Trivia

Hank Carlson was set to build the suit that Brian Ellis wears as Jigsaw. But director Don Adams did not like the head that Hank presented as he felt a smile did not fit the face. Hank did another head, but since it did not fit the actor's head they quickly made another new one without consulting Hank. See more »

Take it for what it is.... Cheesy, campy fun...
26 November 2007 | by (Istanbul) – See all my reviews

Too many low budget horror films are mistakenly expected to be intellectual masterpieces of modern cinema. Sadly, many viewers are confused by this, but the truth is they are (low budget) and in many cases close to (no budgets). The directing team of Adams & Picardi are well known to work with next to nothing, and I think "Jigsaw" is what it's supposed to be: a low budget, fun horror flick. The story is goofy to begin with, a group of students embark on an art project of piecing together a mannequin. Being the troubled souls that they are, they use power tools and weapons as limbs, and would you believe it... It comes to life and terrorizes them. Nothing too thought-provoking or out of the ordinary here, it's a cheesy, fun film with some decent and dumb moments. The acting is solid, and I found it to be a fun little evening of mindless horror. If you take these films for what they are, you'll find them much more enjoyable...
