Due to the baffling fact that the Saw movies keep making money at the box office, it’s no surprise they just keep shoving out making more and more of them. The franchise that kicked off what we now know as 21st century “torture porn” (some say it started decades ago, only in a different shape), Saw will see it’s sixth installment hit theaters this October, and now we learn that the rumors we previously reported are now confirmed: Saw VII has been greenlit and is on the way.

But first we have the first teaser trailer and first clip from Saw VI, which just came online yesterday. I think the Saw movies got past the point of an actual story a few films ago (or is that just me?) and is now, as it has been since the third one, just about how gruesome they can get with different traps.

The teaser trailer isn’t half bad I must admit, with a creative use of moving about the kind of dank and dreary location we’ve come to associate with the franchise. The clip is also pretty cool, and serves as an appropriate out of context showcase for fans of the franchise. [Clip removed by request of the studio] Check out both the teaser and the clip below (moderate NSFW warning):

The Trailer

Now onto the news about Saw VII:

Variety is reporting that David Hackl – director of Saw V and production designer on Saw II, Saw III and Saw IV – has been pegged to take the directing reigns for the seventh movie (funnily enough he didn’t direct the upcoming sixth installment). It seems that they’re going with the scribes of the gorier sequels, Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI). Mark Burg and Oren Koules will produce, as they have for all six films in the franchise.

It’s interesting to note that Saw VII’s writers, Dunstan and Melton, also wrote the upcoming horror-thriller, The Collector, which was actually first conceived to be a prequel of sorts to the Saw franchise. Go figure.

I lost interest in the Saw franchise right around the point a guy was being drowned in mashed up pig fluid in the third movie. To me, that’s when it crossed the line from gory franchise with some smart ideas and intellectual stimulation for the audience, to just plain torture porn.

As I have said before, I know there is a strong audience for that kind of stuff, and I’m not taking anything away from them. If some people love that kind of thing in their horror, that’s fine. But personally it’s just not my thing, and unless I see some wildly positive, “the franchise has turned around,” praise, I won’t be bothering with Saw VI or Saw VII.

The taped messages from Jigsaw just keep on coming

Oh, and if you’re wondering why the hell they keep making the Saw movies here’s your answer: The first five combined have brought in over $650 million at the box office. For a horror franchise that’s gone on this long, those are impressive numbers.

What do you make of the first teaser and clip from Saw VI? Are you interesting in seeing it or its now greenlit sequel, Saw VII?

Saw VI opens on October 23rd, 2009. Saw VII‘s production is set to start in January, 2010, and even though no release date has been set, you can expect an October release once again.

  1. I’ve never seen any of the films and I have no interest in doing so. The above clip is just plain disturbing. I watch films as a form of entertainment, I don’t want to be disturbed by them.

  2. I stopped after 4 and only saw that because I was bored and there was nothing else out. Can’t believe this series is still going on, they need something new.

  3. Well, I think it looks great! The movie poster has the quote “The Game Comes Full Circle” on it. Now, that could be obvious as in this circle trap, OR it could mean it goes back to Saw 1. I’m guessing they’re bringing Dr. Gordon back? :D What do you guys think?

    Also, for you haters out there… :D …. Saw has some amazing storylines, and while the author of the article is somewhat correct in saying that the last couple haven’t had storylines… Saws 1-3 are still the best. However, I have high hopes for this one with new directors and all. Hopefully they don’t let us down!

  4. I saw the first 3 of these and I have to say that the first was great, the 2nd wasnt as good BUT did have me at the edge of my seat, and the third was pretty cool. Seeing the third i thought that they were done, when they came out with a fourth I coudnt believe it! i mean come ON way too many of these and from what I read they have lost the whole story and have just become mindless slasher flicks. Unfortunately enough, thats what our public is into though

  5. Ok, I thought this guy died in number 3. How the heck is he still killing people?

  6. Let it die already. Honestly, how long can they drag it on for?

  7. Don’t these movies only cost pocket change to make? Seems like V only cost $10 million. That would only pay for a few minutes of the big summer movies…

  8. “I’ve never seen any of the films and I have no interest in doing so”

    You should definitely reconsider. They’re very good. and this one looks sweet

  9. III was definitely… too much… in the nasty factor. But they all have solid plots and they all run off each other. That’s rare these days, to go 6 movies and still follow something of a plot.

  10. “how long can they drag it on for?”

    how many friday the 13th movies are out there? Waaaaay more then 7

  11. I like these movies, a lot! But Yeah, I had given up all hope after number four. That one was just plain horrible.. But then they came back with #5, and it was as good as the first three! Looking forward to these two! :D

    Let the gore begin!

  12. On a note of the whole Dr. Gordon topic…

    At the end of Saw V when agent Strahm is in the house form Saw II, he goes down through the door in the floor. Before he finds the room with the glass box, there’s a trail of blood on the floor. (possibly the blood from a leg missing a foot)

    Then again this could just be showing that he’s there by the bathroom, but they’ve mention Dr. Gordon in many other Saw movies so maybe they do have big plans for him

  13. well, if that was the case then they must have given the series a great deal of thought. And that in it self are just showing how good this franchise is!

    Maybe I should rewatch all of them again to see where it leads, maybe there are some clues in every movie?

  14. OMG! I definetly agree that they should stop these series and just start a whole new thing. But I admire the way they portray the way he kills people sometimes I just can’t help but laugh and sometimes it really does disturb me when they slowly are ripped apart but horror movies are an art and they are doing alright. But definetly finish this series and make another story

  15. I like ‘em. Own all five and will probably have a “Saw Fest’” to catch up with the plots before seeing this one, well you need to really.
    The plot structures from the five films have all intertwined very cleverly and are not just standard generic slasher pics.
    Production standards are the same right the way through too (although some could argue that that’s no problem!)
    Funnily enough these are the only films of the “torture porn” genre that I like. Others like Hostel aren’t very good (IMO).
    Like has been mentioned, these films do very well and so long as they keep the story referencing and interlacing with the others in the series, I’ll happily watch ‘em.
