Saw 3D’s Halloween opener was a bit of a surprise at the box office this weekend, earning over $24 million. But will this spell the end of the franchise? Get the details here, and see related photos and video below.

Horror fans have enjoyed the ride that the Saw movies have provided, taking them to the farthest extremes of gore. Even as a child of the 80s who grew up watching what have become the classics, I occasionally wince during the torture scenes. But isn’t there only a limited number of ways to painfully kill someone?

That may be the case, as the seventh installment hit theatres Friday. It seems jumping on the 3D craze was a bit of a desperate act following the dismal numbers the sixth film racked up. Even those behind the films say this is the final chapter.

It looks like it worked, as Saw 3D landed in the top ten at the box office this weekend. Get more on the story over at Hollywood Insider.
