SWEET! I THINK THAT CHESTER BENNINGTON GETS KILLED IN THE NEW SAW MOVIE!

240

I detest the Saw franchise. Not because of the deplorable violence; on the contrary, I don’t know what cinema is for if not showing people getting slaughtered in horrific and nightmarish ways. Just because I think they’re retarded, and not fun. When I was a young ‘un, slasher films were things like the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street movies — sure, they were idiotic and not at all scary, but the best ones (Friday the 13th Part 6: Jason Lives, A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 3: The Dream Warriors, etc.) had a real sense of wit about them that made for an awesome communal experience at the movies. The Saw series is humorless and bad, which is not a winning combination. (Piranha 3D reminds me much more of the splatter flicks of yore.)

But for whatever reason I just watched this new trailer for the upcoming Saw 3D — which is allegedly going to be the last in the franchise, at least until next year’s inevitable “reboot” — and I couldn’t help but notice a gentlemen who looks an awful lot like Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, a.k.a. “The Motherfucking Anti-Christ,” stuck in one of Jigsaw’s traps. So I looked on IMDB, and, sho’ ’nuff, Bennington is in the movie. Of course, I have no way of knowing if he survives the trap or not, but I’m hopeful he suffers some kind of gory end that I can watch on a loop and pretend is real while laughing my ass off.

Bennington also had cameos in the Crank movies, which I enjoyed quite a bit. So I guess not everything he touches turns to shit.
