The Saw franchise keeps on popping up, this time under a different title but still with Saw DNA and possible Jigsaw copycat. Not since the run of Nightmare On Elm Street or Friday the 13th, has a horror franchise risen again (without being remade – yes NMOES and F13 have been remade but I am not counting that in their original franchise run) With Spiral Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson are onboard with Saw veteran Darren Lynn Bousman back behind the camera.
A sadistic mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in SPIRAL, the terrifying new chapter from the book of SAW. Working in the shadow of an esteemed police veteran (Samuel L. Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock) and his rookie partner (Max Minghella) take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past. Unwittingly entrapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the center of the killer’s morbid game.
SPIRAL stars Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, and Samuel L. Jackson, and is produced by the original SAW team of Mark Burg and Oren Koules. The film is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and written by Josh Stolberg & Pete Goldfinger.
