Please Stop With Saw!
By Paul Anthony
Back in 2004 Saw came out and it was something new in an area of film that was just going down hill in that period, Horror films were becoming horrible even for a hardcore fan, so this was so new and here was a shocker it was good. Let’s be honest the music was awesome and so was the ending, in fact that song in the end is still in my head. The next two films wasn’t the same but wasn’t bad either and it finished up Jigsaw story and we learned what happened and why he did what he did. However things in Hollywood don’t end when the story ends but when the money stops. The films were often made on a small budget so the films always made money. After three the films just became trash and dragging any loose ends out. Then we had the 2017 Jigsaw which is the 8th film in the series and was suppose to be the end and when I saw it I truly felt like this was a waste but glade the series was over, then we got a shocker.
First was Chris Rock was going to reboot the film series just a few years after the last one. When this happen first thing I thought was really Chris Rock of all people he was going to reboot Saw. The News didn’t stop there, it then came out that he was going write and direct the film but then also star in the film along side Samuel L. Jackson. Was this a Joke? I said that out loud but it wasn’t a joke, it was real. As much as I want to say that is it the truth is there was more news regarding this film. One this film won’t be a reboot and will happen in the same canon as the previous eight films, it won’t be a direct sequel to Jigsaw which won’t be a bad thing. Second the current title for the film is The Organ Donor which does sound like a creepy title.
The film was going to be released in October 2020 which is the normal time for a saw movie but now they changed it to the point where the film is coming out in May of 2020. The changed was being reported that they didn’t want to go up against Halloween Kills. Putting it in May doesn’t help either because you got Black Widow, SpongeBob, Fast and Furious 9 in May as well, not to mention June films as well which includes CandyMan.
I’m not saying this is going to be a bad film, I just don’t see the point in a 9th film, when we were already sick of it. I guess this is how people of 80’s felt with Jason and Freddy. Now if this movie fails I do believe there won’t be a tenth film because the budget alone will go to the roof to pay Jackson and Rock. They will see they will take a lose with this film and put this series to sleep. Then again I could be wrong, we will see in 10 months.
