It is a 2021 American horror film directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and written by Josh Stolberg and Peter Goldfinger. Spiral is also known as Spiral: From the Book of Saw. They have just released their ninth installment in the Saw series of films. Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, and Samuel L. Jackson star in the police procedural about catching a Jigsaw clone. Rock and series veteran Kevin Greutert, in addition to series creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell, serve as executive producers.
After the release of Jigsaw in 2017, Chris Rock expressed a desire to venture into the horror genre with a new Saw film. However, the Spierig Brothers, who had hoped to return to helm another picture, opted against it. After the official announcement of the project in May 2019, the script by Stolberg and Goldfinger had been polished by Rock. July and August were the months of filming in Toronto for the rest of the actors.
When the COVID-19 epidemic delayed the release of Spiral, it was released theatrically in the United States on May 14, 2021, by Lionsgate. Critics appreciated the film’s fresh approach but disagreed on whether it had succeeded in reinvigorating the franchise.
Spiral Saw: Plot
Off-duty Detective Marv Bozwick chases a burglar into a sewer drainage pipe during a Fourth of July parade. In the wake of an attack from behind by a masked assailant, Bozwick wakes up hanging by his tongue in a subway tunnel and is offered the option of tearing out his tongue and escaping death, or remaining suspended until the next train arrives, which will kill him. Incapable of getting away in time, Bozwick is killed when his body is collided with by the train. Police Captain Angie Garza sends Zeke Banks a new partner, idealistic rookie William Schenk, to work with him the following day. The investigation by Banks and Schenk into the death of Bozwick reveals a striking resemblance to the slaying of the Jigsaw Killer, who is now deceased.
Fitch, a homicide investigator who rejected a backup call from Banks several years before, is abducted and placed in a trap where he must rip his fingers off to prevent electrocution in a filling water basin; he also fails to escape and dies. Due to Banks’ past association with Fitch, several officers believe he may be the perpetrator of the crime. Once at the station, a box is sent with a puppet of a pig and a portion of Schenk’s tattooed skin. In the box, there is a small vial that leads the police to a butcher shop, where Banks and his father, retired police chief Marcus Banks, used to go.
When the squad arrives, they find a tape recorder and a skinned corpse they recognize as Schenk. As a result of his determination to find the assassin on his own, Marcus makes his way to a warehouse and is kidnapped. In the precinct’s cold storage, Garza is kidnapped and forced to sever her spinal cord on a blade in order to prevent hot wax from dripping from a pipe onto her face. When she fails, she dies from her injuries resulting from the scalding wax. Banks discovers her dead at the scene.
While pursuing a lead, Banks is captured and wakes up in a warehouse chained to a pipe with a hacksaw nearby. After considering cutting off his arm with a hacksaw, he manages to escape with the help of a bobby pin. Peter Dunleavy, his former partner who was fired and jailed when Banks disclosed a murder he committed, is now locked up in a cell next door. Glass-crushing machinery, adapted to throw shrapnel at him, stands in his way. He must avoid it. A voice recording informs Banks that he has the option of either rescuing him or allowing him to starve to death.
Despite his best efforts, Banks is unable to free Dunleavy in time. Once they’ve moved to a different room, Bank finds Schenk, who has been proven to be a copycat all along, having killed himself with the skin of the thief who initially enticed Bozwick into the tunnels. It was Charlie Emmerson, who was shot and killed by Dunleavy because he had promised to testify against a crooked cop, that his son’s last name is indeed Emmerson, the son of Charlie Emmerson. It’s also been revealed that Marcus protected corrupt officers (including Garza) to better “sweep” the streets of crime under Article 8 during his term as chief.
William is confident in Banks’ ability to be an ally, so he gives him one last test, exposing Marcus suspended in the air and steadily losing blood. Willie dialed 911 and told the operator that the shooter was on the loose, so the dispatcher dispatched a SWAT unit to his location. When he provides Banks a handgun, he gives him the option of shooting a target to rescue Marcus but murdering William in the process, or letting his father bleed to death while killing William. As Marcus is being restrained by William, Banks fires the target, loosening the straps, and lowers him to the ground. He then begins to fight William. When the SWAT team comes, they accidentally set off a tripwire, which causes Marcus’ handcuffs to tug him back up. SWAT mistakenly shoots Marcus because his arm is covered in a gun that they mistakenly believe belongs to the shooter. As William makes off, Banks lets out a desperate scream.
