Jigsaw

★★☆☆ – (2017) – Five people play vicious games against murderous devices while detectives and medics try to piece together where and why. Has clever moments and spots of violence that remind us of the days of Saw lore, but there’s never a moment that doesn’t feel unnecessary. Not a complete waste, but the reasons for bringing the series back only add confusion.

Flatliners (2017)

★½☆☆ – (2017) – Med students who kill themselves to explore death return to life haunted by the sins of their past. The previous version worked well thanks largely to a Gothic backdrop, but this one has no such vision. A too polished and too corny remake that features too many characters not worth investing any time or emotion in.
