Created by Leigh Whannell and James Wan, the Saw franchise has grossed a total of $416 million ($541 million adjusted for inflation). Between 2004-10, a new film was added to the franchise each year over Halloween weekend. Now, nearly a decade after the death of the killer behind the games, Saw is back with its eighth installment.
The saga follows the work of twisted serial killer Jigsaw, who kidnaps people that he believes do not appreciate the value of life. Jigsaw, later revealed to be terminal cancer patient John Kramer, puts his subjects through physical and psychological torture in a series of "tests" and "games" to see if they have the survival instincts necessary to stay alive.
The original film was directed by James Wan, with the following sequels directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV), David Hackl (Saw V) and Kevin Greutert (Saw VI and Saw 3D). The upcoming installment of the franchise, Jigsaw, was directed by the Spierig brothers and is set for release Oct 27.
Ahead of Jigsaw's release, catch up on the films by watching all of the trailers below.
