The new film Spiral comes with the subtitle “From the Book of Saw” but don’t let that turn you away as comedian Chris Rock has a few tricks up his sleeve as the star and executive producer. He stars as Zeke Banks, a worn-down undercover cop who feels compelled to take on a new case after his friend and fellow officer is mutilated. The killer’s calling card is a red spiral making Zeke and his new rookie partner, played by Max Minghella, wonder if there is a Jigsaw copycat on the loose. The body count escalates as it becomes all too clear that corrupt metro police become the target of this killer. The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson’s as Zeke’s father who’s a retired cop and Marisol Nichols as their captain.
