Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday will be on hand at Comic-Con all weekend to judge and pass out World Record achievements.  Comic-Con itself gets one for being the world's largest comic book convention.  What is Saw being awarded for?  Hit the jump to find out.

Nope, it is not "World's Goriest Movie Franchise."  Saw will take home the title of "Most Successful Horror Movie Series," with $732 million total global box office sales.  That doesn't even take into account this fall's seventh (and final) installment.

Keep in mind that these box office successes are somewhat subjective.  How do you account for inflation?  Rising ticket prices?  Home media sales?  How many films make a franchise?  After all, The Exorcist spawned a number of sequels, and while they were crap, the original alone, after adjustments for inflation, has a grossed $879 million (according to BoxofficeMojo.com).

The award will be presented to Saw producers Oren Koules and Mark Burg Friday night at 8:00pm at the Regal UA Horton Plaza
