John Kramer (played by Tobin Bell) may be dead, but the Jigsaw Killer is coming back to reclaim Halloween on October 27th! Last week, we brought you the official poster and first pictures from Jigsaw, the 8th chapter in Lionsgate’s wildly successful Saw franchise, and today, we’re stoked to bring you the first trailer! The folks at San Diego Comic-Con saw it last night and, this morning, it hit the net; have a look-see:
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.”
We’ll keep our ears to the ground in order to bring you additional Jigsaw updates as details emerge. Stay tuned!
