FAQs

  • Jill Tuck (Betsy Russell), wife of deceased John Kramer/Jigsaw (Tobin Bell), informs Detective Matt Gibson (Chad Donella) about Detective Mark Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) in exchange for police protection. While Jill hides from Hoffman, he has already initiated another game in which Bobby Dagen (Sean Patrick Flanery), the leader of a Jigsaw Survivors Group and author of S.U.R.V.I.V.E, an account of his ordeal as a victim of one of Jigsaw's games, is placed through another series of trials in order to save his best friend Cale (Dean Armstrong), his lawyer Suzanne (Rebecca Marshall), his public relations agent Nina (Naomi Snieckus), and his wife Joyce (Gina Holden).

  • Saw: The Final Chapter is the last of seven films in the Saw series, originally conceived by Australian screenwriters Leigh Whannell and James Wan. The other six films in the series include Saw (2004) (2004), Saw II (2005) (2005), Saw III (2006) (2006), Saw IV (2007) (2007), Saw V (2008) (2008), and Saw VI (2009) (2009). Its sequel is Jigsaw (2017) (2017).

  • Yes. The first scene in the film shows Dr. Gordon (Cary Elwes) crawling out of the bathroom and using a hot steam pipe to cauterize his leg wound, following the events of the first Saw film. He also appears during and at the end of the film.

  • With 1 minute and 28 seconds left, Bobby starts pulling himself to the ceiling, using the chains that are attached to the hooks in his pectoral muscles, the trap he claimed to have survived. At 40 seconds, he reaches the ceiling and attempts to put together the cord that will deactivate Joyce's trap. At 28 seconds, he is just about to bring together the two ends of the cord, when the hooks rip through his pecs and he falls to the ground. The clock keeps ticking, 9... 8.. 7... until ...1, when a brazen bull capsule closes around Joyce, essentially burning her alive. Bobby is electrocuted when he attempts to break through the wires surrounding Joyce's platform.

    Meanwhile, Hoffman makes his way through police headquarters, killing everyone in his path, until he finds the cell where Jill is. She attempts to get away by stabbing him in the neck with a pencil and running. Hoffman finds Jill hiding in an evidence room and drags her out, then straps her in a chair and places a Reverse Bear Trap (one of the traps on the shelf in the evidence room) around her head. Her life flashes before her eyes until the clock runs out and the collar rips open her mouth. Hoffman then says, "Game Over", and leaves the room. Hoffman heads back to his warehouse hideout, packing somethings and setting the place on fire to destroy the remaining evidence. While heading to his car, Hoffman is attacked by three people wearing pig masks. The leader pulls off his mask: It's Dr. Gordon. It's revealed that, after Dr. Gordon escaped from the bathroom and used a steam pipe to cauterize his leg wound, he was rescued by Jigsaw and nursed back to health. Dr. Gordon became Jigsaw's "greatest asset", providing the surgical skills needed to perform some of the more delicate procedures required for some traps (sewing keys into people, sewing eyes/mouths shut, etc.). Dr. Gordon is also the one who recommended Dr. Lynn Denlon for Jigsaw's operation. He also wrote the note to Hoffman found that said, "I know who you are". It is revealed that the envelope Jill slipped under someone's office door was for Dr. Gordon, with instructions on what he was to do should anything every happen to Jill (as it has become clear that Jigsaw never truly trusted Hoffman). Jigsaw also reveals to Dr. Gordon the location of the room he was locked in.

    In the final scene, Hoffman awakens in that room and finds that, similar to Dr. Gordon's trap, he has been chained to the wall. Unlike Dr. Gordon, however, he will not be given the chance to escape. Hoffman was given a second chance by Jigsaw (as seen in Saw V), and chose to continue a life of brutality. Hoffman reaches for the hacksaw and Dr. Gordon smiles and says, "I don't think so." He picks it up and throws it out of the room. As he leaves, Gordon turns off the light, tells Hoffman, "Game over", and closes the door, leaving Hoffman to die.

  • The other two masked men never reveal themselves in the movie. On the DVD commentary track, however, they are revealed to be Brad and Ryan, the two survivors from the trap at the beginning of the film (the love triangle trap).

  • Dina, Kara, Dan, Jake, Evan, Alex, Nina, Suzanne, Cale, Junkie, Detective Matt Gibson, Policeman #1, Policeman #2, Dr. Heffner, Dr. Heffner's assistant, SWAT Officer #1, SWAT Officer #2, SWAT Officer #3, SWAT Officer #4, SWAT Officer #5, Officer #1, Officer Palmer, Officer #2, Officer Rogers, Joyce Dagen, and Jill Tuck. Detective Mark Hoffman's and Bobby Dagen's fates are left open.

  • It may have been intended to be the last, but there is Jigsaw (2017), with an expected release date of October 27th, 2017.

  • It was filmed in 3D. They did not convert from 2D to 3D.

  • There's not a lot of films out there similar to the Saw films where someone sets up traps that other people must pass through at the risk of death. Probably the movies that come closest to the Saw films are the Cube film series: Cube (1997) (1997), Cube 2: Hypercube (2002) (2002), and Cube Zero (2004) (2004); this film series involves various people, all with questionable backgrounds, waking up to find themselves prisoners in a gigantic Rubik's cube, in which some of the rooms have boobytraps with lethal outcomes. Another worthy mention is The Collector (2009) (2009) and its sequel The Collection (2012) (2012).

  • The unrated version, which is only available on Blu-ray disc among the features, in contrast to the previous films of the Saw franchise, no plot extensions. For the unrated version of the seventh part, only prolonged gore sequences have been reinserted but one has to look very closely, because these 19 changes account for a total of only 12 added seconds of footage.
