A Halloween tradition returns next month as the original Saw heads back to theaters for a one-week engagement in celebration of its 10th anniversary starting October 31st.
Relive the horror of what the Guinness Book of World Records hails as the "Most Successful Horror Franchise" of all time with a brand new trailer and poster in celebration of Jigaw's triumphant return. After securing $874 million at the box office worldwide over the past decade, the one that started it all is ready to scare a whole new generation of fans.
Saw was the first collaboration for co-creators James Wan, who directed the film, and Leigh Whannell, who wrote the screenplay. Together, they also created the successful Insidious franchise, and Wan has gone on to direct such high-profile films as The Conjuring and the upcoming Fast & Furious 7. But nothing comes close to the terror held within the framework of the very first Saw!
Directed by James Wan from a script penned by Leigh Whannell, Saw is a psychological thriller focusing on two men who wake up in a secure lair of a serial killer, with a dead body lying between them. The killer, nicknamed "Jigsaw," leaves them tape recorded messages with details of how to make it out alive. The only way for one man to make it out alive is to do the unthinkable. The two men desperately try to find a way out, while also trying to figure out who's behind their kidnapping. The film, which was released over Halloween weekend on October 29, 2004, was produced by Gregg Hoffman, Oren Koules, and Mark Burg.
Check out the new trailer, which is sure to have you howling in terror all over again:
