      Just in case the horrors of the global pandemic haven't been enough for ya, here comes the latest entry in the gruesome Saw franchise, Spiral: The Book of Saw.

      The first Saw flick since 2017's Jigsaw, it stars Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson, and opens this Friday (May 14). Here's the official blurb:

      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.

      Yesterday Lionsgate released a trailer featuring the film's opening scene, and it's pretty disturbing, unless you're totally into tongue torture. Watch it if you dare:
