Saw 3Ds Tobin Bell & Kevin Greutert
Best Horror Movies Ever
Best horror movies ever is okay with seeing this overextended Saw franchise come to an end…hopefully. Tobin Bell & Kevin Greutert talk about the series and the ending of a long running (I guess 6-7 years is now considered long) franchise. Best movies ever enjoyed the first couple for what they were, but it seemed to open the door for what later became known at the ‘torture porn’ movement.
“It’s time to stop,” said producer Oren Koules. “We have told the story we wanted to tell, and this is going to be a great farewell.” Best horror movies ever couldn’t agree more! It was time to stop a while back.
That story stretches back all the way to 2004, when James Wan’s made-for-pennies original “Saw” became a sleeper Halloween hit. Starring Cary Elwes, Danny Glover, and a pre-”Lost” Michael Emerson and Ken Leung, the film presented the serial-killer format in a chilling new light: two strangers woke up chained to pipes in a bathroom and discovered through a series of games that they’d have to saw off their own foot to escape, or innocents on the outside would be killed. Best horror movies ever enjoyed this one for what it was.
The film spawned five sequels and a slew of imitators, and is largely credited with creating the “torture porn” genre. And its storytelling (and death traps) has grown increasingly complex over time. Jigsaw (Tobin Bell: best horror movies ever), the film’s serial killer, died at the end of “Saw III,” but flashbacks and recordings have allowed the producers to continually cast Bell in the films; since “Saw II” he has been the male lead of every installment.
Still, USA Today reports that after last year’s “Saw VI” only brought in about $28 million (half the take of the others), the producers felt it was time to bring the enterprise to a halt. When the horse has been kicked that long and not producing any more money, the studios usually say this and that it’s stopped being one of their best horror movies ever.
“Saw 3D” brings the story full circle, as Elwes’ character returns to head up a support group for Jigsaw survivors. And the series’ complex storytelling method (the films’ narratives continually intersect with their predecessors; one film’s twist was – spoiler alert — that it occurred at the same time as, and not after, the events of the previous “Saw”) will finally pay dividends. Koules, who worked on all seven films, intends to leave no stone unturned when it comes to resolving the story. It seems ironic that the last of Saw will be in the soon to be overused 3D format and going up against Paranormal Activity 2.
