Spiral: From The Book Of Saw Twitter Reactions Are In

Find out what people are saying about the next installment in the Saw franchise.


Spiral: From The Book of Saw--the ninth movie in the Saw franchise--is finally debuting in theaters soon. It releases on May 14 after seeing numerous delays because of the coronavirus pandemic. Now, members of the press who have seen the film prior to its release are discussing their thoughts on the latest Saw movie.

Official reviews will arrive this week, but first responses to Spiral have arrived online. Critics from Bloody Disgusting, The Wrap, and others seem to love the new direction this horror movie takes. Check out some of the quick takes for Spiral below.

The latest installment of the Saw franchise follows Samuel L. Jackson and Chris Rock as two detectives who have teamed up with a rookie--played by Max Minghella--and come across a string of murders that are reminiscent of Jigsaw. While investigating, Rock's character has become the focal point for the killer's next game.

Rock also served as executive producer on the film and had a hand in reviving the franchise--which had its last release in 2017 with Jigsaw, which wasn't that long ago. Rock told Digital Spy he wanted to bring some iconic traps back for the latest movie. "'That reverse bear trap could work again, you know, or the one with the needles," Rock said. "I mean, I was game for that. You can't half jump into this genre. You've got to jump into it, or the fans are going to know. You know what I mean? You can't be above any of it."

Speaking of games, a Saw fan account on Twitter had a bizarre back-and-forth with the Spiral account, where the fan account threatened to delete the upcoming movie. Sure, it may have been a marketing ploy for the upcoming movie, but it sure was hilarious. Back in March, fans got a better look at the upcoming movie with a dark and mysterious trailer.
