15 Killer Body Counts
The leaves have changed colors, there's a chill in the air, and the kids on your block are already plotting their elaborate revenge for the lousy off-brand candy you're planning on putting in the bowl, come October 31st.

Critics Consensus: Guess Saw 3D's Tomatometer!
This week at the movies, Jigsaw's comin' at ya in three dimensions in Saw 3D, starring Tobin Bell and Cary Elwes. What do the critics have to say? With the possible exceptions of Elvis and 2Pac, few can rival Jigsaw for posthumous productivity. We'd love to tell you if the critics think the mad, methodical killer is back in top form in Saw 3D, but few of them have seen the movie at press time. This time out, the survivors of Jigsaw's evil schemes seek help from a self help guru - who turns out to have a dark past of his own. Kids, stop playing with that chainsaw and guess that Tomatometer!

Total Recall: Movie Gimmicks
Another year, another Saw movie: This Friday, when the seventh installment in the series reaches theaters, it'll extend an annual tradition that stretches back to 2004. If you're wondering how much further Jigsaw's legacy can possibly go, you're not alone -- but this time around, the addition of 3-D introduces a new visual component, as well as adding yet another chapter to the long Hollywood saga of using gimmicks to sell movies. It got us thinking about some of the other would-be innovations introduced over the years -- and we figured if Smell-O-Vision, SignScope, and Sensurround were good enough for the studios that backed them, it's about time they got some recognition. So step right up, ladies and gents, for the most sensational, amazingly lifelike, thrillingly spellbinding Total Recall you've ever seen...or your money back!
