Final Jigsaw Poster Will Give You The Chills


Are you ready for Jigsaw?

It is, in essence, the eighth entry into Lionsgate’s time-honored Saw franchise, one that’s coming by way of directing duo Michael and Peter Spierig. Best known for their work on Daybreakers, the Spierig siblings are still relatively new when it comes to Hollywood’s horror scene, but when asked to describe how they approached the cult series, Michael Spierig hinted that Jigsaw is “Saw for 2017.” That means it’s safe to expect more nightmare fuel and wildly inventive demented traps than you can shake a pig’s mask at, and though Lionsgate’s franchise has fallen by the wayside in recent years, in 2017, Halloween belongs to Jigsaw. And long may he reign.

Mind you, given that Tobin Bell’s sick, twisted psychopath bit the bullet in Saw III, it looks certain that John Kramer has gathered together a band of disciples to continue that horrifying game from beyond the grave. Eek!

With only about a month to go now before the studio unleashes the latest chapter in the beloved horror series, a new and presumably final poster has debuted. Seen in the gallery below, along with a few others that were recently released, it spotlights one of the titular character’s disciples, who’s had his face painted to resemble the iconic Billy puppet.

Working from a script put together by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D), the sequel formerly known as Saw: Legacy will feature a cast comprised of Mandela Van Peebles, Laura Vandervoort, Brittany Allen, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Josiah Black, Shaquan Lewis, Michael Bolsvert and James Gomez.

Between Leatherface and Jigsaw – one prequel; one sequel – Lionsgate is plotting double trouble this Halloween, and Michael and Peter Spierig’s nightmarish scare-fest will actually complete the one-two punch when it lights up theaters on October 27th. Leatherface, meanwhile, is set to chronicle the origins of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre on October 20th.
