“SAW” To Celebrate 10th Anniversary in Theaters this FallNews Samuel Zimmerman
Ten years ago, the stylish, grisly, giallo-infused SAW introduced the world to bright new talent in James Wan and Leigh Whannell and ushered in a new era of horror. To celebrate its anniversary and all it wrought, Lionsgate is re-releasing the 2004 film in a very special one-week engagement this October 31st.
Beginning with select screenings on October 30th, SAW will bring Jigsaw back to theaters this fall and allow fans to revisit, and possibly introduce younger audiences to, the film on the big screen.“The launch of SAW was a signature event in Lionsgate’s history, establishing our first franchise and paving the way for our growth into a global studio,” said Lionsgate President of Acquisitions & Co-Productions Jason Constantine. “We are excited for our fans to revisit the twisted magic that first blew their minds on Halloween 2004.”
SAW of course focuses on “two men who wake up in a secure lair of a serial killer, with a dead body lying between them. The killer, nicknamed ‘Jigsaw,’ leaves them tape recorded messages with details of how to make it out alive. The only way for one man to make it out alive is to do the unthinkable. The two men desperately try to find a way out, while also trying to figure out who’s behind their kidnapping.”
