The Saw films get pulses racing — and blood pumping.

For the sixth straight year, a Halloween blood drive is coinciding with the release of the latest film from the franchise. Saw VI comes out Friday.

Since the first Saw blood drive in 2004, fans have donated enough blood to save more than 350,000 lives, according to the movie's website.

Lionsgate, the production company behind the horror films, and the American Red Cross are partners in the drive. Lionsgate is the parent company of TVGuide.com.
