Writer Patrick Melton Talks Saw VII

What can you expect from the 3D sequel?

Dread Central‘s Sean Decker just had a lengthy chat with Saw VII co-writer Patrick Melton and was able to squeeze out a few details on the approach for the latest chapter in the franchise, which just happens to be in 3D.

“In this one we have bigger traps and more traps and more characters,” explains Melton. “Especially characters from the past (films) – than we’ve had in probably any other Saw movie. It’s definitely the most expensive and ambitious Saw movie that we’ve done. Some of it is in response to last year’s Saw VI, which, while being the most critically acclaimed Saw film in a while, didn’t do particularly as well (at the box office) as everyone would have hoped, so we are going pretty far with this one in terms of the scale and intensity of the traps and the amount of twists, especially into the third act, which is just a plethora of twists and reveals.”

“If we end it with this one,” he continues, “then the entire franchise and story will be wrapped up in a nice pretty package.”
