'His disease is still spreading,' a warning in the newly-found made-for-television promo of the sixth 'Saw' film read.
In an effort to promote "Saw VI", the first TV spot for Lionsgate's latest horror thriller has been unleashed. Brought forth by Bloody-Disgusting, the 30-second snippet teases more of the deadly traps terror ignited by Jigsaw as well as provides a look at some never-before-seen footage from the newest "Saw" film.
Continuing the story of Jigsaw's lethal games for a second chance in life, this sixth installment of the horror thriller series uncovers that Special Agent Strahm is dead. Now, Detective Hoffman has emerged as the unchallenged successor to Jigsaw's legacy. However, when the FBI draws closer to Hoffman, he is forced to set a game into motion, and Jigsaw's grand scheme is finally understood.
"Saw VI" sees the replacement of director David Hackl with "The Strangers" editor Kevin Greutert in the directing position. While facing a change in the helmer, it holds on to screenwriter duo Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton for the film's script. Tobin Bell, Shawnee Smith, Costas Mandylor and Mark Rolston are among the cast members returning to the series. This movie is scheduled to open wide in the U.S. on October 23.
