I just watched the guy who played the madman in the “Saw” movies trap and torture a middle-aged man and his twenty-something son in his dungeon-like lair. His nefarious plan was to drain their blood and use it to counter a rare terminal disease he was fighting; one that had already left him hideously ravaged. The room looked like someone had been slaughtered in it. Meanwhile, in another area of the building, the twenty-something son was being mercilessly subjected to some sort of brainwashing. No, I wasn’t streaming a new torture-porn flick on Netflix or Amazon. Instead, I was watching this tale of terror play out on NBC’s lone daytime drama, “Days of Our Lives.”
