Just a few days ago I was commenting that I liked that the last SAW poster didn’t try to somehow squeeze a 4 into the image. And now this new poster is released. I swear I think they did it just to spite me.
All kidding aside, it turns out that they actually managed to make the four work well. I was fearing that it would be too close to something like this, but it wasn’t. I also have to say that, for some reason that I can’t explain, the medical instruments with bits of flesh stuck to them are creeping me out way more than the body parts generally do. So that is also nice.
But in the end the problems with this are much the same as the problems with the last one. The poster is great by itself, but at this point it feels like something we have seen before.
