Saw 3

For those of you who saw (and enjoyed?) "Saw" and "Saw 2", you may be pleased to know that there is going to be a "Saw 3".

But, really, who didn't see that coming?

http://imdb.com/title/tt0489270/

It will apparently open in theatres on October 27.

Of course there is going to be a Saw 3! We knew that before the 2nd one opened, but of course, the opening weekend solidified those plans. I'll be checking it out, hopefully they can keep the formula fresh...otherwise, threads around here are going to be filled with that "beating a dead horse" smilie.

Eh, say what you want about Saw (and I know there are a lot of Saw haters around) but at least they have a plot. It might not be for everybody, but after The Hills Have Eyes and Hostel, I'll take Saw anyday.

I'm in complete agreement. Can't wait for Saw 3.

I liked Saw 2 a lot more than the first outing, but I'd argue that Hostel and The Hills Have Eyes actually have plots. Hell, Hostel's plot actually rises above most recent horror films including the Saw films.

While I disagree about Saw 2 (I thought Saw 1 was a much, much better movie), I'd agree that Hostel has plot, it's done in a casual manner and dictated through character actions but is definitely still there and fairly decent in its own right. Still really want to see The Hills Have Eyes.

Also, I'm game for Saw 3. 2 was a huge disappointment, but there were hints of future potential in it.

Yeah this is one I'll be there on opening weekend for.

If they wanted to make it really frightening, they could give the victims the choice of sawing off their own limbs or sitting through a showing of Hostel. That would be tough.

Hostel is a tougher call for me because I intensely disliked it, and personally I didn't think there was much of a plot, but I certainly wouldn't argue with those that did like it. I really wanted to enjoy Hostel but I'm on the other side of the polarizing line, it just wasn't my kind of movie. I'm a little more strict about The Hills Have Eyes not having anything even close to a plot. I actually enjoyed it more than Hostel because it was more visceral and urgent, but it was just people being chased once the action got started (hope I'm not spoiling anything for anybody ). I think a better adjective for me is that the Saw movies are engaging, I'm actually interested in how the plot unfolds, not necessarily who lives and dies. As long as they keep it creative and keep the main players involved (which I read an above post regarding the key people sticking around, which is awesome), I think it's going to be a great modern horror franchise, which I really can't think of another.

I enjoyed the original film which is far superior to the sequel. Everyone seems to like the sequel since they just want more body count,gore and sadism. But without any of the heart that the original had. It just felt empty and bland and nowhere nearly as enjoyable as the original film.

So I hope for Saw 3,they try to improve it with everything that made the original film so involving. Or if not,at least make it an over the top insanely entertaining shockfest that pulls no punches.

I love a good gruesome horror film as much as the next person(I greatly enjoyed Hostel..which does have a good plot and keeps you interested in the proceedings..and The Hills Have Eyes). But Saw 2 just didn't do much of anything for me. It had some decent moments. But overall left me cold,not into the storyline at all or anything.

I'll definately check it out, just as I have the others, by renting it. So far, I've enjoyed the movies, but not enough to shell out $9 a ticket to see them.
