Spiral: From the Book of Saw is heading our way in May, and here are two clips to whet our appetite for the latest thriller in the series.

Star of the show Chris Rock is behind the story, which was beaten into shape for screen by Jigsaw scribes Josh Stolberg and Peter Goldfinger. Meanwhile, Darren Lynn Bousman, who helmed Saws II, III and IV, sat in the director’s chair for this one.

The synopsis is simple: “Working in the shadow of his father, an esteemed police veteran (Samuel L. Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock) and his rookie partner (Max Minghella) take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past. Unwittingly entrapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the centre of the killer’s morbid game.”

Spiral: From the Book of Saw is all tooled up and ready to hit Australian cinemas on May 13.
