 At first glance, Anguish appears to be yet another horror flick about a creepy momma’s boy with a homicidal streak. That’s exactly what I thought the first time I saw it. It unceremoniously opened in theaters back in January ’88 and I caught a Saturday afternoon matinee at the Bryn Mawr, a theater not known for showing low budget B-movies like this. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out why it was playing there. That is, until about the 20-minute mark. Something happens in Anguish that distinguishes it from other horror movies. At this point, I’ll only say that a parallel narrative is introduced. Once it kicks in, the movie transcends the genre to a different plane of existence, one reserved exclusively for truly original films. It certainly took me by surprise. But I should have known something was up with Anguish.

 Once again, we encounter those three magic words “The Final Chapter”. Every time I see this in a title, I recall the Tom & Jerry cartoon in which Tom the cat intones, “DON’T YOU BELIEVE IT!” Seriously, was it over for Jason in his Final Chapter? Hell, no! He was given a New Beginning. Was Freddy really dead after his Final Nightmare? Not a chance! Wes Craven had a New Nightmare. Based solely on empirical evidence, I have no doubt that Saw: The Final Chapter won’t be the last we hear from Jigsaw. Also, the way the stories are structured leaves room for somebody else to don the mask and puppet. Although this was to be the final installment, the studio released it to theaters as Saw 3D to take advantage of the recent resurgence of the gimmick.
