With less than three days left to go before the theatrical release of Spiral: From the Book of Saw on May 14, Lionsgate has released the opening scene clip from Darren Lynn Bousman’s ninth Saw installment, providing us a preview of one of the film’s many gruesome traps. The video features an unnamed detective as he gets captured by a Jigsaw copycat with a pig mask, who chains him up by his tongue in the middle of active train tracks. Now, the detective must choose whether to let his tongue get severed or get rammed by a speeding train. Check out the full clip in the player below!
A criminal mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in Spiral, the terrifying new chapter from the book of Saw. Working in the shadow of his father, an esteemed police veteran, brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks and his rookie partner take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past. Unwittingly entrapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the center of the killer’s morbid game.
The ninth installment of the Saw series will be led by Chris Rock (Head of State), Samuel L. Jackson (MCU films), Max Minghella (The Handmaid’s Tale), Marisol Nichols (Riverdale, 24), and Zoie Palmer (Dark Matter, Wynonna Earp).
Spiral: From the Book of Saw is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, who helmed the second, third, and fourth installments of the franchise, from a screenplay written by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, based on a story conceived by Rock.
The film is produced by longtime Saw producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules – who are back once again to shepherd this re-imagining with Chris Rock, long-time Saw executive producer Daniel Heffner and the original Saw creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell set as executive producers.
