First Saw 8 Clip Revives One of Jigsaw's Most Twisted Games

18 October 2017 3:13 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Even though Lionsgate hasn't inundated us with marketing for the movie, a brand new entry in the Saw franchise is on the way. And very soon. Jigsaw, the upcoming eighth movie in the very successful horror series, arrives in theaters just in time for Halloween after a very long absence. Now, Lionsgate has released the first clip from Jigsaw, which reveals a deadly and dangerous, yet familiar looking, game.

The clip is one that has been teased in the Jigsaw trailer and TV spots, which sees five strangers with buckets on their heads, and the clip is appropriately titled Bucket Heads, chained up in a room facing impending doom. The very familiar voice of John Kramer, aka Jigsaw, plays over the intercom and reveals that a tribute of blood must be made in order for the unlucky subjects to survive. Then, the chains connected to their buckets start pulling them »

First Jigsaw Clip Asks For An Offering Of Blood

17 October 2017 5:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Are you ready for Jigsaw?

It is, in essence, the eighth entry into Lionsgate’s time-honored Saw franchise, one that’s coming by way of directing duo Michael and Peter Spierig. Best known for their work on Daybreakers, the Spierig siblings are still relatively new when it comes to Hollywood’s horror scene, but when asked to describe how they approached the cult series, Michael Spierig hinted that Jigsaw is “Saw for 2017.” That means it’s safe to expect more nightmare fuel and wildly inventive demented traps than you can shake a pig’s mask at, and though Lionsgate’s franchise has fallen by the wayside in recent years, in 2017, Halloween belongs to Jigsaw. And long may he reign.

Mind you, given that Tobin Bell’s sick, twisted psychopath bit the bullet in Saw III, it looks certain that John Kramer has gathered together a band of disciples to continue »

Relive Jigsaw's Killer Legacy in New Saw Recap Video

16 October 2017 11:56 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been a long time coming, but Saw 8 is just around the corner. Despite the fact that Saw: The Final Chapter promised an end to the twisted murder games, Lionsgate couldn't resist giving us another installment of the legendary horror franchise this Halloween season. In order to scare up some excitement, the studio has released a brand new featurette for Jigsaw, which recaps the entire Saw franchise one gruesome kill at a time.

The featurette, titled The Philosophy of Jigsaw, reviews the reason that Tobin Bell's serial killer does what he does. As John Kramer reminds us in this video, "Those who don't appreciate life don't deserve it." The video opens up with a quick reminder of this exact philosophy, but then it transitions into a rapid-fire recap of some of the most iconic traps and kills, in order, from the entire franchise, leading up to some of the »

Jigsaw Army Is on the March in Latest Saw 8 Posters

16 September 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just a month and a half left until Saw 8, which is also being called Jigsaw, Lionsgate has released a new series of posters revealing some of the members of Jigsaw's army. For fans on social media, you can now tweet with the hashtag #JigsawSavedMe to unlock a new Jigsaw mask emoji on Twitter. While it remains to be seen if any more footage will be released between now and Halloween, this is certainly shaping up to be one of this fall's most anticipated horror movies.

The posters feature a number of unidentified characters, both male and female, who seemingly swear their allegiance to the iconic Jigsaw. Each character has their face painted as the now-iconic Jigsaw doll Billy, with the posters featuring brief taglines such as, "He Is Everything, "He Is Everyone" and "He Is Everywhere," alluding to the legacy that the late John Kramer (Tobin Bell) left behind, »

DVD Review – The Evil Within (2017)

4 September 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Evil Within, 2017.

Directed by Andrew Getty.

Starring Frederick Koehler, Sean Patrick Flanery, Brianna Brown, Michael Berryman, Kim Darby, and Dina Meyer.

Synopsis:

A mentally handicapped man is driven to murder by his reflection in an antique mirror.

The Evil Within is a movie that arrives on the scene with a reputation and a lot of baggage, thanks mainly to its creative force Andrew Getty beginning production on it in 2002, taking six years to shoot it and a further seven to edit it to his liking before his untimely death in 2015. The film was then completed by producer Michael Luceri and a mere 15 years after initial production began the final result is here, so was it worth the wait?

Well, if truth be told it probably wasn’t worth putting any major plans on hold to be able to watch it but The Evil Within is not without merit. The »

Billy Returns in New Jigsaw Poster and Saw 8 TV Spot

18 August 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Do you want to play a game? If you answered yes, then you've come to the right place. Jigsaw, the upcoming eighth installment of the Saw franchise, is just around the corner. As such, Lionsgate is starting to ramp up the marketing campaign, both domestically and abroad. With that, a brand new Japanese poster and TV spot for Jigsaw have been revealed, with the poster easily being the best one we've seen yet.

The official Japanese Jigsaw Twitter account revealed the new poster, which brings back the familiar Billy puppet, who is lingering in the background of this image. The previous posters didn't bring back the iconic bit of imagery, but the trailer that was revealed during San Diego Comic-Con did bring the creepy puppet back into the fold. Billy, which has certainly earned his place among the pantheon of horror puppets, has been a staple of the franchise since the very first Saw movie. »

A Glowering John Kramer Looms Over Jigsaw’s Comic-Con Poster

21 July 2017 11:29 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Jigsaw Killer gets a new lease of life – quite literally, as it were – in this blood-red Sdcc poster for Jigsaw.

It is, in essence, the eighth entry into Lionsgate’s time-honored Saw franchise, one that’s coming by way of directing duo Michael and Peter Spierig. Best known for their work on Daybreakers, the Spierig siblings are still relatively new when it comes to Hollywood’s horror scene, but when asked to describe how they approached the cult series, Michael Spierig hinted that Jigsaw is “Saw for 2017.” That means it’s safe to expect more nightmare fuel and wildly inventive demented traps than you can shake a pig’s mask at, and though Lionsgate’s franchise has fallen by the wayside in recent years, in 2017, Halloween belongs to Jigsaw.

Creepy Jigsaw Stills Tease Danger At Every Corner

21 July 2017 5:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Become Jigsaw.”

Fueling rumors that Michael and Peter Spierig’s upcoming horror sequel focuses on John Kramer’s twisted disciples, and not the man himself, yesterday Lionsgate rolled out a slew of stark one-sheets for Jigsaw and, well, let’s just say they weren’t your average character posters. Rather than placing the spotlight on the film’s ensemble cast, each portrait featured a loyal follower of Kramer’s, replete with blood-drenched pig mask to drive the point home: these protégés intend to bring about a new reign of terror, and in the fallout of Jigsaw‘s first teaser trailer, horror fans are already reeling at the wild traps in store.

Working from a script composed by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, the Spierig Brothers have been tasked with pumping fresh blood into one of horror’s modern-day favorites, and when Michael Spierig was asked to deliver an elevator pitch for Jigsaw, »

First Trailer for ‘Jigsaw’ – Saw Franchise Returns for Halloween

21 July 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Josh Aruliah

The Saw franchise will be returning to our cinemas this Halloween, with the first trailer for ‘Jigsaw’ out, meaning that ‘Saw 3D: The Final Chapter’ is no longer the final chapter…

The film picks up about 10 years later than the apparent death (in ‘Saw III’) of the Jigsaw Killer, John Kramer (Tobin Bell). New, gruesome murders are being discovered around the city, with the evidence from the investigation pointing to Jigsaw. The question is who is this killer? Is Jigsaw still alive or is there a copycat? It is something for the police to figure out.

Michael Spierig, one of the directors, has said that this outing will be more fun and less vicious compared to the previous films:

“We’ve got some pretty wild traps in the film — we don’t shy away from the gore. It’s such a perfect Halloween scarefest. It’s perhaps »

Can You Make It Through the Jigsaw Trailer Without Looking Away?

20 July 2017 12:35 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's been seven years since Saw 3D (the seventh and most recent Saw film) hit theaters. Way back then, we thought we'd seen everything there was to see. How many more grisly, f*cked up traps and scenarios could a Jigsaw killer invent? As it turns out, quite a few. This week teased another entry in 2017's epic horror movie slate: the eighth film in the Saw franchise, aptly titled Jigsaw. There's plenty of screaming and bleeding in the two-minute teaser, and there's a big mystery, too: who's doing the dirty work? The original Jigsaw killer, John Kramer, dies in Saw III, but the trailer seems to suggest he's somehow back from the dead. Is it possible? Is Detective Hoffman somehow still alive? And how will Dr. Gordon play into everything? We'll have to wait until Oct. 27 to find out. »

‘Jigsaw’ Trailer: The Twisted Game Master is Back From Beyond the Grave

20 July 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Tobin Bell‘s twisted character Jigsaw, aka John Kramer, died in 2006’s Saw III, but his impact is still being felt ten years after the events of 2010’s now-incorrectly-named Saw: The Final Chapter. Kramer is somehow back to his old ways in Jigsaw, Lionsgate’s first sequel to the franchise in seven years, and that means more gruesome traps, more elaborate […]

‘Jigsaw’: First Trailer Resurrects a Deadly Threat

20 July 2017 9:58 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fans of the Saw franchise, originally created by neo-horror veterans James Wan and Leigh Whannell, will find a lot of familiar territory in the first trailer for the eighth installment, Jigsaw. That's not just because some of the deadly traps and manipulative measures used in the previous seven films make an appearance here, but because the title killer himself appears to be behind a new rash of gruesome guilt-kills. The investigators into these serial killings are flummoxed by this fact, considering that John Kramer (Tobin Bell) was killed years ago in Saw III. This twist on the … »

Halloween Belongs To Jigsaw In This Horrifying First Trailer For Saw Sequel

20 July 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Remember when Jigsaw co-director Michael Spierig (Daybreakers) promised some “pretty wild traps” ahead of October’s Saw sequel?

Well, thanks to the film’s blood-curdling first trailer, we now have an idea of the horrors in store, and it seems as though the twisted legacy of John Kramer has taken on a new form. Tobin Bell’s demented serial killer actually bit the bullet during Saw III in 2006, so Michael and Peter Spierig have been quick to play down talk of Bell returning – either via flashback or some form of unexpected appearance. That doesn’t necessarily mean that a cameo is completely out of the question though – the film is called Jigsaw, after all – particularly when you consider the fact that John Kramer’s voice can be heard in today’s first-look teaser. “The truth will set you free.”

From there, the nightmare-inducing footage cuts to some form of containment »

New Poster For Jigsaw Revealed Ahead Of San Diego Comic-Con

8 July 2017 10:52 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Throughout the years there has always been franchises in horror who dominate the the genre. For example, we have Freddy in A Nightmare on Elm Street, Chucky in Child's Play and Jason in Friday the 13th. Besides franchises like The Conjuring, the most dominating horror franchise has to be Saw. It's very interesting that James Wan had a part in creating both of them. The first film earned over $100 million worldwide on a budget of only $1.2 million, this spawned six sequels to this day.

The not so secret to making these films successful was to follow the path of the first Saw film, which was to keep the budget low. When Saw VI only made $70 million, it was Ok because it only cost $11 million to make. The last film that the franchise released, Saw 3D, had really bad critical and fan reception. For the time many of us thought that »

Saw 8: Legacy Gets Retitled Jigsaw, New Logo Unveiled

21 June 2017 9:16 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Oh, what a Halloween we'll have this year. There are plenty of ghouls and goblins heading towards the local cinema. But perhaps more awaited is the return of Jigsaw! Yes, John Kramer will be back this October as the Saw legacy continues. The eighth movie in the series, this latest installment promises to rejuvenate the horror franchise after laying dormant for several years. Today, we have the official logo along with these words from Lionsgate.

"One of the highest grossing Horror franchises of all time is back, taking the Jigsaw killer's signature brand of twisted scenarios to the next level."

As previously reported, Jigsaw will be in theaters the weekend of Halloween, starting October 27, 2017. Lionsgate did not offer any more on the story, but we do have some ideas about where this particular installment is heading. The story takes place seven years after Saw: The Final Chapter. And it stars Laura Vandervoort (Bitten, Smallville) and Hannah Anderson (Shoot the Messenger, Lizzie Borden Took an Ax) in the leads.

It was previously reported that Tobin Bell will be back as the main villain John Kramer, albeit via flashbacks as he's been dead since the third Saw movie, unless there is something sinister afoot that we don't yet know. Michael and Peter Spierig of Daybreakers fame are helming this latest installment. Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg are penning the screenplay with help from original creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell. Producers include Mark Burg, Gregg Hoffman, and Oren Koules.

As far as John Kramer is concerned, early reports on the film indicated that he'll be back in a limited capacity. A glorified cameo. He is the Mickey Mouse of this saga, introduced 14 years ago, at a time when Saw was considered a breakthrough in the horror genre. It not only spawned 6 sequels and healthy filmmaking careers for James Wan and Leigh Whannell, but it also started a Halloween tradition that ran straight through for seven very successful years. For a couple of years, Paranormal Activity stood in its place while it hibernated. But now the iconic series is raring and ready to go, with its pig masks back in place.

Set photos revealed that there will be some grave robbing going down in the opening moments of this next installment. And these bodies turn up all over the city. Each corpse has met their own unique demise. An investigation gets underway. And all fingers point to John Kramer, aka Jigsaw. But how can this be? Jigsaw has been dead for more than a decade. The belief is that an apprentice has stepped in to pick up the mantle left behind by Kramer. And the clues may lead to someone embedded within the investigation. Neither Costas Mandylor nor Cary Elwes, both exposed as Kramer apprentices in past installments, are returning in Jigsaw, unless their appearance is planned as a surprise for fans. Though not officially confirmed by Lionsgate, the rest of the cast is believed to include Mandela Van Peebles, Brittany Allen, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Josiah Black, Shaquan Lewis, Michael Bolsvert, and James Gomez.

Jon Cor's Ryan from the last installment, 2010's Saw 3D, is rumored to be back in this sequel. Though it isn't known how much time he gets in the overall plot. Ryan was seen in the opening trap with Sebastian Pigot's Brad in Saw 7. Writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan previously revealed in that film's commentary track for the Blu-ray and DVD release, that it was Ryan and Brad who were wearing the pig masks at the end of the film, leading to speculation they may be the ones who unearth Jigsaw's grave in this new installment. Jigsaw died in Saw III, but he has been featured through flashbacks in ever subsequent Saw movie. With Tobin Bell returning here, it sounds like Saw fans are in for an old school treat that will terrorize their soul. While we await the first teaser trailer, take a look at the official logo. »

Eighth Saw Movie Will Release As Jigsaw After All

21 June 2017 7:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Saw: Legacy has been given a facelift.

The eighth installment in Lionsgate’s time-honored horror franchise will release as Jigsaw on October 27th, 2017, signaling that John Kramer’s unspeakable reign of terror isn’t over yet. Tobin Bell’s demented serial killer actually bit the bullet during Saw III in 2006, and has since appeared in subsequent sequels via flashback. However, it would appear that Bell’s time in the Saw franchise is far from over, after the actor took to Twitter back in May to tease the seemingly inevitable return of The Jigsaw Killer.

Directed by franchise newcomers Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers) from a script by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D), the prequel-sequel formerly known as Saw: Legacy will feature a cast comprised of Mandela Van Peebles, Laura Vandervoort, Brittany Allen, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Josiah Black, Shaquan Lewis, Michael Bolsvert and James Gomez.

Exactly how Tobin Bell fits into that ensemble – if at all – is up for question. The official logline for Jigsaw points to a Kramer resurgence though, one that will either stem from the man himself or some form of disciple eager to continue the legacy for a new generation. Yikes!

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. But how can this be? The man known as Jigsaw has been dead for over a decade. Or has an apprentice picked up the mantle of Jigsaw, perhaps even someone inside the investigation?

It’s official: the eighth Saw film will launch into theatres on October 27th bearing the title Jigsaw. It’s currently been set opposite Cloverfield 3, a starry sci-fi pic that has been secretly masquerading as God Particle ever since Julius Onah’s thriller was shoehorned into Paramount and Bad Robot’s interconnected universe. »

Saw 8 Actor Teases Billy's Return and a Roller Coaster Trap?

25 March 2017 10:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It was revealed just a few weeks ago that Tobin Bell is returning to reprise his iconic role as John Kramer in Saw Legacy. The Jigsaw actor has now shared the first look at Billy along with teasing what could be one of the greatest Saw traps ever committed to the screen. Yes, it looks like Jigsaw will be using a rollercoaster to torment his victims in this latest Saw sequel. The actor had this to say on Twitter.

"Next time you're on a roller coaster...look up. #SawLegacy"

There is little else revealed about the photo. Billy is Jigsaw's cruel puppet that he uses to antagonize those he needs to teach a lesson to. And it appears Billy won't be sanctioned off in a basement somewhere. The image below hints at a brighter, sunnier Saw movie. Or perhaps Tobin Bell was just out, enjoying the day at Six Flags, »

Jigsaw Will Return in Saw: Legacy

2 March 2017 10:24 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jigsaw is back, baby! Yes, it has been confirmed that Tobin Bell will reprise his role as the infamous serial killer with a game to play in this year's Halloween release Saw Legacy. But don't expect him to dominate the movie, as the actor is only expected to be back in a limited capacity.

When it first arrived over 14 years ago, Saw was considered a groundbreaking film in the horror genre. And it spawned 6 sequels, bringing the saga to an end in 2010. For seven years, it was a Halloween tradition. That tradition returns this October 27 with an all-new installment of the iconic series. But what is this next chapter about? And is it a sequel or a reboot?

Bloody Disgusting has the answer with exclusive new plot details and the confirmation that Tobin Bell will be crawling out of that proverbial grave at least one more time to torture a few well-deserving individuals. »
