Jigsaw and his young apprentice, Amanda, are dead. But the grisly games continue. Five supposed strangers find themselves in the midst of a game, and believe they are in a survival of the fittest competition. Via his now infamous video linked puppet, Jigsaw conveys the message that they should ignore their instincts. Meanwhile, agent Peter Strahm wants to prove that Mark Hoffman is an apprentice to Jigsaw, and pursues him as he continues his twisted games. What Strahm does not realize is that Hoffman is testing him, and must pass his test in order to stay alive. Written by
Real animal blood was used for the final trap. The director said they wouldn't have used it if they'd known how bad it was going to smell. See more »
During the pendulum trap scene: When we see Seth's face for the first time, the collar around his neck appears to have a bolt in the center on the underside holding it closed; however, once Seth dies the collar opens and we see the bolt is missing. See more »
To say the least, I was NOT disappointed. I enjoyed the film as much as I thought I would. Going in, I had some doubts, what with a new director and this being a fifth installment in a horror series (they usually start sucking by the 3rd).
As soon as the opening credits start, you can already tell that a different director had his hands on the project. Acceptence doesn't take long to sink in though. As expected, the film meets the typical Saw requirements. Multiple traps and more revealing back-story.
Simply put, Saw V should not disappoint the loyal Saw fan. I know I'll be back for the next installment with bells on.
Seeing that this is the fifth film, you simply MUST see 1-4 in order to truly understand all the flashbacks. I don't want to give anything away, so all I will say is this: The very last trap in this film is one of my new favorites. . .
