It all started with that blasted VH-1 reality show SCREAM QUEENS . If ya missed it, it was basically a handful of attractive young gals participating in various horror flick-related challenges in order to land a role in the upcoming SAW VI. I dug around on YouTube and found The Soup's take on a couple of clips from the show: [UPDATE: Sorry folks; looks like the vid had been removed.]
Anyway...I was really impressed with out-of-nowhere winner Tanedra Howard and was curious as to how she might do in the coveted role. I had only ever watched the original SAW and really didn't like it...but couldn't really remember much about it. So I loaded the first two in the series into the NetFlix queue (on Blu-Ray disc, of course) and then sat down with the flicks shortly after they showed up in the mailbox. I watched SAW and SAW II back to back...and was really impressed. I can't for the life of me figure out why I disliked the original so much on the first viewing. Anyway, I've now ordered the entire series on Blu-Ray and am looking forward to seeing Miss Tanedra in SAW VI later this year. I'm actually hoping she does really well and is successful in the industry as she seems really sincere and actually exhibits a bit of raw talent. Go Tanedra!
