Another Halloween, another installment of 'Saw.' Only this time, the veteran slasher franchise has to compete with upstart 'Paranormal Activity 2.' Which one will scare up the bigger audience this Halloween weekend?
New and Noteworthy:'Saw 3-D'
Starring:Tobin Bell, Cary Elwes, Costas Mandylor, Betsy Russell, Sean Patrick Flanery
Directed by:Kevin Greutert
What It's About: In the seventh (and purportedly final) installment, one of Jigsaw's surviving victims (Flanery) leads a support group for others who survived his diabolical traps. But of course, the mayhem and murder aren't over yet.
Why Should You See It? Because the creative team behind 'Saw VI' is back, including director Greutert and writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. Because Elwes, a veteran of the memorable first installment six years ago, is back as well. Because the torture devices and gore are in 3-D this time. And because this is supposedly your last chance to see a 'Saw' movie in a theater.
