I remember ten years ago. I was huddled next to my best friend at the time, starring at the horrors that unfolded on screen. I remember cringing at every bit of blood, bone and body parts that splattered on the walls of the bathroom set. Sheltering in the shoulder of my mate, I cowered as the grim tale unfolded bit by bit, inch by inch, and flesh by flesh (hey, maybe I always was a wuss). And then, out of nowhere, I was flummoxed by an unnerving and unpredictable plot twist which filled me with glee and we danced around the room like cinematic loving goons. What movie? Ladies and gentlemen, that was Saw.
Now, living in a world where there are several sequels to the franchise and even several movie rides, Saw has become epitomes for delivering torture porn at its goriest and each gruesome number becomes more twisted, sparking off outrage in some and delight in others. As it is ten years in the making of a horror feast unlike any other, Lionsgate have announced that Saw and its subsequent deformed children will be returning back to cinemas.
Why Halloween of course?
Enjoy all guts spilt and play little games with Saw this October 31st as the franchise heads back to cinemas.
