Syfy Sharpens The Horror With ‘Saw’ Marathon

There will be nothing but “Saw and Disorder” all day long this weekend on Syfy.

The network will air a Saw marathon this Sunday, April 26, starting at 8:30 a.m. (ET), as reported by NBC Universal.

The horrifying “Saw and Disorder” marathon will kick off with Saw II and continue right through the franchise until it boasts the network debut of Jigsaw at 9 p.m. (ET).

Fans of the long-running series will be able to overdose on seven of the films, missing only the original 2004 Saw movie. No reason was given for excluding this first film from the marathon, but there promises to be plenty of mayhem for everyone on Sunday.

It also was noted that the next movie in the series, Spiral: From The Book Of Saw, has been delayed indefinitely due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This latest entry–starring the unlikely duo of Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson and directed by Darren Lynn Bousman–was slated for a May 15 release, but was put on hold by Lionsgate. No new release date has been announced.

The complete Saw marathon schedule on Sunday is as follows: Saw II (8:30-11:30 a.m.); Saw III (10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.); Saw IV (1-3 p.m.); Saw V (3-5 p.m.); Saw VI (5-7 p.m.); Saw 3D (7-9 p.m.; and Jigsaw (9-11 p.m.).

It was reported that, to date, all the Saw movies together have grossed more than $980 million, marking the franchise as one of the most successful in horror history.

Jigsaw, released in 2017, resurrected the franchise after a seven-year hiatus. This film, directed by Michael and Peter Spierig, continued the storyline, following the trail of several bloody murders that remind police of the work of John Kramer, the feared Jigsaw Killer.

The authorities start a chase after a man was has been dead for 10 years and find themselves embroiled in a very dangerous game. Tobin Bell reprised his role as John Kramer in this last installment in the series.

Stay tuned to Horror News Network for the release date and any additional information on Spiral: From The Book Of Saw. And have plenty of popcorn on hand Sunday for the marathon!
