Aka: Saw 2
When detective Eric Matthews is called to a crime scene of a victim of Jigsaw, he finds a lead to the place where he is hidden. Once there, he realizes that Jigsaw trapped his son Daniel Matthews with three women and four men in a shelter, and they are inhaling a lethal nerve gas. If they do not use an antidote within two hours, they will die. Eric follows with increasing desperation the death of each member of the group in monitors, while trying to convince Jigsaw to release his son.
The mood of Saw II is tense, scary, and rough. The plot centers around captivity, isolation, and mind games. It is a horror, independent, and thriller movie. Stylistically, Saw II involves twists and turns and is gory. In approach, it is serious and realistic. It takes place, at least partly, indoors. Saw II happens in contemporary times. It is especially suggested for a boys' night and teens. Note that it includes strong violent content, drugs/alcohol, and profanity.
Jigsaw, the diabolical criminal who captured the imagination of horror fans in the 2004 hit Saw, returns in this equally bloody sequel. Eric Matthews (Donnie Wahlberg) is a police detective who, after discovering the aftermath of a particularly gruesome murder, is convinced that Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) is up to his ugly tricks again. Matthews' hunch turns out to be correct, but the master criminal proves to be disconcertingly easy to capture. As it happens, Jigsaw is eager to be put behind bars in order to throw the authorities off his trail as he once again punishes people who in his eyes have transgressed the bound...
aries of acceptable moral behavior. But instead of trapping two people in a filthy dungeon where they must engage in a terrible contest in order to win their freedom, eight people have been locked away by Jigsaw, and they must torture their bodies and minds to achieve the terrible justice Jigsaw seeks. Saw II was written by Leigh Whannell, who also scripted the first film.
Detective Eric Matthews (Donnie Wahlberg) onderzoekt een bloederige moord en het gevoel bekruipt hem dat Jigsaw, de moordenaar die een spoor van lichamen en lichaamsdelen achterliet, weer actief is. Hij krijgt snel gelijk. Deze keer heeft Jigsaw niet twee mensen opgesloten, maar maar liefst acht personen die elkaar niet kennen en niet weten wat hun onderlinge connectie is. Ze zullen alleen kunnen overleven wanneer ze hun verstand gebruiken. Dat geldt ook voor Matthews, voor wie de tijd steeds meer begint te dringen.

Darren Lynn Bousman ( Saw II , Saw III , Saw IV ) is set to direct the independent sci-fi action movie Apex. The project, scripted by James E. Cavanaugh, is described as Predator meets Call of Duty. A special ops unit is sent to retrieve a Wmd from North Korea and ends up transported to another world where they must fight a dangerous alien race. It's an interesting premise---sounds like it could make a nice double feature with Edge of Tomorrow . I am curious to see what Bousman and 2511 Productions can do with an indie budget to create an alien world. Hit the jump for quotes from Bousman on his vision for Apex. Courtesy of Heat Vision:
"Bousman sees Apex as 'a love letter to the sci-fi films I grew up watching with my dad, such as Alien, Predator, Enemy Mine , Tremors. But I also want it to have the more modern feel
