I almost feel bad for Saw VI. The flick delivered on all counts; yet, it performed really badly at the box office. We can only hazard a guess that the damage done by the abysmal Part V left audiences so cold that the new film was something they weren't going to bank on this year. David Hackl, director of Part V, now has a date for redemption with his new flick Saw VII 3D.
Yep. Even though Saw VI is just days away, we're already talking about Saw VII. Hard to believe but true nonetheless. At the Saw VI press conference today (look for a full report soon), producer Mark Berg spoke a bit about how they're handling the 3D process for the next entry in Jigsaw's long list of games.
Even though Saw VI hasn't even graced a single screen yet, Lionsgate is pushing forward with the seventh entry into its long-running franchise entitled Saw VII 3D.
We’re still nearly three months away from Saw VI’s theatrical release, but Lionsgate seems pretty confident that they’ve already got your hard-earned bucks in their pocket. So much so that they’re pulling out all the gimmicky stops for 2010’s Saw VII.

No "Scream Queens" this time. Instead, how about some real Saw fun?
Is David Hackl's Saw V entering the political arena? Doubtful, but this bit of artwork by Michael Troy featuring Vice Presidential running mate Sarah Palin does put a new spin on the typical lifeless advertising campaigns.
LionsgateLIVE, the studio's YouTube page, is offering visitors a chance create a trailer that will also enter them into a contest consisting of two tickets to the opening of the fifth installment of the franchise and a trip to LA!
Remember the Saw V clip we described during this year's Comic-Con? It is now available for all to see, if you're old enough.
So we’re in that annual time when anything and everything relating to the next Saw film, in this case Saw V, we have to do a news story on because you guys just can’t get enough of it. I guess I don’t blame you; the last movie was pretty damn good so there’s a chance this one will be as well!
We’d be remiss to forget our horror-loving brothers across the pond, who I’m sure are just as eagerly looking forward to seeing more of Jigsaw’s antics in Saw V as we are. The sequel opens on October 24th in UK cinemas, and to give Dread some international flavor, I thought we’d share the UK quad poster with you guys today.
We received the final poster art for David Hackl's Saw V, and it boasts that we'll "never believe how it ends." But ... isn't there already a sixth Saw film in the works? Do they mean how this trap ends or how this chapter ends? The fourth sequel in the Saw franchise follows the path of destruction the new Jigsaw creates as he attempts to keep his identity a secret. Torture, flashbacks, and hopefully more pig masks await us in theatres on October 24th.
Unlike previous Saw films, the fifth entry in the franchise has some of us genre fans genuinely interested. Why? Well, we have someone else in Jigsaw's shoes, with an entirely new motive, and a new director has our hopes set higher than the previous flicks.
At some point over the last couple of days, the first teaser for Saw V finally showed up online, not in some crappy taped-at-Comic-Con YouTube format, but rather right here on Dread Central!
