The Saw franchise helped kick off the so-called “torture porn” sub-genre of horror films, And whether or not you choose to accept its existence doesn’t deny that it has spawned a resurgence in the Grand Guignol.
For his film Vitals, it’s clear writer/director Marc Morgenstern wants to keep the legacy of James Wan’s franchise alive.
Morgenstern has just announced that “How I Met Your Mother” star Charlene Amoia (pictured) and Christopher Showerman (The Land That Time Forgot, Complacent) have been cast in his Saw-esque thriller that begins shooting in Los Angeles next month.
Vitals features Showerman as an unassuming electrician who wakes up in an abandoned motel room in a tub of ice with his kidney missing. It’s only a matter of time before he finds his wife in the adjacent room waiting to be the next victim to a horrible organ harvesting organization. Now they must use each other’s wits and skills to escape before their captors return and their dark secrets are revealed.
Check out the teaser trailer for Vitals, which also stars Sachin Metha, Tim Russ, and Claudia Wells, below.
