Horror franchises are rarities, but when they are created, more often than not they are both outstanding in their field, and within the whole film industry. They usually contain a character who has become some sort of pop culture figure and or have a cult following in the masses. They aren’t always the big budget films, no, some horror franchises are derived on their extremism and individuality, which encompasses a unique following that helps fuel more creations. Below is a list of the greatest horror movies franchises to date based on, number of installations, influence and grossing.
Jigsaw is back, and so is Tobin Bell too some degree. The eighth film in the gruesome Saw franchise has got a release date and now, a trailer thanks to San Diego’s Comic-Con. The 8th film, set a decade after the 7th film reveals that the genius killer Jigsaw, is back.
During the trailer it is stated that Jigsaw’s DNA is found under a fingernail, although we last saw Tobin Bell’s percipient character during his autopsy in Saw IV. The speculation around who Jigsaw is for the newest addition has left us begging for more, building up the anticipation for this new Saw film. The trailer itself does just the same, showcasing a barrage of new traps.
Jigsaw has been written by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Sorrority Row). Whilst directing this Halloween special are the Spierig brothers (Daybreakers).
