…Saw III pulled out all the stops?


Yesterday, being the movie buff that I am, I went and saw the first possible screening of Saw III. How was it? Well, if you’re a professional movie critic, you’ll probably hate it. If you don’t give a crap about Oscar winning performances and you just want to have the pants scared off of you, and have to think a little bit along the way, you’re going to love it. A definite improvement on Saw II, and a fitting sequel to the original, Saw III features all of the “how in the hell did they think of that” games that have made the series a cult classic, good enough acting to keep you in the story (though admittedly, not the best acting in the world), and enough plot twists, turns, and revelations to keep you guessing until the very end. Surprisingly, I felt the shock value gore was toned down this time, and instead, replaced with edge of your seat anticipation. The scene is set, you know what’s going to happen, and the director in a sense lets you fill in your own gruesome details. That’s not to say there isn’t cringe worth moments, as there are plenty, just that the movie didn’t rely on them to fulfill its scare quota. All in all, Saw III is the perfect way to get you in the Halloween spirit, and a sure to be classic horror film for the horror film fans.

…Saw III looks pretty damn scarry?

The Saw series has perfected the pull no punches horror movie genre with its gross out motif and mass of moments where you know what going to happen and it still scares the pants off of you. The first movie had suspense, action, and a pretty good story to go along with it. The second movie fell off a bit, lacking that solid plot line that the first possessed, but still thrilling and chilling with the devices and situations the characters were placed in. Saw III looks to be no different, and hopefully perfects all the pieces and parts that the second movie lacked. The new trailer looks damn good, and I now know exactly what I’ll be doing on Halloween this year.
