 10 Horror Movie Villains of All Time. Some are iconic, and some not as much. The only thing that matters is that when I think horror, these ten baddies jump right to the front of the line for me. You may disagree with some choices, or even notice some that I missed. Feel free to let me know.

Villains are an essential part of genre cinema. Though scores of filmmakers have attempted to create truly great villains throughout the history of film, only a few have succeeded in achieving this difficult goal.
This article will take a look at the great film villains of the 2000’s.
The criteria for this article is the same as my previous articles Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1970’s, Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1980’s and Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1990’s: the villains must be from live-action films only, and must pose some type of direct or indirect lethal threat. The villains can be either individuals or small groups that act as one unit. The villains must be human or human in appearance. Also, individuals who are the central protagonists/antiheroes of their respective films were excluded.

No one at the time could predict the cultural impact of moving pictures and the extent to which the narrative form would come to life on them. Yet more importantly their capacity for us to vicariously confront our fear towards death through the personages of Lon Chaney (Phantom of the Opera 1925) and John Barrymore (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde 1920) then Bela Lugosi (Dracula 1931) and Boris Karloff (Frankenstein 1931) all the way to Tobin Bell (Saw) would alter human behavior irrevocably. »

There’s nothing like a great movie plot twist; it can help to cement a film in the annals of classic cinema by shocking audiences and making them think. A great twist will feel natural to the narrative and make the audience feel stupid for not realising before, whereas a bad twist will seem shoehorned and played purely for shock value. Whether the twists featured in this list were good or not, they’re ones that just about everyone who was paying attention should have seen coming.
Sure, some of us might have been easier able to guess the twist by looking towards marketing and the hype train surrounding the film, but all things considered, they really are ludicrously obvious.
Here are 10 movie plot twists everyone saw coming…
