SLASH’S SHITFACED SATURDAY
A profitable Indie horror film or mainstream Hollywood hit, always deserves as many sequels as audiences will keep forking over their cash to see; films like NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, ALIEN, STAR WARS, LORD OF THE RINGS, ALL the MARVEL SUPERHEROES, HOSTEL, THE RING, RE-ANIMATOR & on & on & on.
Next week we will tackle the incredible SAW SAGA. SAW was released in 2004, had a tiny budget & imaginative director. It went on to become one of the most profitable Indie Horror films of all time. Actor Tobin Bell, playing Jigsaw appears in all of the sequels, SAW II (2005), SAW III (2006), SAW IV (2008), SAW V (2009), then SAW 3D: THE FINAL CHAPTER (2010)–which hardly ever means the actual FINAL fucking chapter ( ie: FRIDAY THE 13TH: JASON series ). I read where SAW VII is now in pre-production, set for a release in 2015.
SAW (2004) originally was slapped with a NC-17 rating; director James Wan had to snip like a bastard to bring the rating down to “R”.
