saw escape room

“Do you want to play a game?” That’s the signature question from the Saw film franchise, concocted by the twisted John Kramer (Tobin Bell) in order to teach terrible people lessons about their own limits. And though the horror franchise is currently finished (or is it?), fans can play a game of their own at The Official Saw Escape Experience in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This is more than just one Saw escape room, it’s an entire multi-roomed factory dedicated to recreating aspects of the movies. Check out a trailer below.

new saw sequel

Do you want to play a game…again? Much like Jigsaw himself, the Saw franchise will apparently never really die. Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, who wrote the most recent sequel Jigsaw, are apparently hard at work on yet another new Saw sequel. What elaborate, implausible traps await us this time?

I Want to Play a Game: All 81 ‘Saw’ Kills Ranked

all saw kills ranked

Saw and Halloween – name a more iconic October duo from the last decade (seriously, not just memeing here). Every Fall, for a span of seven films in as many years, John Kramer/Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) – or one of his minions/impersonators – erected a maze of “torture porn” death traps for “chosen” characters to navigate. Carcasses were scorched, heads were pulverized like rotten fruit, and insides were spilled at a frightening turnover rate. Saw 3D was intended to end the franchise, but studio execs eventually realized how much money was left up for grabs.

Zip ahead to 2017 and we have the appropriately titled Jigsaw, Lionsgate’s reboot of James Wan’s infamous slaughterhouse-games franchise. Once again, audiences could rely on Halloween’s October release window for one screamingly macabre “test” designed to maim, massacre and murder with redemptive intent. When I heard the news myself, a flash of Jigsaw’s bodycount projected before my eyes and I knew – as an online film journalist with absolutely zero dignity left – what had to be done. SOMEONE MUST RANK ALL THE SAW DEATH SEQUENCES.

Unfortunately, Jigsaw is not screening for press so this article just focuses on Saw through Saw 3D. In any case, let’s get to the gory details. How does your favorite “trap” or death rank on this punishing playlist of the damned?

slasher things

The Demogorgon is a truly terrifying monster that the kids from Stranger Things had to defeat, but what if they faced off against your run-of-the-mill slasher villain? It wouldn’t be pretty — we’re talking violence, strong language, adult content— all things that may be a bit too mature for the 11-something kids who saved the day and Will Byers.

While we may not get a guy with a chainsaw chasing the kids around Hawkins, this spoof of the Stranger Things trailer imagines what it would be like if the small Indiana town was terrorized by Jason from Friday the 13th or Pennywise the Clown from It. Unsurprisingly, it matches up perfectly.

Jigsaw trailer

Tobin Bell‘s twisted character Jigsaw, aka John Kramer, died in 2006’s Saw III, but his impact is still being felt ten years after the events of 2010’s now-incorrectly-named Saw: The Final Chapter. Kramer is somehow back to his old ways in Jigsaw, Lionsgate’s first sequel to the franchise in seven years, and that means more gruesome traps, more elaborate games, and the return of that sinister little tricycle-riding doll.

Check out the first Jigsaw trailer below.

jigsaw first look

Every horror series that runs for a long time becomes fascinating by default, but the Saw series was fascinating long before it limped to a supposed finish line with 2010’s Saw: The Final Chapter. But nothing can keep a popular horror franchise dead for long and the series returns (reboots?) this year with Jigsaw, the eighth film in the long-running, critically despised, and surprisingly worthy-of-additional-study series.

A Jigsaw first look, along with plot details and comments from the film’s directors, has arrived online, so let’s take a look.

Spierig

The previous installment in the Saw franchise was titled “The Final Chapter.” Even at the time, it was hard to believe the violent moneymaking series was completely over with, and time has proven that belief correct. Earlier this year, it was reported Lionsgate was developing Saw: Legacy. The studio hired Piranha 3D and Piranha 3DD screenwriters Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger to reignite the franchise, which James Wan kicked off in 2004 with his thriller. Now, the sequel has attracted two very promising filmmakers: Michael and Peter Spierig (Predestination).

Below, learn more about the Saw sequel.

saw 8

In 2004, a tiny horror movie called Saw, from an unknown director named James Wan, played at the Sundance Film Festival to good reviews, was picked up by a relatively minor distributor called Lionsgate, and the rest is history. Lionsgate is now a major player. James Wan is directing gigantic blockbusters. And the Saw series went the path of so many other horror franchises: it was driven into the ground until it died a violent and seemingly final death.

It’s been six years since Saw 3D: The Final Chapter seeming closed the book on the saga of Jigsaw and his merry band of serial killers, but like Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare, and The Final Destination before it, that title turned out to be a lie. A new report indicates that Lionsgate is currently working to bring Saw out of hibernation for an eighth film, to be titled Saw: Legacy.
