Chris Rock is on hunt for Jigsaw in Spiral trailer

(Chris Rock)

The full trailer for upcoming reboot/sequel Spiral: From The Book of Saw is now online, and it’s clear from the first scene that even though comedian Chris Rock is the star, this is no spoof. Don’t expect Scary Movie.

Just scares.

A criminal mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in Spiral, the terrifying new chapter from the book of Saw. 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 center of the killer’s morbid game. A Spiral if you will. Watch the trailer below:

And there’s a poster:
