For anyone that isn’t sure about the connection between music and horror films — and I know there still may be a few of you out there — the music marketing company that’s behind the Saw III soundtrack would suggest that the link is undeniable.
In anticipation of the opening of Saw III, which hits theaters October 27, the Saw franchise will team up with Warcon Records to begin “pulling out all the stops” with a show on October 19 at Webster Hall in New York City. The show focuses on the musical side of Saw.
The evening combines appearances by bands featured on the Saw III soundtrack, to be released October 24 via Artist Addiction, Warcon Enterprises and Fontana Distribution. The night will be headlined by the ultra-heavy Helmet, The Smashup and Hydrovibe. The show will be hosted by Shawnee Smith (who stars as Amanda in the Saw films). Other special guests from the Saw franchise will also make appearances.
The show will feature — get this — a Saw museum that includes: torture devices, headgear, set pieces and even Jigsaw’s infamous puppet “Billie,” as well as other authentic props. This reportedly is the first time — and the only time — these particular items will be on exhibition.
As an added bonus true Saw devotees will be able to join the “Circle of Blood.” Circle of Blood participants will gain early access to the venue for a private meet-and-greet autograph session with Shawnee, the bands, and members of the cast and will take home a commemorative bag of Saw merchandise.
