Halloween - season of myths and mellow frightfulness
If you are a fan of the horror film genre then you will know of the Saw franchise created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell about John Kramer, a successful civil engineer diagnosed with cancer who spends the remainder of his life creating 'tests' and 'traps' for those who squandered their precious gift of life.
Jigsaw at Event Cinema Innaloo opens soon (Photograph courtesy of Studiocanal)
Jigsaw, as with all the others in the series concerns itself with blood, gore, traps and torture, mental and physical.
All over the city, bodies are turning up, each with a part missing - the crimes all bear the hallmark of serial killer John 'Jigsaw' Kramer. The only problem with that solution is the fact that Jigsaw is dead and has been for ten years ... or is he?
There are no surprises in the movie other than the plotted ones designed to keep you on the edge of your seats or peering through your fingers asking 'Is it over yet'.
Very much for the fans, this is the kind of movie that people who like this sort of thing will like.
