Spiral Movie Clip Shows The Killer Taunting Samuel L. Jackson

Recommended Posts

Samuel L. Jackson is being taunted by a killer in a new clip from Spiral: From the Book of Saw. The ninth film in the long-running horror franchise, Spiral is set to bring together Jackson, Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, and Zoie Palmer as they confront their city's gruesome past. When a copycat Jigsaw Killer starts terrorizing the city, Rock's Detective Zeke Banks and his partner, Detective William Schenk, are ensnared in a grisly mystery after they volunteer to take charge of the investigation into the murders.

Spiral will be the first film in the Saw franchise since 2017's Jigsaw, and Lionsgate is heavily invested in the franchise's future. A sequel, Saw X, is already in the works, as is a potential Saw television series. First, though, the franchise will delve into its past with Spiral and bring along some family drama with it. Jackson and Rock play an estranged father and son duo whose relationship will be put to the test as the murders continue to rock their city. A new clip shows just how involved Jackson's character gets and teases whether he'll make it out alive.

Released via Bloody Disgusting, the clip shows Jackson's character, Marcus Banks, entering a warehouse. Emblazoned in red paint (or possibly blood) across the wall are the words, "Do you want to play a game, Chief Banks?" recalling the iconic catchphrase of the original Jigsaw. Naturally, Marcus doesn't heed this eerie warning and proceeds further into the warehouse in search of the killer.

While never beloved by critics, the Saw franchise certainly captured the hearts of horror lovers, making it one of the most successful horror franchises of all time. It also inspired a wave of gruesome flicks, with Jigsaw's increasingly gory traps tricking his unwitting victims into doing some very graphic things. From the looks of Spiral's trailer, the film will be bringing back those iconic traps and even calling back to the first movie's moral dilemma when Rock's character is seemingly chained up with nothing but a handsaw to set him free.

Whether or not Spiral is the dawn of a new era for the Saw franchise remains an open question. While critics have never loved the films, that hasn't really mattered. If those who enjoy the Saw movies are eager for a new entry, they could propel the Rock-led film to massive success. Although Jigsaw is technically dead, his legacy lives on, and Spiral: From the Book of Saw will continue the kills as long as audiences turn out to see them.
