My usual hesitation in contemporary horror franchises still holds true, however I am willing to give JIGSAW a shot. Why? Because this edition of the series is directed by The Spierig Brothers, and those two have yet to let me down.
If you are in either Hartford or Boston you can grab passes to see JIGSAW at an area theater. These passes will be valid Monday through Thursday after the film opens at area-specific theaters, and they will work starting Monday, October 30th.
Want to grab a pass? Just comment below with your email address and which location works for you.
Some info on JIGSAW:
“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?”
