Spiral, the ninth installment in the Saw film series, features Samuel L. Jackson and Chris Rock as the prominent cast members. Like the previous Saw installments, the upcoming movie equally has an intense torture-body horror. It follows the story of a bold detective who works in the shadow of a reputable police veteran. He then finds himself at the center of a serial killer’s morbid game while investigating a deepening mystery.
The film, also known as Spiral: From the Book of Saw, was previously slated for release in the United States by Lionsgate on May 15th, 2020, but due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, the release date was pushed back by a year, and its theatrical release is now scheduled for May 21st, 2021.
