Trivia

Leigh Whannell performed his own stunt underwater during the opening scene in the bathtub. He stayed underwater by having a crew member stand on his chest. See more »

Goofs

When Adam asks Dr. Gordon if he's going to have any more kids, there is a small, white spot on the right side of the screen visible for less than a second. This is likely a single-frame anti-piracy watermark or a defect on the film. They appear several times in the movie, especially in the final reels. See more »

Well made horror/thriller, two thumbs up
10 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

When two men, wake up and find themselves chained to a bathroom pipe, with a dead body lying in between them, they soon realize that they are prisoners, in the secure lair of a serial killer, nicknamed 'Jigsaw'.

This film was, in my opinion, exciting, thrilling, and an overall entertaining film to watch. It delivered the necessary chills, to keep its audiences fully awake, and engaged. This was an enormous achievement for Aussie newcomers – James Wan, and Leigh Wannell. The two have created a well-deserved horror/thriller, without the necessary clichés.The film is not too scary that it becomes unwatchable, so the full potential of its enormity will not be missed. definitely two thumbs uo for me.
