REVIEW: Jigsaw

Jigsaw, the 8th film in the Saw franchise and the first in 7 years, has returned to “take back Halloween.” I originally thought this translated into “has returned to take back your wallet,” as the pessimist in me saw this film as a cash grab (I’m looking at you Saw: The Final Chapter).
