A sadistic mastermind unleashes a twisted form of justice in SPIRAL, the terrifying new chapter from the book of SAW.
Working in the shadow of an esteemed police veteran Marcus Banks (Samuel L. Jackson), brash Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock) and his rookie partner (Max Minghella) take charge of a grisly investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past.
Unwittingly entrapped in a deepening mystery, Zeke finds himself at the center of the killer’s morbid game.

Originally set for an October 23, 2020 release, Spiral was actually brought forward by Lionsgate to May 15, 2020 – but then the current global situation hit and it had to be delayed.
The movie will now be released in US and UK cinemas on May 14, 2021, taking the release date that was previously occupied by John Wick: Chapter 4 (which has now moved back to 2022).
