Get yourself into the mood for Halloween by checking out one of this fall’s horror films. Vampires, the undead, serial killers and deadly stalkers are just some of the villains who are likely to claim victims before the credits roll.
Starring: Tobin Bell, Scott Patterson, Betsy Russell, Costas Mandylor, Lyriq Bent, Athena Karkanis, Justin LouisDirector: Darren Lynn BousmanStory: In this installment, Jigsaw (Bell) and Amanda (Shawnee Smith) are dead and two FBI profilers (Patterson, Karkanis) assist Detective Hoffman (Mandylor) in finding Detective Kerry’s murderer. But when SWAT Commander Rigg (Bent) gets abducted, he’s thrust into Jigsaw’s final game. Buzz: At this year’s Comic-Con, after showing a sneak peek at the movie, the filmmakers revealed the MPAA had given “Saw IV” and NC-17 rating. Chances are they’ll do some edits to get that down to an R. When “Hostel 3” tanked at the box office this year, critics were quick to jump on the “torture porn is dead” bandwagon (credit wishful thinking on their part). This movie will be the real test of that theory.Web site: NARelease date: Oct. 26
