Saw, global success

Saw is a splatter-themed horror film series created by James Wan and Leigh Whannell in 2004. The first film was a resounding success: Against $ 1 million spent on making the film, it debuted earning $ 18 million on its opening weekend alone, and a total of $ 103 million worldwide. The saga also launched the director’s careers James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell, and gave Hollywood a new iconic cinematic monster, the creepy puppet on the tricycle, Billy. Since the first villain, John Kramer, has died in Saw III, the role then passed to his other apprentices, demonstrating how the power of this ruthless killer is in fact independent of his identity. Subsequent episodes of Saw enriched with blood and splatter scenes, adding elaborate traps and increasingly convoluted mechanisms. In general the takings of the films of the saga they have always been quite high, totaling $ 976 million. That’s why it is by no means certain that the tenth, highly anticipated chapter of the franchise is also the last.
