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.

The series consists of eight films, starting with Saw, through Saw II to Saw VI, followed by Saw 3D and now, finally, Jigsaw.

John Kramer (Tobin Bell) also trains and has a number of assistants or acolytes to carry on his work.

Saw 3D was intended to be the last, but from a working title of Saw: Legacy, Jigsaw has become the new face of the franchise.

The film stars Matt Passmore, Tobin Bell and Callum Keith Rennie and follows a new path from the franchise possibly leading to a whole new format.

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.
