Ahead of Spiral: From the Book of Saw‘s release in theatres on 13 May 2021, Lionsgate has just released a 3-minute opening scene for the movie. Do note that the movie is rated R21 (previous instalments of Saw were rated M18) in Singapore.
You have been warned, but the opening scene is pretty gruesome. It is NOT for the faint of heart.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
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 (Samuel L. Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock) and his rookie partner (Max Minghella) 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.
Spiral stars Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, and Samuel L. Jackson, and is produced by the original Saw team of Mark Burg and Oren Koules. The film is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and written by Josh Stolberg & Pete Goldfinger.
