Jigsaw features plenty of the deadly traps for which the franchise is famous. “We’ve got some pretty wild traps in the film — we don’t shy away from the gore,” says [co-director] Michael Spierig. “It’s such a perfect Halloween scarefest. It’s perhaps not quite as vicious and more fun, which is something we tried to inject into it. But it’s still full of good fun gore, that’s for sure. And, on top of that, it’s got a really great mystery, and there’s very interesting twists. It’s Saw for 2017.”
