"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Lionsgate’s “Saw” franchise is one of the more successful horror series in recent memory, spanning seven feature films beginning with the original in 2004. Over the weekend “Abattoir” creator Darren Lynn Bousman, who directed the second through fourth films in the series, posted this stunning (and horrifying) tattoo he discovered a fan had gotten on his back.
The piece features Jigsaw, the masked villain of the series at its center and his true identity, John Kramer (played by Tobin Bell), above. Surrounding them are portraits of his victims locked in his death-inducing traps.
While the “Saw” franchise last graced the silver screen with 2010’s “Saw 3D: The Final Chapter,” the first film’s director, James Wan, said that based on capitalism and the popularity of the franchise it is likely that it would return in one form or another at some point. According to Bloody Disgusting, Lionsgate has backed up Wan’s assurances and all but confirmed an eighth movie is in the works.
