My future disappointment has been all but confirmed with the the apparent retitling of the film to Saw 3D: The Traps Come Alive. Really? You're interrupting the way the films had been titled for the past six years in favor of sheer idiocy? Brilliant move. I can maybe, just maybe, overlook the 3D if the story is decent, but this title is just...stupid. It's a gimmick to capitalize on this fading and near-universally reviled technology, but all it does it make the title unwieldy and sound like it belongs to a Halloween Horror Nights attraction.
At first I, like everyone else online (especially Twitter), thought it was a freakin' joke, but it has since been confirmed via a Comic Con press release. I wonder what director Kevin Greutert thinks of this. If you'll recall, he was initially attached to the Paranormal Activity sequel, but was compelled by Lionsgate to helm the seventh film in the series. The best part? Both films will be going toe-to-toe on October 22nd in what is shaping up to be one Hell of a month for horror.
Guess we'll just have to wait and see.
