    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Looks like a cut-rate "Seven" in the "Saw" universe. (Seriously, will that franchise ever go away?)

    I might have been interested but (a) Chris Rock is a terrible actor and has no business in a leading role and (b) lol oh my god he's one of the producers too.

    That poster better befits a Close Encounters sequel.

    Chris Rock has the problem of a lot of stand-up comedians in that I can't take them at all serious in acting roles.

    Seinfeld, Rock, Chappelle... they all seem too self-aware or something.

    Middle of the pack for a Saw film. I enjoyed the Chris Rock take.

    But the premise is stilly and predictable.

    Even the bad Saw entries have their "appeal" (big scare quote here) on being part of immediately interconnected, morbidly moralist universe. Thus, when you remove most of that close connection and maintain the bad of its worst entries, it just seems like a standard horrible horror film, compounded by the fact that this has the worst, most embarrassingly predictable twist of the entire franchise. Tickled at least to discover that Samuel L. Jackson was in a Saw film though. 3/10
