If you want to be afraid, be very afraid, on your next vacation, check out the "Saw at Sea" summer cruise from New York City to Canada.

The trip features actors who have appeared in the horror-film franchise, including  Costas Mandylor (Hoffman), Anne Greene (Dina) and Ned Bellamy (Jeff). Dan Yeager, who played Leatherface in “Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D,” also joins the "Saw" crew aboard ship. Even Jigsaw's creepy puppet Billy will be on board for photo ops.

The film series started in 2004 and has seen the creation of six successfully scary movies, box-office wise. Fans who sign up for the cruise can join pool parties and dances with “Saw” celebs, take photographs and get autographs. Those in balcony cabins and suites get extra perks such as private meals and VIP cocktail parties with actors.

The Carnival Glory five-night cruise will sail from New York City to Canada with stops at Saint John, New Brunswick, and Halifax, Nova Scotia, before returning to New York.

Date: The cruise sails Aug. 11-16.

Price: Starts at $779 a person for an inside cabin (less expensive cabins are sold out), double occupancy. It includes the cruise, meals and activities with “Saw” actors. Airfare is extra.
