I do truly love having a seasonal horror franchise, even if I'm not the biggest fan of the last few Saw films. Now that we're getting closer to October, AKA the horror genre's month long birthday party, all the marketing materials have begun emerging from their hatcheries, and there is once again little doubt that the loudest baddie of the month will be Lionsgate and Twisted Picture's torture-cherishing Saw VI (opening October 23rd).

Things are cryptic on the plot front, as per usual, but recently a new poster and the first TV spot have found release onto the Internets. I have no idea what's going on in the poster, except that it retains the tradition of forming the series' current roman numerals out of (presumably) deadly trap. Once again Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan have returned for writing duties, but Saw VI will be making a brand new director out of the series' long-time editor Kevin Greutert. According to the cast list, series regulars Shawnee Smith, Costas Mandylor, and, of course, Tobin Bell will be returning, but beyond that trap-setting trio this latest adventure into bondage and torture has a relatively unknown cast.

So click on to see a larger version of the poster to the right as well as the aforementioned TV spot, courtesy of Dread Central. Oh, and if you happen to live in Orlando, you might be interested on clicking over here for a behind-the-scenes look at how you can step into the haunted house world of Saw at Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights.
