Marcus Dunstan reveals the identity of Doctor Gordon’s accomplices in ‘Saw VII’. Be warned – this post contains spoilers for the ‘Saw’ franchise.
It’s October, the month of the horror film, meaning it won’t be long until a re-watch of the Saw movies is underway. It’s a solid franchise, though we couldn’t help but feel a little cheated by that ending in Saw VII. Hoffman is hunted down by unknown assailants, one of whom is identified as Doctor Gordon, the others are never unmasked. It’s a mystery that has bugged this writer for several years and we finally now have confirmation on just who was helping Gordon punish Hoffman.

Creative partners Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton -- who co-wrote a total of four Saw sequels -- are back once again with The Neighbor, a new thriller that marks Dunstan's third directorial effort after 2009's The Collector and its 2012 sequel The Collection. Set in Mississippi, the film stars Josh Stewart (Criminal Minds) and Alex Essoe (so memorable as the fame-hungry actress in Starry Eyes) as a couple who uncover the horrifying truth about their next door neighbor (stand-up comedian-turned-actor Bill Engvall of Blue Collar Comedy fame). You can watch an ultra-tense scene from the film in the HitFix-exclusive clip above. The Neighbor is out this week on DVD, Digital HD and VOD. »

The house has already been taken over by ‘the collector’, a devious serial killer who likes to collect his victims. The pairing of Stewart and Dunstan re-teamed for a follow-up The Collection, a film that failed to reach the same excitement level as the first. Seeking to reignite the spark, the duo have joined forces for a third, but completely different film, The Neighbour.
This time Stewart plays John, a down-trodden young man who makes his living helping his uncle run his local crime ring. Whilst John is helping his uncle, his wife Rosie (Alex Essoe) is left at »
