Like a stumpy limb requiring quick cauterization via steam pipe (our first cringe), the Saw series is begging for closure. This seventh installment is reportedly the last one—do we actually trust horror producers now? If so, the series ends with an underwhelming thud. Tobin Bell’s gravelly moralist (who had an enjoyable flourish in Saw VI) is now torturing a “Jigsaw survivor” who faked his encounter and spun the lie into a best-seller and support group. That does sound promising, right? Alas, the humor never materializes (even when a yappy publicist gets it) and the death traps lack the wit of earlier entries.
