Back in the 2000s, I was a big fan of the Saw movies. After watching the first one once it was out on DVD, I saw all the original sequels in theatres (despite their diminishing quality). I even followed along the news for Jigsaw, though the less I think of that one, the better.
When news came that Chris Rock was working on a reboot, I was curious, but also wasn’t sure if I necessarily wanted it. I was worried Lionsgate would just tack on a half-baked storyline to shoehorn it into the original movies (again, Jigsaw), so when the teaser trailer came out earlier today, I was pleasantly surprised with what I saw.
I’ve already watched it a few times, and after reading more information about it… I’m really excited for it! A return to the series’ gritty, psychological roots? Finally moving on from John Kramer and his endless supplies of apprentices? Count me in!
Have you checked out the teaser? What did you think of it? Let’s talk about it below!
