When you’ve released eight movies, managed to maintain a horror franchise after the death of your antagonist and made the transition to 3D, where else is there left to go but to the sea?
That’s exactly where the “Saw” series plans to head later this summer. The Carnival cruise ship Glory is going to be outfitted to celebrate the “Saw” franchise and create the ultimate experience for fans. A trip on the ship includes a chance to hang out with stars from the series including Costas Mandylor, Ned Bellamy, Anne Greene, Mark Rolston and Rebecca Marshall. In addition, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D” star Dan Yeager — the man playing “Leatherface” in the flick — will also be onboard.
Just don’t expect that the trip will be all fun and games. The cruise homepage promises “many special events,” and our guess is that at least one is meant to scare you. Just imagine: a “Saw” movie set on a cruise boat! Many, many terrible things could potentially happen, and we hope the folks behind this trip honor the movies’ legacy by giving their passengers a scare or two.
The ship takes off from New York City on August 11 and heads up to Saint John, NB, Canada on the 13th, Halifax, NS on the 14th and heads back to NYC on the 16th. There’s a dance club, casino and mini golf course on board, so there will be plenty to keep fans occupied in the time that they’re at sea.
Tickets are still available, and range in price from $779 to $1,695 per person. And if you’re wondering why a “Saw” cruise ship would take its passengers to Canada, the website reports that it’s because the last six movies were filmed there. Makes sense to us!
