John Kramer, the man known as JIGSAW, is a sadistic killer who has dedicated his life to forcing his victims through deadly scenarios, to inflict pain upon themselves or others to escape. The Saw franchise has shown us some of the most gruesome and horrific scenes as JIGSAW tortures and terrifies not only his victims but us through the screen.

Below check out  ‘The Best Sadistic Movies to Watch Before Jigsaw’ that will scare you straight to the movies on October 27, 2017 to see the highly anticipated JIGSAW.

The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

The Silence of the Lambs remains one of the all-time best films about a serial killer. Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) sends chills down your spine with his vindictive and twisted mind games that play out in this classic film. A young F.B.I. cadet (Jodie Foster) must confide in an incarcerated and manipulative killer to receive his help on catching another serial killer who skins his victims. There is more than enough twisted and disturbing content in this film to drive anyone mad.

Candyman (1992)

Candyman, a murderous soul with a hook for a hand, is accidentally summoned to reality by a skeptic grad student researching the monster’s myth. The legend has it that if you look into a mirror and chant the name Candyman five times, he will appear behind you and kill you with his hook. Enjoy this throwback horror film; just make sure not to look in the mirror.

Se7en (1995)

Se7en follows two detectives, a rookie (Brad Pitt) and a veteran (Morgan Freeman), who hunt a serial killer who uses the seven deadly sins as his motives. With so many twists and turns, this film is sure to shock and leave an unsettling lasting impression. This serial killer paints some of the most iconic murder scenes of his unlucky victims which lends itself on our list of one of the most sadistic films.

American Psycho (2000)

A wealthy New York investment banking executive, Thomas Clyde Blackburn (Christian Bale), hides his alternative psychopathic ego from his coworkers and friends as he delves deeper into his violent, hedonistic fantasies. This movie is particularly horrifying because he appears to be a credible and successful businessman, but as the story unfolds we see his sadistic ways bleed over, quite literally.

SAW (2004)

Saw is hands down a horror classic! It sets itself apart from the rest with heart-pumping and jaw-clenching scenes that are hard to forget. Saw is about two strangers who wake up in a room with no recollection of how they got there or why, and son discover they are pawns in a deadly game perpetrated by a notorious serial killer. There is no better way to prepare for JIGSAW than by watching the origin story of it all.

Sad Day! Marvel Studios Loses Rights to Spider-Man, After Deal Dissolves…

Fans everywhere rejoiced as Disney bought out Twentieth Century Fox subsequently gaining movie rights for the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider, and a few other Marvel and superhero properties. Just a few years beforehand the Mickey Mouse company reached a deal with Sony to add Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with rave reviews, even making him an Avenger. Those days are seemingly behind us as Sony has decided to no longer allow Marvel Studios to use the Webslinger in anymore of its films as the two companies have failed to come to a licensing agreement.

Fans everywhere rejoiced as Disney bought out Twentieth Century Fox subsequently gaining movie rights for the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Ghost Rider, and a few other Marvel and superhero properties. Just a few years beforehand the Mickey Mouse company reached a deal with Sony to add Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with rave reviews, even making him an Avenger. Those days are seemingly behind us as Sony has decided to no longer allow Marvel Studios to use the Webslinger in anymore of its films as the two companies have failed to come to a licensing agreement.

Apparently Disney was only making five percent of the take from Spider-Man films released under Marvel Studios, and were now seeking to make it a 50/50 split in revenue. Sony has trashed the deal.

Kevin Feige, the president of Disney-owned Marvel Studios, will no longer produce the “Spider-Man” movies released by rival studio Sony Pictures after the two companies failed to come to a new agreement, according to three people familiar with the matter who were not authorized to comment.

Disney, which had a major hand in producing megahits “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and its recent sequel “Far From Home,” wanted to take a 50% co-financing stake in future “Spider-Man” films, these people said. But Sony, which is riding high on the success of the Spider-Man movies, was unwilling to give up such a large portion of its most valuable franchise.

Another major factor in negotiations was the growing demands on Feige’s time, said people with knowledge of the situation.

Disney wants the highly successful producer to focus on the Marvel characters it owns, which recently expanded to include the “X-Men” characters. Disney acquired the “X-Men” rights as part of its purchase of 20th Century Fox. Feige also has been tasked with shepherding a significant lineup of original Marvel Studios shows for the company’s all-important streaming service Disney+, which is expected to launch Nov. 12 in a high-stakes gamble to take on Netflix.

Also on Feige’s plate: building the next phase of Marvel movies, including the long-anticipated “Black Widow” feature and a fourth “Thor” film. It’s unclear how, exactly, Spider-Man would have fit into the next round of Marvel Studios movies if the studios had been able to reach a deal.

This is really upsetting to fans everywhere. We wish Sony could have budged a little on this agreement, especially since its previous Spider-Man films have been so lackluster in comparison to the recent ones under Marvel’s prodction. Get back to the drawing board Marvel and Sony we need Spider-Man in the MCU!

Marvel Phase 4  has been announced at San Diego Comic Con and we are ecstatic! The next phase of the latest set of Marvel films introduces us to five new series on Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+, a new Blade, as Mahershalah Ali has been cast in the role of the half-vampire superhero, sequels to Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Doctor Stranger, Guardians of The Galaxy, and Thor, movies based on The Eternals, Black Widow, Shang-Chi, and the Fantastic Four, and mutants finally joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

The blerd in us is screaming at the above mentioned news as even more superheroes are coming to the screen. The Disney+ shows will feature shows based on Hawkeye, Captain America & Falcon, Loki, The Scarlet Witch & Vision (WandaVision), and What If? The latter will be animated and is based off the line of Marvel Comics of the same name showing what would happen if certain heroes or villains made other decisions in events, instead of what we originally saw play out.

The news of Mahershalah’s casting as Blade is genius. He has the look, build, and acting chops to be the vampire bad ass we grew to know and love in the late nineties and early 2000s. His inclusion with Doctor Strange shows Marvel is definitely including the supernatural and more magic in their roster. This is not Mahershalah’s first bout in the MCU, however, as he portrayed the crime lord, Cottonmouth in Netflix’s Luke Cage during its first season. In other casting news for Marvel, Natalie Portman has been cast as the female Thor! As you may recall, a couple of years ago in the comics Thor became unworthy to wield Mjolnir and Jane Foster (Natalie’s character, and Thor’s original love interest) was worthy and became the new Thor! This should all play out in Thor: Love & Thunder! Perhaps there will be a love triangle between he, Valkyrie, and Jane–if the former is not cast completely as a lesbian, but bisexual instead.

We are not surprised to hear that Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Doctor Stranger, Guardians of The Galaxy, and Thor are getting sequels. Each of these characters are now headliners in the MCU, especially with the retirement of Captain America (Steve Rogers) and the demise of Iron Man and Black Widow in Avengers: Endgame. Black Widow’s standalone film will be a prequel and The Eternals is a new film altogether that may explain Thanos’ origins and introduce us to characters like Mentor (Thanos’ father), Eros (Thanos’ brother), and Sersi. The latter two are know Avengers in the comics.

x-men and fantastic four

Perhaps the most anticipated news of the new phase is the mention of the Fantastic Four being introduced, along with the introduction of mutants. Retconning the Fantastic Four’s origins and adding them to the MCU should be easy. The mutants, however, are a different thing. Even if mutants are just now being discovered, how do we explain older mutants like Wolverine, Magneto, and Professor X sitting out the cataclysms the Avengers have protected the world from? All in all, we are so excited about the future of the MCU! What do you guys think? Sound off in the comments section below.

Check out a few of the tweets below:

As much hate as these racist comments and trolls gave, these was even more love from Black Twitter and many media outlets praising Disney for their diversity casting. Halle will star alongside Melissa McCarthy who has been tapped to play the sea witch, Ursula; and Jacob Tremblay and Awkwafina to play Flounder and Scuttle, respectively. What do you guys think of Disney’s casting decision for The Little Mermaid. Are you down for our next trip “Under The Sea?”
