John Kramer (Tobin Bell), alias the "Jigsaw" serial killer, is dead. We saw him die in "Saw III" and we watched his autopsy in "Saw IV," but his crimes live on with a new apprentice.Leave a comment
It was announced that "Saw VI" would end the series, but each October this franchise kept opening with 30 million dollar weekends. As "Saw VI" approached it's opening weekend, it was revealed that producers were planning a 3rd trilogy. Feeling betrayed and distracted by a new film titled "Paranormal Activity," "Saw VI" opened with it's smallest box office purse. "Saw VI" concludes on an open ended note with a "Saw VII" being produced as this is being written. Produced in 3D, the "Saw" franchise may be taking a break for a new generation. Oh yea, Tobin Bell will be back.
What it lacks in story, the second sadistic "Saw" trilogy provides improved production values. By "Saw VI," Jigsaw's warehouse of doom looks pristine and clean. Unlike the attention deficit disorder of the first "Saw" trilogy, "Saw VI" allows one to see every painful bloodletting bear trap.
Unlike the torture porn of Eli Roth's "Hostel" flicks, John "Jigsaw" Kramer does have a code of conduct. In "Saw VI," Jigsaw's victims of people who profit on health care.
