This year’s Snobbies had a fantastic turnout! We had almost 4,000 voters. Several categories were won by only a few votes (Bratz won over Norbit for Worst Movie with only five votes).
No one matched all 16 categories to win the grand prize, but we had a few other winners for the prizes of an iPod Touch, 3 DVDs of your choice, and 1 DVD. To see how many you matched enter your email address on this page and it will show you your votes and the winners.
Without any further ado, here are the winners of the 2008 Snobbies (don’t forget that some categories have spoilers):
Bloody Disgusting confirmed the cast so far for Saw V as Tobin Bell, Scott Patterson, Costas Mandylor, Mark Rolston, Betsy Russell, and Samantha Lemole. IMDb only has Bell, Patterson, and Mandylor listed, but one would assume at least Betsy Russell would be around for the fifth flick in the series.
Mark Rolston and Samantha Lemole are new to the series, but the rest are all returning characters. The movie is still set for release the weekend before Halloween this year, making this the fifth year in a row that we’ll be able to spend Halloween watching Jigsaw impart his special brand of life-appreciation.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big fan of the Saw series of horror flicks, so news on Saw V eight and a half months before the movie hits theaters makes me very happy.
Bloody Disgusting spoke with director David Hackl who has previously served as production designer on the Saw sequels. Hackl has a few tidbits to share about the set and the traps, but I think the most interesting part is when he talks about the “reference disc” given to him by the trap designer: “The disc was full of real life ‘inspiration’ from industrial accidents, plane crashes and road disasters.”
Sounds like the traps are going to be even more disgusting and violent than we’ve seen in the past three sequels.
