He may have died at the end of Part III, but the latest poster for Jigsaw, the 8th installment in Lionsgate’s hugely successful Saw franchise, is all about the man himself: John Kramer, played to chilling perfection by Tobin Bell. Jigsaw will delve deeper into the sadistic moralist’s legacy; a recent trailer centers around a group of new initiates. Have a look at the poster and the trailer below.
Official Synopsis: 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.
Directed by Michael and Peter Spierig, Jigsaw stars Laura Vandervoort, Tobin Bell, and Matt Passmore.
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.”
