Jigsaw: explaining the ending of the new Saw film

Rob Leane Oct 29, 2017

Spoilers! If you’re scratching your chin after watching Jigsaw, here’s our spoiler-filled attempt to explain it...

This article contains spoilers for Jigsaw.

The trailers for Jigsaw presented Saw fans with a mystery: if Tobin Bell’s John Kramer is dead, how come there is a new batch of Jigsaw victims just now beginning to emerge? Various fan theories were available, but in the end, only one of them could be true.

This is your final warning: after this image of our spoiler squirrel, we’re going deep into Jigsaw spoilers...

To continue the franchise even further following John Kramer’s death, Jigsaw uses two classic storytelling devices from the Saw playbook: the new film teaches us that Jigsaw had one more secret apprentice, and it uses flashbacks to showcase yet another house of horrors concocted, built and inhabited by John prior to his death.

Jigsaw Review

It’s been six Billy-less Halloweens since Saw 3D closed the book on John Kramer’s legacy, but now – after executive consideration (aka “Who wants more money?”) – the Spierig Brothers look to scare-up familiar box office treats this October with Jigsaw. Seven straight years of torture-porn bloodletting (2004-2010), six years off – writers Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg should have Loads of sanguine grotesqueness stockpiled. That’s Lionsgate’s hook, right? You wouldn’t reboot an iconic horror franchise without good reason. Shock audiences, defy expectations and explore uncharted grounds. Prove that we need Kramer and company back in our lives! Don’t just toy with the same franchise devices Saw fans are used to – exactly like y’all did.

For this eighth go-around, five subjects find themselves trapped in a barn under “Jigsaw’s” control. Wait – didn’t Jigsaw die in Saw III? We saw it! That’s the mystery

Jigsaw review

The Saw franchise comes back to life with Jigsaw. So: business as usual?

“You think it's over just because I am dead... The games have just begun.” That quote pretty much sums up the four Saw films that followed the gruesome demise of Tobin Bell’s John Kramer, which closed out Saw III. For four Halloweens in a row, writers used every trick they could to keep the series going post-Jigsaw-autopsy. They finally wrapped it up with the seventh flick in the franchise, 2010’s Saw 3D: The Final Chapter, which gave longtime fans of the series a satisfying point to end on: Cary Elwes returned as Doctor Gordon from the first film, putting an end to Jiggy’s last apprentice standing, the murdery Detective Hoffman played by Costas Mandylor. The games, at last, seemed to actually be over. But here we are, seven years later, with Jigsaw. A

‘Jigsaw’ Review: Dirs. The Spierig Brothers (2017)

Jigsaw review: The Saw franchise returns to try and rule Halloween once more with an eighth outing that ventures in a new direction.

Jigsaw review, Kat Hughes.

Jigsaw Review

Thirteen years ago we were introduced to a little indie horror film called Saw. The movie, directed by James Wan and written by Leigh Whannell, would go on to inspire a horror movement and a film franchise that had a stranglehold on the Halloween box office for years. Then in 2009, just as Saw VI hit movie theatres, another indie horror, Paranormal Activity, came along and stole the Halloween crown. There was a seventh and supposed final outing for the franchise in 2010, but for the last seven years, Halloween has been without a Saw film [sob]. However, Jigsaw is now about to be unleashed, but are audiences still interested in the franchise?

Will Jigsaw Make a Killing at the Halloween Box Office?

Will Jigsaw Make a Killing at the Halloween Box Office?
After New Line Cinema's It remake helped save the box office after the worst summer season in 15 years, box office pundits saw the box office slip into another slump this month, with three straight weekends of underperforming top movies such as Blade Runner 2049 ($32.7 million), Happy Death Day ($26.5 million) and last weekend's winner Boo 2! A Madea Halloween ($21.6 million). This dreadful month closes out with the return of a box office killer, Jigsaw, who hopes to breathe new life into the sagging box office this weekend, along with two more newcomers, Paramount's dark comedy Suburbicon and Universal's drama Thank You For Your Service. While it likely won't be another massive weekend, we're predicting that Jigsaw will end up on top with a projected $23.6 million.

The Saw franchise has never been a box office behemoth, with none of the first seven movies earning more than $90 million at the domestic box office,

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

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

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
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

Tobin Bell interview: Jigsaw, the Saw movies and more

Rob Leane Oct 25, 2017

Ahead of Jigsaw’s release, we chatted to John Kramer actor Tobin Bell about his journey with the franchise...

Warning: this interview contains spoilers for several Saw films, and one for Four Corners, but it’s spoiler-free with regards to Jigsaw.

The Saw franchise began, back in 2004, with Tobin Bell’s John Kramer – aka The Jigsaw Killer - playing dead on the floor of a grimy bathroom. Leigh Whannell and James Wan’s micro-budget horror/thriller spawned six blood-spattered sequels, birthing a franchise that became synonymous with Halloween cinema trips.

But then, in 2010, came Saw 3D. The seventh film in the torture-stuffed series presented itself as The Final Chapter, going full circle - revisiting the bathroom from Saw - and tying up all the loose ends of John’s legacy. John died in Saw III and was autopsied in Saw IV, and then Saw 3D presented a

Jigsaw Army Is on the March in Latest Saw 8 Posters
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)

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

Billy Returns in New Jigsaw Poster and Saw 8 TV Spot
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

Creepy Jigsaw Stills Tease Danger At Every Corner

“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

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?

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

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