The disturbing new trailer for Jigsaw has dropped on the Internet. The new footage promises all the thrills, shocks, and gore that fans of the Saw franchise have come to expect, but this time around, there appear to be more sadistic traps and gruesome situations than ever before.
Earlier this week, the directors of the film, the Spierig Brothers, spoke out about the movie. The duo revealed that the fans are in for more creative yet torturous traps, which is a signature characteristic of the franchise.
"We've got some pretty wild traps in the film — we don't shy away from the gore," Michael Spierig said during an interview with EW.
"It's such a perfect Halloween scare-fest. It's perhaps not quite as vicious and more fun, which is something we tried to inject into it. But it's still full of good fun gore, that's for sure. And, on top of that, it's got a really great mystery, and there are very interesting twists. It's Saw for 2017."
What many fans have been wondering is if the original film's killer, played by Tobin Bell, is returning to the movie. The Spierig brothers dodged the question by saying, "The DNA of Tobin Bell is all over this film."
The upcoming sequel's synopsis is as follows:
"Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one man: John Kramer. But how can this be? The man known as Jigsaw has been dead for over a decade. Or has an apprentice picked up the mantle of Jigsaw, perhaps even someone inside the investigation?"
The film stars Mandela Van Peebles, Laura Vandervoort, Brittany Allen, and Callum Keith Rennie. Although the original film's star, Cary Elwes, returned to the series in later sequels, he is not slated to return in this newest sequel.
Jigsaw was directed by the Spierig Brothers, who have previously given audiences Undead, Daybreakers, and Predestination. The script was penned by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, the duo responsible for both Piranha 3D and its sequel, Piranha 3DD.
Jigsaw will be hitting theaters on October 27.
