Lionsgate's Jigsaw is bringing back a Saw franchise tradition next month with the annual blood drive. Throughout October, mobile blood drive stations will be popping up all over the country, and fans who donate will receive a free ticket to see Jigsaw in theaters starting October 27, through a partnership with Atom Tickets. To promote this blood drive, Lionsgate has released new posters featuring eight of the "nurses" who will be out helping to collect blood.
The posters surfaced on the blood drive's official site, JigsawBloodDrive.com, which feature movie critic/interviewer Grae Drake, fitness guru Dan Rockwell, iconic event producer Susanne Bartch, and models Nyakim Gatwech, Shaun Dross, Mosh, Mykie and Amanda LePore. Ever since launching in 2004, with the first Saw Movie, the blood drive has resulted in over 120,000 pints of blood being donated, that lead to over 360,000 lives being saved. The blood drive will kick off in New York City on October 5, 7 and 8, between 10AM - 4PM at 11th Ave and West 36th Street, before heading across the country all month long.

Thirteen years ago on Halloween weekend, Saw and the character of Jigsaw introduced the world to a new face of horror. For seven straight years "If it's Halloween it must be SAW" was a holiday tradition. This October 27, Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures proudly present Jigsaw! After a series of murders bearing all the markings of the Jigsaw killer, law enforcement find themselves chasing the ghost of a man dead for over a decade and embroiled in a new game that's only just begun. Is John Kramer back from the dead to remind the world to be grateful for the gift of life? Or is this a trap set by a killer with designs of their own? Take a look at all of the new posters below for Jigsaw
