If you were ever worried that you'd never see another Saw film, rest easy horror fans: the franchise continues! The first trailer for Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson's reboot titled Spiral dropped on Feb. 5, and it's pretty dark.

The ninth film in the gory series follows Detective Ezekiel "Zeke" Banks (Rock) and his rookie partner William Schenk (The Handmaid's Tale actor Max Minghella) as they investigate a grisly murderer who is specifically targeting police officers. Set in the same world as the original movies and directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (who directed Saw II, Saw III, and Saw IV), the reboot's trailer highlights an odd spiral design that decorates every crime scene and is reminiscent of the original Jigsaw killer's mark. As Zeke and William delve deeper into the mystery, working in the shadow of Jackson's police veteran character, they fall prey to the sick machinations similar to the previous films. In the final moments of the trailer, Zeke is seen handcuffed to a pipe, iconic hacksaw in hand as he seems to realize what it's going to take to get out alive.

Lionsgate also released a stunning movie poster to go along with the dark trailer. Watch the teaser above, and gird your loins to check out the movie when Spiral arrives in theaters on May 15.
