trailer break: ‘Saw VI’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

I guess we have to admire a little-engine-the-could franchise like the Saw movies. Every Halloween, like clockwork, there’s another one…

Oh, we don’t have to admire it? Good. What does it mean that audiences can’t get enough of people being tortured, people being forced into situations in which they have to decide who lives and who dies, and a psychopath that gets off on it all? What does it mean that audiences get off on it all? (And this one looks to be really bad: Spain has slapped it with an X rating… and Spain already has a not-under-18 rating, so this isn’t even the equivalent of the U.S.’s NC-17: it’s even more restrictive.)

I keep waiting for these movies to die, but there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight: there’s already a Saw VII slated for next year…

Saw VI opens in the U.S. and the U.K. on October 23, without benefit of press screenings.
