The Saw franchise redefined horror movies in the 2000s by making the “torture porn” genre mainstream through the intricate Jigsaw traps that captured our collective attention. Fifteen years ago today, the classic “I want to play a game” line was first burned into our minds. The films urged us to watch people fight to stay alive in some of the most gruesome ways imaginable.
How well do you think you know the traps from the films, though? Test out your knowledge of the Saw franchise by seeing if you can identify which trap belongs to which movie through a single screenshot.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Chris Rock would be giving a “reimagined” reboot of the Saw franchise. The movie script is set to be written by Jigsaw writers Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg.
Darren Lynn Bousman is also directing, marking his return after directing the second, third and fourth movies in the franchise. Rock will act as executive producer alongside Daniel Heffner and series creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell.
“I’ve been a fan of Saw since the first film in 2004,” Rock says. “I am excited by the opportunity to take this to a really intense and twisted new place.”

Joe Drake, chairman of Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group, is equally as excited for the reboot.
“When Chris Rock came to us and described in chilling detail his fantastic vision that reimagines and spins off the world of the notorious Jigsaw Killer, we were all in. Chris conceived this idea, and it will be completely reverential to the legacy of the material while reinvigorating the brand with his wit, creative vision and passion for this classic horror franchise.”

Original series producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules are also on board for the new movie.
“Chris wants to put his own spin on the Saw franchise in the way Eddie Murphy put a completely fresh perspective on buddy-cop films with 48 Hrs.,” Burg and Koules state. “This new Saw is going to be an event film in the making for horror fans. It will have all of the twists and turns and hardcore layers that our fans expect directed by one of the masters of the craft, Darren Lynn Bousman. We can’t wait to get started.”
Currently, the film drops on May 15, 2020.
