Spiral Continues Saw Legacy with an R-Rating for Bloody Violence and Torture
Saw 9, officially titled Spiral: From the Book of Saw, is set to arrive in theaters just in time for the summer movie season, and fans need not worry about things being toned down this time around. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has officially handed down an R-rating to the upcoming installment of the long-running horror franchise. That means Chris Rock should be in for a bloody, brutal ride.

The ninth entry in the Saw franchise will not be breaking tradition, as every previous movie was R-rated. It's tough to come up with violent deathtraps cooked up by a sadistic killer and have things air on the PG-13 side of the line. Luckily, Lionsgate didn't feel the need to tone things down. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. With 2017's Jigsaw grossing more than $100 million at the box office, it's certainly not broken yet. Per the MPAA, here

Shudder’s ‘Creepshow’ To Air On AMC Ahead Of Season 2 Launch

Shudder’s ‘Creepshow’ To Air On AMC Ahead Of Season 2 Launch
Shudder original Creepshow is set to get a linear debut on AMC ahead of the digital launch of its second season.

The move is the latest example of AMC Networks moving its content “fluidly” between its portfolio of linear channels and digital services. Last year, it aired supernatural horror drama NOS4A2 on AMC before putting it on Shudder for a second run. Creepshow will air on AMC later this year.

“There’s absolute crossover between the brand and the content on some of our linear channels and Ott services,” COO Ed Carroll, speaking on its investor call following its financials, said. “We think that [Creepshow] will be successful on AMC but will also then build audiences for the season two launch back on Shudder.”

The horror anthology series, which is executive produced by The Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero, is based on the 1982 movie written by horror icon Stephen King

Saw: 5 Jigsaw Victims Who Should've Lived (& 5 Who Deserved Their Fate)

Under the belief that some people don’t appreciate their lives until they’re put into life-or-death situations, John Kramer aka the Jigsaw Killer (Tobin Bell) sticks them in deadly traps where they have to fight to stay alive. This is the basic premise of the Saw movies, which will continue after a long hiatus in Spiral: From the Book of Saw.

Over the course of eight horror movies, Jigsaw put countless people to his brutal tests, but not all of them should’ve been there. Sure, some were horribly irredeemable monsters from the get go, but others just did something questionable at the wrong place and time. With that being said, here are five Jigsaw victims who didn’t deserve their fate and five more who did.

Jigsaw Will Reportedly Return In Spiral: From The Book Of Saw

Yesterday we got our first full look at Spiral: From the Book of Saw. The movie seems to be an interesting take on the Saw franchise, combining the grisly and sadistic mutilation games that the series is known for with a Se7en inspired detective story. This twist comes courtesy of actor and comedian Chris Rock, who reportedly came up with the concept and got this new production moving.

As we saw in the trailer, Rock will play a detective investigating a grisly series of murders targeting police officers. Common to all the crime scenes is an ominous red spiral, immediately familiar to horror fans as being from the cheeks of Jigsaw’s puppet Billy. Your first reaction is to naturally suspect that Jigsaw is back and taking out his murderous desires on the police. The thing is, though, Jigsaw – at least the original one, played by Tobin Bell – is definitely dead.

Samuel L. Jackson and Chris Rock are in for a world of hurt in Spiral: From the Book of Saw, the ninth chapter in the Jigsaw saga.

‘Spiral’ First Trailer: Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson Reboot the ‘Saw’ Franchise
In the famous words of Jigsaw: “Want to play a game?” Lionsgate is bringing the “Saw” horror movie franchise back to the big screen this year in a surprising new way thanks to “Spiral,” which the studio is billing as coming from “the book of ‘Saw.'” The new film is from executive producer Chris Rock, who also came up with the story for the project.

First Trailer For Chris Rock’s Saw Reboot Leaks Online

Update: For obvious reasons, we won’t embed the leaked trailer here, but it’s currently available to watch over on Reddit.

The Saw franchise has been around for more than a decade and a half now, and like most other long-running horror brands, the law of diminishing returns came into play a long, long time ago. The original is still by far the best and brought something different to the table when ‘torture porn’ was still all the rage, before the focus of the franchise shifted more to all the elaborate and gruesome traps cooked up by Tobin Bell’s Jigsaw, with each successive film trying to go even further than its predecessor.

And now, after eight movies, audiences have felt like they’ve seen it all when it comes to Saw. Or at least, they did, until Chris Rock entered the picture and brought a new Saw movie with him.

Bewildering Saw 9 Title Allegedly Leaks, But Is It for Real?
Spiral: From the Book of Saw is reportedly the official title of Saw Reboot. But this may be fake, as it hasn't been confirmed by Lionsgate and some initial reports have since been removed from the Internet. The reboot hits theaters later this year and there has been a ton of speculation as to what the official title was going to be. The working title for the horror movie was Organ Donor and is still what is listed on the Wikipedia page for the reboot. However, the Canadian distributor for the project may have let the cat out of the bag a little early with Spiral: From the Book of Saw being used on their site.

Spiral: From the Book of Saw sort of fits into the Saw 9 mythos, since it seems mysterious and a bit ambiguous, while still tied to the franchise as a whole. With the official title seemingly leaking now,

Official Title Of Chris Rock’s Saw Movie May’ve Been Revealed

The Saw franchise has been around since 2004, and like the vast majority of long-running horror brands, the law of diminishing returns set in a long time ago. The first installment is still the most fondly-remembered of them all, and brought something different to the genre when graphically-violent ‘torture porn’ was still all the rage, before the series focused more on the elaborate and gruesome traps cooked up by Tobin Bell’s Jigsaw as the main selling point.

Despite there already having been eight Saw movies, with the concept well and truly run into the ground in the process, there’s still a major amount of intrigue surrounding the upcoming ninth entry, due almost entirely to the involvement of Chris Rock. The 54 year-old comedian isn’t exactly the first name that springs to mind when you think of Saw, but not only is he executive producing, he also came up with the idea for the story.

The Saw Reboot is hitting theaters this year and it's quite possibly the most interesting entry in the series coming our way since the original. This, despite the fact that we know very little about it. What we do know is that comedian Chris Rock pitched the idea and that's what got the ball rolling. The Saw franchise isn't known for its humor, but Rock decided to inject just a little bit of it into this new movie. But fear not, horror fans, as Rock also promises that it's going to be bloody and gory, very much in line with what we've come to expect.

Chris Rock recently appeared at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. Rock is appearing in Fargo season 4 and was helping promote the show. During the event, he was asked why exactly he wanted to get involved with the long-running horror franchise. Here's what Rock had to say about it.
