Working in the shadow of his father, an esteemed police veteran (Samuel L. Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock) and his rookie partner (Max Minghella) take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past.

The film is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and written by Josh Stolberg & Pete Goldfinger. A Lionsgate release, Twisted Pictures presents, a Burg/Koules production.

Jackson, puts a fresh spin on a favorite franchise,” he said.

We are proud to support the exhibitors with one of our most eagerly awaited films. We are confident this film will kick off a robust summer moviegoing season.”
The film, which has previously been described as “Saw on steroids,” was developed as a “Saw experience” based on Chris Rock’s love of the franchise.
The film will offer fans worldwide a new amped up level of deviously-treacherous traps, clever clues and the edge-of-the-seat suspense they expect from the one of the world’s most terrifying horror franchises.
