10 years after the death of John Kramer (aka Jigsaw) bodies reaping the trademark signs of the serial killer with a penchant for gruesome, tortuous redemption traps/games begin surfacing again.

The eighth instalment in the Saw franchise thus follows the tried and true ‘who done it’ formula with the trademark convoluted story and twists that have become synonymous with the series.

Saw (2004) was so brilliant because it had an intensity and grime which made the viewer empathise with the trap victims. Sadly though Jigsaw is overly formulaic to reach any great heights, in fact by the end you may feel like an unwitting participant in one of Jigsaws tortuous games.
