Just when you started to forget about the Saw franchise after many, many sequels, Lionsgate has released a trailer for their upcoming sequel/reboot Jigsaw. The trailer makes the movie seem like more than just a straight up horror film, with a sense of mystery and action throughout the two and a half minutes. It will be interesting to see how things play out and if the film sticks to the series’ more usual horror genre tendencies or if it expands and become something more like The Purge, which has a bit more action and thriller aspect to it than just the classic slasher fare.
In my personal opinion if the saw franchise is going to continue on successfully, I think it might be a brilliant idea for it to expand a little bit with a little bit more action and mystery and suspense to it than your average horror film. Will that actually happen? Time will tell, but for now check out the rather intriguing trailer for Jigsaw and be sure to catch the movie when it hits theaters October 27. As always, stay tuned to Poor Man’s Spoiler for more updates on Jigsaw.
