    Anyone looking forward to the final SAW installment? Its currently being filmed in 3D and its going and looking quite well. I think this will take a whole new turn on the franchise and hopefully they will go out with a bang!

    Wow...seventh installment? I had no idea it had so many sequels. I really enjoyed the first one. It was smart and fresh. I think I viewed #2...might have been 3rd...not sure. Ryan, in your opinion, are the others worth seeing or are they really just milking the brand name?

    The last one I saw had Jigsaw in it I think, but his apprentice was thrown into a pit of needles, which one was that?

    Well, the 1st was the best, the 2nd is the best sequel, the 6th is the best since the second. 3, 4 and 5 are just good fun, but not quite as good story's as the others. But some eye watering traps.

    One thing I will say about the Saw films, and something I really appreciate about them as well, is that they've got more brains in their heads than most horror that comes out now.

    At least these films offer a continuing mystery that challenges you to follow, it's not just mindless gore like some will have you believe, there's a good story being told here and each film unfolds and gives us another piece.

    I thoroughly enjoy each Saw film and welcome a final one, could do without the 3D, though.

    Saw VII Release was just pushed up a week to October 22.


    October 29 seemed to be kind of crowded and it will allow them to avoid the head-to-head with Paranormal Activity 2 after getting spanked by the first film last year (despite Saw VI being one of the best films in the franchise, IMO).

    ^ Since the bulk of their target audience is probably more interested in going to parties on Halloween weekend than going to a movie theater, it's probably a good move to get away from that date anyway.

    Looks like this is back on October 29.
     

    And is it really in 3D? The trailer is pretty subtle about it (
