SAW 6 (SIX!) Teaser

in: Horror

I mentioned when I was talking about the motion poster that Jigsaw has been more and more present in the posters for the latest SAW movies. This poster reminds me that this is only part of the trend. The marketing in general for the latest films strikes me as having a strong self referential bend. Thus they might be pretty good at getting the “faithful” interested, but do little to convince someone like me, who has left the series long ago, or someone who never saw the films that there is something worth looking into here.

Not sure that is a bad idea. This series has long been established in the public’s mind, and trying to change the people’s already deeply held perceptions of it might very well be a fool’s game. Or at least economically unproductive.

On another note, the general look of this poster seems to follow the much darker look adopted by the series in the final poster for the last film.

    .) I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    I’ve said that least 779791 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
