If you thought Jigsaw’s deadly games ended with him…well, I’m not sure what movies you’ve been watching.
There’s another Jigsaw copycat killer (apprentice?) on the loose, and it’s up to Detective Ezekiel “Zeke’ Banks (Chris Rock) to stop him.
Check out the trailer for Spiral: From the Book of Saw below.
If you’re a fan of the Saw franchise, this movie should be right up your alley. The trailer gives us a hint of the violent, mind-bending games of the Spiral killer. Plus, we see how Rock’s character and his TV father Samuel L. Jackson will join forces to go after the sadistic killer.
Here’s the official description of Spiral from Lionsgate:
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.
Like most films planned to premiere in the last year, Spiral had a rough go due to the pandemic. It was originally slated to drop in October 2020, then bumped up to May 2020, then postponed due to COVID closures. Now, Spiral hits theaters May 14, 2021.
