Trailer Talk: Spiral (From the Book of Saw)
‘Spiral: From the Book of Saw’ follows Detective Zeke Banks as he uncovers a new string of murders that are reminiscent of the city’s horrific past.
I’m interested in this entry, not only because it’s another ‘Saw’ film, but it’s also written by and starring Chris Rock, as well as Samuel L Jackson. I find it fascinating that we live in a world where a disturbing ‘Joker’ adaptation was directed and written by the writer/director of ‘The Hangover’, the last ‘Halloween’ entry was co-written by Danny McBride and now this.
It’s a fascinating direction that the film industry is going in and, because of the writers’ background, they can bring something new to the franchises.
The film’s also going back to its roots of a mystery/crime film which I appreciate; the franchise needs to be shaken up a bit. While I am intrigued by the subtitle, they shouldn’t have included what is probably a vital scene in the film: Chris Rock tied to a pipe by his ankle, and him holding up a hacksaw. My guess is that this is a flashback or dream sequence.
Overall, I’m excited for this entry and I’m ready for a new game to begin!
‘Spiral (From the Book of Saw)’ will be in cinemas 15th May 2020
In 2003, Wan and Whannell made a short film to help pitch a potential feature film concept. Their pitch was ultimately successful, and in 2004, the first installment of what would become the feature film franchise debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. The film was released theatrically that October, by Lionsgate. The sequels were directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, David Hackl, and Kevin Greutert, and were written by Wan, Whannell, Bousman, Patrick Melton, and Marcus Dunstan, and were released subsequently every October, on the Friday before Halloween, between 2004 and 2010. Both of the creators remained with the franchise as executive producers.
