In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the game changing film, Saw will return to theaters for one week beginning October 31, 2014. The theatrical re-release of Saw will see a whole new generation of horror fans granted the opportunity to see the film on the big screen.
Saw marks the horror film debut of director James Wan (The Conjuring) and the first feature film collaboration between Wan and Saw co-writer Leigh Whannell.
Made as an independent feature on a minuscule budget, Saw was eventually acquired by LionsGate for nationwide theatrical distribution. After LionsGate’s acquisition of the film, it went on to gross over $50 Million at the box office. Saw represents the first feature to spawn a franchise for the LionsGate brand. The film has inspired a total of six sequels and introduced the world to the Jigsaw killer.
Saw follows the plight of two men that wake up trapped in an unfamiliar room, restrained by chains – a dead body lies between them. The pair are given a series of specific instructions by which they must abide and tasks they must complete if they are to make it out with their lives intact. Their will to live and resolve will be tested and their survival will ultimately depend on how much they are willing to sacrifice.
