Interview: Darren Lynn Bousman, Max Minghella And Marisol Nichols Talk Spiral: From The Book Of Saw

With cinemas now open again across the UK, the Saw franchise is unleashing it’s latest film on audiences, but it isn’t the movie you may expect it to be.

Executive produced by comedian Chris Rock, Spiral: From The Book Of Saw aims to take the series in a new direction, injecting it with humour and spinning it as more of a suspense thriller rather than a horror. Although it still has plenty of scares!

Rock himself stars as a detective tasked with tracking down a criminal mastermind who has unleashed a twisted form of justice, one which relates to the city’s gruesome past.
