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.
Can he pull it off, or should Kevin Gruetert (director of VI) been given another shot? Nothing against Hackl, but we’re inclined to believe the latter. Gruetert proved he had the chops to get things back on track. At least writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton are back. Guess we’ll find out what happens on October 22, 2010, as that’s the date Lionsgate is circling for Saw VII 3D to invade theatres.
