The Jigsaw killer is back in this 8th instalment of the long-running Saw horror-film franchise, and it should have you squirming through this trailer.
This first official trailer doesn’t give much away in terms of plot, except we can see that the Jigsaw killer has returned, and is back up to his old killing tricks – forcing people into elaborate murder-puzzles, having them make difficult life or death decisions in order to survive.
While there’s not much violence or gore (unlike the recently released trailer for Leatherface) in this trailer, the positions some of his victims are put in may have you feeling slightly uncomfortable – it’s great!
Even though the Saw films have been done to death already, it feels like there hasn’t been one in a while, and my interest has been piqued with this new one.
The film is directed by the Spierig brothers, whom most recently directed the disturbing sci-fi film Predestination (2014), which was fantastic, so I’m keen to see how they go with this one.
Jigsaw stars Tobin Bell, Laura Vandervoort, Mandela Van Peebles and Callum Keith Rennie.
It’s due out on 2 November 2017.
Check out the first official trailer below and let us know if you’re looking forward to this in the comments, or if you’re completely over the Saw franchise.
