 New Image Of A Familiar Face in Saw 3D

Jigsaw, in some form or another, will be back and ready to play another twisted game in Saw 3D, which arrives in theaters this October.  Based off the official trailer, the seventh entry in the Saw series  promises to be a no-holds-barred horror experience for fans of the genre.

Saw 3D features the return of several characters from previous chapters in the Saw saga, including Costas Mandylor as Detective Mark Hoffman, Betsy Russell as former Mrs. Jigsaw herself, Jill Tuck, and of course Tobin Bell as the devious mastermind behind it all (despite his character having been dead for several movies now).

This seventh installment revolves around a group of individuals that managed to survive Jigsaw’s deadly games and gruesome traps in previous films – naturally, they were left more than a bit psychologically traumatized by their experiences.  Self-help guru Bobby Dagen (played by franchise newcomer Sean Patrick Flanery) offers his assistance in helping the survivors move on, though his own dark past soon – according to the official plot synopsis – “unleashes a new wave of terror.”

One particular character from the first Saw film will also return for Saw 3D.  Those who wish to remain in the dark about who this mystery character is until they actually see the movie should stop here – SPOILER AHEAD.



Still here?  Check out the new image from Saw 3D below, which features an all-too familiar face:

That’s right – none other than Dr. Lawrence Gordon  (Cary Elwes) will be one of the survivors seeking (and assumedly failing to find) closure in Saw 3D.  The character was last seen in the first Saw, dragging himself out of the bathroom due to that whole sawing-his-own-leg-off thing.  The previously-released comic book spinoff Saw: Rebirth revealed some additional history about the doctor and why exactly Jigsaw chose to target him – suffice it to say, Dr. Gordon has done some less than admirable deeds in the past.

Will the amputated doctor make it to the end of Saw 3D alive?  Whatever his ultimate fate may be, Saw 3D director Kevin Greutert – who also directed Saw VI and worked as an editor on the first five films in the franchise – has promised that the seventh Saw pic will wrap the series up.

Here is how he put it in a recent interview with Official Saw News:

“We would like to go out with a bang, not a whimper, so everyone has agreed to decree ‘Saw 3D’ the final chapter.  No one wants to see the series deteriorate in quality, as is often the case when something good goes on for too long.”

Rumors that Saw 8 could happen have already sprung up, while a lot of moviegoers would argue that the Saw franchise is already well past its prime.  We will just have to wait and see how the seventh Saw fares at the box office, before we know for certain whether or not this series is definitely going to end.

Saw 3D arrives in regular and 3D theaters in the U.S. on October 29th, 2010.

  1. Guys the trailer for the new saw is weird like if jigsaw is doing this to the world. I wonder what this guy will do in saw 7. Not a saw fan at all,i just liked the first one,but im curius to see how it “ends”

  2. I had thought after Saw IV and V that the series was about to dry up and die, but Saw VI was pretty freaking good. I have high hopes for the final chapter.

  3. Holy crap the cat returns! Huh? Anybody get that reference?

  4. I havents seen parts 5 and 6,i hated part 4 so i stopped.

  5. i cant wait for this one and it is about time we see gordon since the first one back in 04. i do hope it does well so we get at least one more like they said they would do but then last year SAW didnt do to good because every was crazy about paranormal activity which bored the crap out of me and wasted about 2 hours of my life ill never get back. so ill see SAW 3D but will pass on PA 2.

  6. I could see them doing a spinn-off type series that is similar but with a whole new protagonist (if you could call him that) and approach — Dr. Gordon would be one of the few who I think Saw fans would be excited to see as the new baddie. They could say they’ve finished the Saw series and yet still continue to make bank on the name.

  7. Saw the first one and I loved it… but how would someone with half a brain make a second? simple, dont. The 2nd was bad, the third one was stupid. and the forth one didnt make any sense… I stopped watching these because they were getting so bad, but I watched 1-4 simply because I thought that one, just one may be half as good as the first… I was wrong over and over again, and I dont think that this one will be any different…

    • 5 was the worst, so you were spared to have not watched it, but I think 6 was about as good as the first — unfortunately you pretty much need to see them all to have them totally make sense and get their full affect.

      • You need to see them all in order for them to make sense. But they’re not too terribly long. They do all make sense though if you pay attention. They’re definitely “thinking” movies. Like Inception (not really), but with alot of blood.

  8. I ABSOLUTELY HATE the last what seven movies? Lol. The only ones I thought were good were the first two. BUT, this movie actually looks decent. And Cary Elwes being back makes it all the better.

    Plus, Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington is in it. So I got to see it now. (Even with their totally GARBAGE album that just came out.)

  9. honestly i think saw 3d will b the best one!! i loved all the other ones and i know ill love this one…i watched this seasons Scream queens for the first time and i was rooting for Gabs the whole time so im pretty sure itll b a good movie since she’ll b in it! :)
