‘Saw’ Unrated Cutting onto 4K in May

The original 2004 Saw will be released on 4K Ultra HD for the first time in May, fittingly just three days before the new Spiral: From the Book of Saw arrives.

Spawning one of the most successful horror franchises in history, James Wan’s (The Conjuring, Insidious, Aquaman) directorial debut returns to terrify audiences once again when Saw arrives on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack (plus Blu-ray and Digital).

Experience four times the resolution of full HD with the 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, bringing entertainment to life through ultra-vivid picture quality. When compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver spectacular colors never before seen on a screen, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker. Available for the very first time in this absolutely stunning format, the Saw 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack will include audio commentaries, featurettes, and more, and will be available for the suggested retail price of $22.99.

The official synopsis: With its story of a morally obsessed serial killer who forces his victims to play horrific games of torture and survival, Saw shocked audiences, redefined the horror genre, and spawned one of the most successful franchises of all time. Now, experience the unhinged depravity of the Jigsaw Killer in an eye-popping 4K transfer that will chill your blood and disturb your dreams.
