It’s been seven years since the “Saw” franchise issued its final chapter.  To put that into perspective Freddy Krueger was on hiatus for only three years after “The Final Nightmare” and Jason came back from his “Final Chapter” after one year.  So in terms of finality, the “Saw” franchise did have a pretty nice long

Written by Jason McDonald, October 26, 2017
If you’ve seen ‘The Devil’s Rejects” your initial thought about this headline might either be “Yaay!” or “But how can they do a follow-up?” Personally, I’m leaning towards that second question.  But it looks like the long-speculated return to the series is finally going to happen.
