Trivia

The "Reverse Bear Trap" used in this short film was made by an engineer friend of Leigh Whannell and James Wan. The device was actually rusty and had to be placed in Leigh's mouth. Also, it was completely workable and dangerous. However, in the feature length film, Saw (2004), the device was safe and coated with fake rust. See more »

Good For A Short
11 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a feature on the second disc on the Uncut edition of "SAW". James Wan and Leigh Whannell wanted to have something to show the American Studios so they quickly made this. This is basically just the "Reverse Bear Trap" except Leigh Whannell is playing the roll of Amanda. I believe this is pretty good for a nine minute short which later lead to the release of the actual movie "SAW". The interrogation scene in this short I believe is much better than the interrogation scene that make it to the final cut. In this you actually get to see how jigsaw captured David (Leigh Whannell). As you can see I am running out of things to say about this so I will just finish with this: This is a great extra on the second DVD of the Uncut version of SAW.
