Saw: The Musical, as sung by infoMania personalities Brett Erlich and Ellen Fox, details every diabolical Saw kill in one ninety second ditty. FEARnet contacted the clip's writer/producer Brett Erlich about how this musical ode to Saw came about. Erlich says it initially took shape when they realized how "insanely intricate" the plot to Saw 3D was and thusly, that the whole franchise needed to be mocked…in song.
