all of you sick moviegoers into “torture porn,” get ready to come in
your pants: Saw IV, the latest sequel in the ultra-violent Saw film
series, hits theaters
tonight at midnight. Jigsaw, the serial killer and protagonist who died
in Saw III, will somehow wreak havoc from the grave in the newest
installment, providing bloodshed, screams, tears and entertainment for
all of you violence perverts who enjoy this shit.
Saw IV is expected to dominate a slow weekend at the boxoffice, with
its only competition coming from Dan in Real Life—a much less hyped
comedy starring Steve Carell and Juliette Binoche. But just in case one
more night of torture isn’t enough to satiate fans’ sick obsession,
producers have already confirmed that Saw V and Saw VI are in the works and they’re scheduled to be released Halloween 2009 and 2010.
Tobin Bell, the actor who plays the supposedly deceased Jigsaw, has
already signed on for both those films, which casts some serious doubt
on whether or not he’s actually dead. For those of you who don’t
recognize Bell’s name, you may remember him as Peter Kingsley
in the second season of the TV series 24, a corrupt businessman who
tries to start World War III. To recap: He’s a neo-Adolph Hitler by day
and a psychotic, bloodthirsty serial killer by night. What a guy.
