Man, those posters that say 'From the STUDIO that brought you' always scream desperation. I mean, this one turned out okay. But it's funny in retrospect that they didn't know how to market this and went with, hey horror fans, did'ja like SAW???

Man, at the time I was a little aghast at how much America fell in love with torture porn. But, yeah, it was a hard sell with a new director and not a franchise.
