File this one under "things that make me feel old as dirt." According to Deadline, Lionsgate is planning a 10th Anniversary theater re-release of the very first film in its blockbuster Saw franchise. While I have been pretty vocal about my displeasure with Lionsgate as of late, seeing as they've been putting most of their considerable clout behind YA adaptations and turning their back on the genre that built them (if you take Tyler Perry films out of the equation), this is a brilliant move on their part. Let me walk you through why, torture fiends...

None. But that's just me. Sorry Jigsaw.

This year, Halloween falls on Friday, which is a huge stroke of luck for horror films, and yet very few scary movies are actually taking advantage of it. Only two films with limited buzz are opening on Halloween, while the hotly anticipated ABC's of Death 2 and Horns get only limited releases that weekend. So by re-releasing a film at midnight on October 31 that is beloved by almost every horror fan is actually pretty frigging genius. Couple that with the fact that fans of Leigh Whannell and James Wan are forced to suck it up and wait until next year for Annabelle and The Conjuring 2 and Insidious 3, and a week's worth of Saw in the theater might be just the ticket to hold them over.

So the question is.. Will YOU be seeing 'Saw' on October 31?
