“What are we having for dinner, sweety?”
“Torture and pain! Mwahahahahahahahah!!!!!”
Or, you know, something like that.
I, like many other people, have been a big fan of the SAW posters. They always managed to make the films seem special and interesting without having to show too much. Of course, what they did show was pretty gory.
But time passes, and we are now at the fourth installment of the franchise. So it’s only to be expected that most of the good ideas will have been used up now.
The new poster actually surprised me with it’s concept. It was not something I was expecting, and although it follows the same general look of earlier posters in the franchise, it is different enough to make me stop and take notice. But I don’t think it is quite at the same level as the best SAW posters, and it embraces the idea of torture porn a little too literally for my tastes.
Still a good, memorable poster. It just suffers from the unavoidable comparison.
