Lionsgate moving forward with “Saw 8″… will Tobin Bell return as Jigsaw???

Man, I’m so glad this is happening ’cause I fucking LOVE the “SAW” movies. I love ’em all. All 7 films. It’s a pretty long series but each film is pretty smart storytelling. They all tell an actual story which is what I love about ’em. I also love the story of John Kramer. Pretty insightful stuff.

Lionsgate is moving forward with “SAW 8” which is currently titled, “SAW: Legacy”. Ever since the first SAW film came out in 2004 directed by James Wan, the series became such a smash hit. Each time a sequel came out every Oct., the film is a smash hit. Each film did very well in the box office so I’m not surprised they’re planning another one.

The 7th film kind of did leave open for another movie so it’s obviously not over yet. The Game isn’t over. Hear Jigsaw’s voice, “I want to play a game”.

‘Saw’: Lionsgate Begins Developing Next Sequel, ‘Legacy’

Will Tobin Bell return as John Kramer/Jigsaw? Given the title that it is “Saw: Legacy”… hint the title, “Legacy”… it’s hinting you that the next film will be about chronicling the earlier films so there’s probably gonna be a lot of flashbacks. So yeah, I think there’s a very BIG change Tobin Bell will return.

Only thing is, though that John Kramer died of cancer in one of the earlier films so how would they bring him back? Would they do more flashbacks? Um no… I think that’s a lame idea. I think it would be more interesting if they can find a way to bring Kramer back from the dead. Keep in mind this is “horror” so anything is possible.

I love the SAW movies and I’m absolutely down with the new one. It’s good timing to do another one ’cause Tobin Bell is getting old… he’s in his 70’s now but I’m sure he’s still in good health to do one more movie.

The “Saw” series is the best horror franchise out there, I hope there will be a part 8…

I just watched all 7 “Saw” films just recently on BluRay and WOW!!!!!!!!!! I’m fuckin’ blown away with all of them! Loved every film! I think “Saw” is easily the best horror franchise around but is “Saw 7” seriously the last one? I sure hope not! I think I’ve read somewhere that Lionsgate studios is planning a Saw 8 so I hope it’s true. They should keep these series going.

The reason I was impressed with these series ’cause they are so different than any other horror franchise out there. We have “Friday the 13th”, “Halloween”, the Chucky Movies, the Freddy movies, etc. but they all have the same boring plot and same boring story. Not with the “Saw” movies, though. Each film has a plot and story. I thought the storytelling in the “Saw” movies was pretty intelligent and thought provoking. These movies can get you thinking for sure.

As I was watching these movies, I’ve come to a realization that Jigsaw (or John Kramer played by the great Tobin Bell) is more of a hero than a villain, in my opinion. How? Well, Jigsaw only took down those who were bad people. He took down criminals, drug dealers, rapists and all that stuff. He also took down those who doesn’t appreciate life, doesn’t deserve a life. As the films get going, you would learn more about John Kramer in the sequels. You would learn why he started the Jigsaw games. I don’t wanna spoil things to you but lets just say that John Kramer was a broken down guy who was upset about something. It had something to do with his wife. The stories had all kinds of twists and turns and shockers.

Jigsaw is also the king of movie quotes. He said some pretty epic quotes such as “Live or die, make your choice”, “Let the game begin”, “Hello (name here), I want to play a game”, etc.

I hope they keep these movies going. I don’t want remakes or reboots ’cause that would destroy this franchise. Could they bring John Kramer back somehow? Keep in mind, this is horror so I’m sure there’s always a way to figure out a way to bring Kramer back for one more movie.

Tobin Bell is a phenomenal actor though. Now I understand why these movies are so popular and most of them did well in the box office too. I’ve always been a big fan of Cary Elwes, he’s been a favorite actor of mine for a pretty long time. While all 7 movies are great, the first one with Cary and Danny Glover will always be a classic! I’m glad I finally got around to seeing the rest of them.

I think “Saw” is the greatest horror movie franchise, love this series so much!! WOW!!!

In the past, I’ve only seen the first “Saw” film which is an amazing film and a masterpiece for sure. I haven’t seen all the other “Saw” flicks until now. I’ve watched the first three on Netflix streaming and so far, I’m very impressed with these films. I never watched the other “Saw” films ’cause I thought they would be the same to me, just a bunch of people playing a game just to survive. Turns out the series is more than just that.

The storytelling in this franchise is actually very intelligent and thought provoking!

We have horror film franchises such as “Friday the 13th”, “Halloween”, “Nightmare on Elm St.”, “Child’s Play”, etc. All of ’em are great, don’t get me wrong but I think “Saw” is the best of them all.

I think Tobin Bell is a badass. Tobin’s character John Kramer & Jigsaw maybe evil and totally psychotic and messed up but Kramer is actually a pretty likeable villain.

I’m trying to watch all 7 Saw films. Netflix only has the first four available through streaming but I’m gonna have to rent the other three on DVD. I might even forget about watching them through Netflix and just buy the complete Saw series on BluRay boxset, I probably will.

“SAW” is an excellent franchise though. Most slasher films don’t have a plot but all of the “SAW” movies do have a plot which helps make them watchable. I’m probably gonna watch “SAW IV” later tonight. Now I understand why the SAW franchise is so popular.

The Brock’s Horror Film Pick #15: Saw (first one, only)

I’m not really a big fan of SAW, but I think the first one was really good. I only saw like, the first three flicks, and haven’t been following the rest of ’em. Seen one, seen them all. Cary Elwes and Danny Glover together in this movie is gold. I think that’s what I loved the most about it. The sequels after this one kind of ruined it for me. I thought the first one had pretty masterful storytelling, though. A horror movie that actually had a plot, and not just about blood & guts!

Report: Cary Elwes to return to the “Saw” franchise….

Actor, Cary Elwes, will be reprising his role as Dr. Gordon in the upcoming “Saw VII”. Cary Elwes was only in the first Saw movie which also starred, Danny Glover. Cary will be returning to “Saw VII” to play one of the leading roles.

More on it here:

I’m not much of a Saw fan. I loved the first one a lot though, I just didn’t like any of the other ones. As long as Cary’s coming back, I’ll go see it. He’s a great actor and very underrated too. Don’t know who Cary Elwes is? You might remember him as Wesley, the man in black, from the “Princess Bride” movie, and he was also in “Shadow of the Vampire”.

Report: “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3-D” is coming, but will be made by the makers of “Saw” and not by Michael Bay’s Platinum Dune’s…

Twisted Pictures, the film company who owns the “Saw” series, is in final negotiations with Lionsgates studios to continue the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” series. Twisted and Lionsgate will take over “TCM”, which they will get the rights from New Line/Michael Bay’s Platinum Dune’s. New Line/Platinum Dune’s already made two “TCM movies which was the remake and a prequel. There will be a third movie which will be made in 3-D. Twisted Pictures plans to make more films with “TCM” which is what this deal is for.

They want to keep Leatherface and the “Saw” villain, Jigsaw under the same company.

Hope they make the next Texas Chainsaw gory and really gruesome, that’s the way these movies are supposed to be. With the makers of Saw now in charge, I’m sure they’ll make the TCM movies better.

Marcus Nispel’s version of “TCM” was really good, I liked it, but the gore should still make an improvement.

I like this move. Interesting.

Report: Saw 7 is greenlighted…

Although, “Saw VI” is being released this coming October, the latest Saw film of the franchise, Lionsgate has decided to greenlight “Saw VII” early. The same producers and the same writers are back with the next installment.

David Hackl, who directed “Saw V” is in talks to direct “Saw VII”.

While I’m a huge fan of most horror franchises, I love Friday the 13th, I love Nightmare on Elm St., I love Halloween, I love Hellraiser…but I can’t stand the Saw series. I don’t like ’em for some reason.

It’s not that I find the gross out scenes offensive, I’m never offended at gross out scenes in movies.

I guess I just don’t like this whole idea of Jigsaw John, this villain, forcing these kids to find their way out of the house alive by solving all these games and puzzles. It’s all pretty fucking stupid in my opinion. Saw, overrated, boring and ridiculous. I don’t see how people can get into it.

The “Saw” series….overrated and boring…

Why do people enjoy these “Saw” movies so much? To me, I find them to be overrated and boring. I only saw the first two, and I’m like, “Meh, that’s enough Saw movies for me”. I won’t even see III, IV or V. It’s not that I’m scared. It’s not that I get grossed out or start to puke over blood and guts scene ’cause I very much enjoy that stuff.

I enjoy horror films. It’s one of my favorite genres to pay attention to. I FUCKING LOVE THE HORROR GENRE. I’ve been into the horror genre for years, pretty much ever since I was a child believe it or not. I enjoy scary and dark things. It’s what pumps me up and gets my mind going.

Many would think the “Saw” series is getting just as popular as Friday the 13th, Halloween and the Nightmare on Elm St. series. Well to  tell you the truth, the “Saw” series is not even in Jason Voorhees, Michael Myers and Freddy’s league. The “Saw” series are all pretty much the same thing. Being trapped in some strange house with some guy trying to play this game with the group of kids trapped in. *yawn* You call that storytelling?

It’s understandable kids would enjoy the “Saw” films since they probably aren’t into the horror genre at all. There are way better horror films than “Saw”. If you look at my Top 20 horror films a few blogs back, I can name plenty of great horror films that I love.

I know a good horror movie when I see one and the “Saw” series aren’t good movies. I know a lot about the horror genre since I spent my life on it. When I was a kid, I’ve read all the Stephen King books, seen the Tales from the Crypt series on HBO back in the day, seen all kinds of R rated horror flicks when I was even underage as well.

There’s nothing special about the “Saw” series. It’s just bad storytelling, and bad acting as well. It ain’t even scary at all either. It is not an original story because these kids trapped in a house and trying to get out alive has been done over and over and over and over again so many times. The “Saw” movies were clearly made for the younger generation around the 20’s – 30’s age range. I just don’t get it. I don’t like the movies at all and there are better horror films out there.

The movie “Dead Silence” which is a horror film made by James Wan who is also the creator of the “Saw” series, “Dead Silence” is a much better film than “Saw”. “Dead Silence” I would say is a creepy film and the story was very well written. I would reccomend “Dead Silence” if you haven’t seen it  yet.

Those that support the “Saw” series, just don’t understand what true horror is all about and they just go see the movies for popcorn “entertainment”. That’s what “Saw” is to me, a popcorn entertainment movie, not a horror film. I know what makes a good horror film and a good horror story. Those who actually do get scared by watching the “Saw” series are probably new to the horror genre.
