Official Synopsis: Thirteen years ago, on Halloween weekend – SAW and the character of JIGSAW introduced the world to a new face of horror. For seven straight years “If it’s Halloween it must be SAW” was a holiday tradition. This October 27… Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures proudly present JIGSAW! After a series of murders bearing all the markings of the Jigsaw killer, law enforcement find themselves chasing the ghost of a man dead for over a decade and embroiled in a new game that’s only just begun.

Jigsaw is directed by Michael and Peter Spierig from a script penned by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (shame on you all!); the film stars Matt Passmore, Tobin Bell, and Callum Keith Rennie.
