Saw VI (2009)

I've often wondered if the Saw franchise is going to turn into another Friday The 13th series with an astronomical number of sequels. I need to state first and foremost, I am a fan of the Saw franchise. While all the movies have not been great, most have been entertaining. The 4th has probably been the most disappointing to me. It was way to complicated to make much sense with all the same screen flashbacks and way too much information. I liked the 5th one fairly well, but none can compare to the original or even the 2nd one. It was the games and obviously the results of the games that made the movies interesting. However, there was a perverted sense of reason and judgment that Jigsaw threw in to almost make it morally acceptable... almost. Tobin Bell as Jigsaw is a refreshing serial killer. Not your typical killer who is only satisfying his own lust for blood, but claims he has never killed any one... the games do the killing.

I saw on that Saw VII has already been approved before Saw VI has even been released. It does make you wonder what more they can do to make the series meaning and not just a bloody bunch of games. There has to be a purpose behind the games. Justice, no matter how perverted must be the reason someone dies in the Saw movies. We have gone to all the Saw movies at the theater and have watched most on DVD after they have been released. I'm sure we will continue the pattern because we are fans. Check out the trailer below... it does look promising.
