“From the beginning, you have watched others suffer,” says Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) in the new trailer, embedded below. “Now it is your turn.” Question, Jigsaw: Will we suffer because this 3-D final chapter might just be a gimmicky attempt to revive a hack-neyed (ha!) Saw franchise? (Especially after Saw VI‘s poor performance at the box office in October.) Or because you literally intend to inflict bodily harm on movie-goers? I vote the the second option, not just because Jigsaw completes his latter sentence with “…to play” (unfair editing alert, oops!), but also because the trailer seems to indicate that the Saw 3D theater experience will involve spiky harnesses, flying objects, and characters that will literally grab you from your seat. Eat your heart out, Matinee!
More frightening, to me, is the trailer for the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror flick Julia’s Eyes, which seems to have an appealing, twist-y plot (a woman with a degenerative eye disease comes in contact with all things spooky while investigating her twin sister’s death), complete with a whole Wait Until Dark-esque climax.
But I’ll let you make the final decision, PopWatchers. Are you willing to be Saw 3D‘s “last piece of the puzzle”? Or would you rather gaze upon Julia’s Eyes?
