Saw 6??? When Is Enough…..5 Sequels Too Many! (A Mad As Hell Op-Ed Piece)
So little known fact about me….I love horror movies. I do I’m a big fan of the genre. What isn’t a little known fact about me….I have a low tolerance for stupid crap. Let alone stupid crap that costs ten bucks to see. So imagine my surprise when I saw a poster for Saw 6. I understand that people still go to see these things, but who is making them?
An open letter to the people who won’t pull the plug on Saw.
Dear whoever you are,
I understand times are tough. I understand that a paycheck is a paycheck. That being said, please stop. Come up with something new. The original Jigsaw dies and it keeps going??? How many more ways can you get a guy to saw open his friend to get a key? Who are your friends? Don’t you ever get embarrassed? When your friends go “hey what are you working on?” You say Saw 6? The say “oh another one?” They are as bored as we are. GET A NEW IDEA!!!!!!!

There! I’m sorry that got uncomfortable, but someone had to say it. It’s just in a world of possibilities there has to be more. It is up to the viewer to demand the material to be smart, entertaining, and original. If we don’t they’ll keep sending us the same drivel packed in a different box. I’m not saying NO to sequels, just know when enough is enough. What will be the next big idea?? I don’t know. There will be no room that month, because Saw 12 will be in its spot at the multiplex.
