It almost feels weird not already talking about the next Saw. We miss Jigsaw. For better or worse (Saw V) the crazed thinking man's killer has become like an old friend. A comfy sweater. You get where we're going.
It’s hard to believe it’s been almost seven years since the horror genre was turned on its head by the juggernaut that is the Saw franchise, and it was in that first installment where we met one of the first Jigsaw victims: Dr. Lawrence Gordon, played by Cary Elwes.
So the day has come for you folks to take home Costas Mandylor in the final chapter of the phenomenon that is Saw! Well, at least until the inevitable reboot.
The voting members of The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation have sifted through the cinematic rubble of 2010 and selected nominees for the 31st annual RAZZIE Awards. Leading the horror pack are The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Vampires Suck, and Clash of the Titans with Jonah Hex also garnering a few nods.
What is this world coming to? So get this ... a TV spot for Saw 3D has been banned in the UK because a ten-year-old kid complained to his parents that it was "distressing". That's right, distressing! The news comes straight from the BBC:
Though it's due out here in the States on Blu-ray and DVD in just a couple of weeks, Lionsgate's final chapter in their monster-sized Saw franchise is still making the rounds internationally, and the cool one-sheets have kept on coming!
Say what you want about Lionsgate's Saw franchise; there's just no denying its popularity and influence on the horror genre today, and its big curtain call is getting ready to hit home video really soon! From the Press Release

In what has become a Halloween tradition, the Saw movies have offered a funhouse ride filled with puzzles, contraptions and harsh Old Testament judgment. Made the wrong choices in life? Take something for granted? Bang! Find yourself locked in a steel death trap.
No, no one has recorded the great "Mandylor" song; however, over on the official YouTube page of a movie musical genius named Goldentusk, he has added his own lyrics to the very popular Saw theme song.
After a long day capped off with late three-dimensional torture porn absurdity, and with no Uncle Creepy around to record an immediate Saw-centric Foycast, I jotted down a few talking points to guide me as I sat down to record what I intended to be a brief solo audio review of Saw 3D that ended up a 17-minute rant of me rambling (at times only semi-coherently) about how mentally chal
