SAW V, the latest in the on-going SAW franchise will hit DVD on January 20th, 2009 (same date as REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA) and will be available in several different editions – An Unrated (Widescreen) Director’s Cut, a rated Fullscreen edition, a limited Unrated Collector’s Edition and Blu-Ray. The rated Fullscreen only has the trailer (who’d want that edition?), while the other ones boast the following special features:
– Audio commentary by director David Hackl and 1st assistant director Steve Webb
– Audio commentary by producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules and executive producers Peter Block and Jason Constantine
– The Pendulum Trap featurette
– The Cube Trap featurette
– The Coffin Trap featurette
– The Fatal Five featurette
– Slicing the Cube: Editing the Cube Trap featurette
– Theatrical trailer
The Blu-Ray will include a bonus disc with a digital copy of SAW V. But the coolest looking edition has to be the Unrated Collector’s Edition (see pic below!)
The foreign version of SAW IV had the "saw" packaging. Check it out in this clip below!
SAW V was directed by David Hackl & written by screenwriting duo Marcus Dunstan & Patrick Melton and stars Tobin Bell, Julie Benz, Costas Mandylor, Scott Patterson, Mark Rolston, Samantha Lemole, Meagan Good, Betsy Russell, Carlo Rota, Greg Bryk and Laura Gordon.
