“Jigsaw” brings back the terror of the brutal games created by the original jigsaw killer, John Kramer.

“Jigsaw”, a continuation of the “Saw” series which has been on hiatus since 2010, came to theaters on Oct. 27. Surprisingly this is the least gruesome movie from the series. During the movie, a new group of victims, Mitch (Mandela Van Peebles,) Ryan (Paul Braunstein,) Anna (Laura Vandervoort,) and a handful of others are forced to fight for their lives. They are given clues on how to escape and multiple challenges that they need to accomplish.

“Jigsaw” directed by Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig, also known for their work “Daybreakers,” is the eighth movie in the ‘Saw’ series. In the movie, there are mainly two places where everything takes place, the torture chambers and the morgue. Throughout the movie, the scenes bounce around from these two places and once in awhile they throw in a new location just to keep you from getting bored.

The movie is based on none other than John Kramer (Tobin Bell,) the original jigsaw killer who has been dead for ten- years.There are many twists that leave you questioning what is going on. While watching this movie, you truly have to put together your own pieces of the jigsaw puzzle to understand the plot twists that occur. The last 10-20  minutes of the movie is where the puzzle becomes complete.

“Jigsaw” has a 33% rating on rotten tomatoes and it is rated R due to gruesome content.
