It doesn't matter who plays in it. It will get bad reviews and make a lot of money. Oh yes there will be cash. Until the series just becomes a joke like the Police Academy series and dies into obscurity.

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. I mean, she's DEAD! Why the hell are they bringing her back? In fact, since Jigsaw is dead, why are the doing this sequel to begin with?!?
This reminds me of the fourth installment of the Friday the 13th series, titled The Final Chapter. Now, with a title like that, you'd think that would be the end, right? Wrong! Then comes A New Beginning, with a copycat killer. Since everyone thought that was a retarded storyline, they brought Jason back for the sixth film as a (wait for it) friggin' zombie. Now, it's not like this series made any sense to begin with, but do you see how much stupider these horror franchises become when they achieve success?
Mark my words, by the time Saw V comes out, Jigsaw will be a vampire. When Saw IX rolls around, the setting will be futuristic. Ten years later, he'll be fighting Mr. Brooks.

Thanks for ruining it for me, bro.

Ruining it? Is the news of her character being dead a spoiler to you?
Jun 5 - 06:10 AM
Pas the point Vicens
Jigsaw will be back in it, but not in it. He will only be in video recordings telling Jeff what to do, but that doesnt mean that Jigsaw is alive being that he set everything up already. And who knows, maybe Shawnee will be in a flash back. There are still questions unanswered from Saw 3, like, what was in the envelope he gave Amanda?

[b]Oh, I know the answer, it's:[/b]Nobody gives a crap! Seriously, now the filmmakers are just getting desperate.
C'mon, does anyone really want to know useless info like, "what was Jigsaw's connection to Obi?" or "what was in the tape that Jigsaw poured wax over?" These are the most minute and worthless questions that only die-hard fans of the series would ask.
Most people, normal people, agree that the series has overstayed its welcome. Hell, some people think that it overstayed its welcome three years ago. I hope that this movie and its "unanswered questions" bomb at the box office so that Lionsgate can finally lay off of its torture-fest franchise.

Metafact...I agree with you 100% the franchise to me has already become a joke..they will be the first franchise to have 10 sequals in 10 yrs. just slightly surpassing the ever so great police academy/ies
Jun 5 - 05:27 AM
first off, this series IS a joke. it sucks. wait soon...and see a REAL horror flick, Hostel 2. Saw is ridiculously predictable and its borderline boring. and to even THINK that this chic would pass up this role is insane. cuz...she has so many other opportunities?? yeah HOOOOK. i wouldn't mind the series if they'd do some brainstorming and come up with GOOD/ORIGINAL IDEAS, or get people that can act. but its really no better than a freakishly low budget horror flick thats straight to dvd at your local video store. this series is dangerously close to...Saw...In Space
Jun 5 - 05:42 AM
It would hardly call Saw predicatable...but they need to stop. The third one was fine...but...please not a fourth one...please.
Jun 5 - 06:34 AM
You Saw bashers need to give it a rest. It's an original and fun franchise that has yet to really go stale. The twists are great, the deaths are beyond amazing (and twisted) and the story is actually pretty cool.
If not for Saw what horror franchise would we even have?? NOTHING... Pretty much everything else released is garbage.
Jun 5 - 09:25 AM
[b]I wouldn't go that far[/b]
the saw movies have never been fun, they are an exact mimic of one of the greatest films....SEVEN! the director of the first one even stated that seven was his inspiration for the saw movies, and it isn't all that fun, there is a lot of terrible acting, terrible script writing, and even worse cinimatography, honestly, how many freaking times did saw 3 flash back or the camera went berserk and flailed about! it has definately gone stale and they have run out of ideas! please god, stop this franchise from continuing to exist!

[b]All Hail "Seven"[/b]"What's in the box? C'mon. WHAT'S IN THE BOX?"
Jun 5 - 09:10 PM
Priceless. lol. That's gotta be the best line in a thriller ever. "What's in the box?!" So simple, and yet so not.
Jun 6 - 04:36 AM
[b]Oh, really? Then what about...[/b]
The Descent, The Devil's Rejects, 28 Days Later, Shaun of the Dead (although I suppose that's more of a horror/comedy), the Dawn of the Dead remake, Land of the Dead, Open Water, Cabin Fever, Slither, and Night Watch? Those were all way better than those stupid Saw flicks.
Jun 5 - 02:18 PM
[b]Um[/b]I gave up on the franchise after the second one. It just lost the thrills and shock value that the first one had. This can't turn out good if they just churn out sequel after sequel to make some extra cash.
Jun 5 - 11:41 AM
So the movie opens on Oct. 26, yet the actress and director both deny involvement. Assuming that the movie has already been shot, can someone explain that to me?
Jun 5 - 12:24 PM
Since I know I can't stop Saw IV from being made, I'll just pray that the very thought of Saw V never reaches the minds of ANYBODY involved in any of the saw movies.
Jun 5 - 12:32 PM
[b]No.[/b]Jigsaw isn't dead, he's been signed on for the fourth film.
That on here on Rotten Tomatoes months ago, bud.
As for Shawnee Smith's character, I predict she'll die in the beginning of the fourth film. But THAT is just a prediction.
Jigsaw will be there and that's confirmed, just look through the archives.
Jun 5 - 05:42 PM
See? See? What did I tell you? Jigsaw got his neck sliced and his skull cut open in the third movie, yet he's "magically" coming back for this sequel.
We'll, that's an interesting prediction regarding Shawnee Smith's character, especially considering how she was shot in the neck at the end of Saw III. Those must be some amazing vampiric abilities!

Did you guys watch a different movie or was there a line in there somewhere about immortality that I missed?
Jun 6 - 04:33 AM
the saw series sucks..... there not fun........ there the cheapest form of horror i have ever seen......... it's just people getting brutally killed...... sure it would probably be fun to make........ but it's not fun to watch...... it's just retarded........ i don't mind blood and gore in movies of course...... i love the movie "dead alive" which is an extremely violent and gory horror movies i have ever seen but i love it for it and it does it in like the funnest way possible........ i also like the evil dead/army of darkness series...... but do they really need so many sequels for such a lame ass series like this....... well i don't think so........ but they will probably bring in like at least 10 more movies since all the teenagers love seeing people get ripped in half and think it has some value.
Jun 5 - 08:42 PM
Oh man, it's good to see so many Saw-haters in one spot. It's both sad and hilarious to see people discussing and debating the Saw continuity and mythos. I'm sick of hearing people claim how scary and original the franchise is, and how it "saved" the horror genre. Saw II was so uninspired, and would have been better suited as a made-for-tv cable horror flick (needless to say I didn't see the third one).
Jun 5 - 10:37 PM
why do people who don't want to see a movie care if it gets made or not? I'll never understand it. If a franchise keeps producing movies that I don't want to see then I simply won't go see it, I'm not going to go around and say it must be stopped. I mean if others want to see it then what difference does it make to me? It's so silly.
Jun 6 - 12:24 AM
[b]Will she get topless!!!!!!!!!!!!![/b]That's all that matters....
Jun 6 - 03:02 AM
These movies only make lots of money because stupid teenagers go to see them so that they can be grossed out. Personally, I go to horror movies to be SCARED. Gore is not scary.
