Los Angeles, CA, October, 18, 2017 – VRX Networks today announced a new partnership with global content leader and Hollywood studio Lionsgate to create a virtual reality escape experience for the upcoming film JIGSAW, the eighth installment of the blockbuster SAW films – one of the highest-grossing horror franchises of all time.

The ‘JIGSAW VR eXperience’ will allow fans to interact with the world created by the film in an entirely new way,” said Lionsgate Senior Vice President, Global Live and Location Based Entertainment Jenefer Brown.
VRX Networks will add this title to their VR eXperience network of cinemas and malls across the U.S and U.K. Future expansion will take place in the U.S, U.K, South America and Australia with further expansion planned for Asia, Europe and Middle East in 2018.
