Two strangers wake up in a dingy, disgusting bathroom. Each are chained to the floor, each harboring their own secrets. Lying between them is the dead body of a man neither of them seem to know. When they each discover audio tapes instructing them to test their very will to live, they begin to realize they are part of a sordid game where a cruel fate awaits.
James Wan and Leigh Whannell created SAW, which redefined horror for an entire generation in 2004. As Lionsgate approaches a return to the franchise, we decided it was a perfect opportunity to revisit the film and the Jigsaw killer as we Remake SAW RIGHT!
Stay tuned to the end of the episode, as we share an excerpt from our interview with the director of several of the Saw sequels, Darren Lynn Bousman, while he was promoting his film, Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival. Darren discusses the SAW sequels, how they came to be, and even his favorite traps.

What IS Remake This Movie RIGHT?
Remake This Movie RIGHT! is a bi-monthly podcast where we take a classic film that is actively being remade by Hollywood studio execs, and craft our own version for a modern retelling. Does the story need updating? Should characters or motives be tweaked? Do we need more muppets? We take all factors into account, concoct our singular film, and then offer a Final Pitch to you in movie trailer form. By the end of each episode, we will Remake This Movie RIGHT!
Our show is broken down into three distinct parts:
The Original: We discuss the original film’s impact on us and history, some quick trivia bits, what worked the best from the film and therefore must remain in our upcoming remake, as well as what didn’t work or what needs to be changed for today’s audiences. Most importantly, should this film even be remade?
The Remake: We put together our movie! What story do we want to tell, how close to the original will it be, who will star, and ultimately who should direct our eventual cinematic masterpiece? Our hosts work together to put together one cohesive movie, but there is one caveat – Each host has one ‘CUT!’ throughout the episode to employ, which could completely derail the entire film.
The Final Pitch: This is where we summarize our remake by utilizing the voice talents of voiceover artist Wayne Henderson and present our finished remake to you in movie trailer parody form!
