Waking up in a bathroom, two men, Adam and Dr. Lawrence Gordon, discover they have been captured by the infamous Jigsaw Killer. The men must escape before time runs out, otherwise, they will face the deadly consequences.Written by
The scene in which Dr. Gordon turns off the lights and whispers to Adam was written differently in the script. The characters were to cut open opposite ends of a long pipe with their hacksaws and speak through it. This sequence was actually shot but later cut, because director James Wan decided that the characters being able to cut through a pipe made no sense if they could not cut through their chains.

(at around 1h 7 mins) When Adam first remembers what happened before he was kidnapped, we see him making his way back to his apartment after snapping photos of Lawrence. The camera Adam has slung over his shoulder changes from scene to scene. In the hallway outside the apartment, Adam has a black camera with a long lens and a mounted flash unit. As he enters the apartment, he has a silver camera that appears to have a very short lens and no mounted flash. Once inside, he has the black camera with long lens and mounted flash again. See more »

The song "Bite The Hand That Bleeds" by Fear Factory that originally played over the end credits has been replaced on the uncut version of the film on DVD by an original piece of music by Charlie Clouser entitled "Zepp Overture". See more »
Wow. The critics weren't wrong. Not since seven has horror been portrayed so majestically.
From the first minute to last this film twists and turns you till you feel rather poorly. Just like 'Se7en', the all-round Grittiness that director James Wan creates disgusts and enthralls. Just like 'Se7en', there is a H U G E twist that makes your blood curdle.
A lack of star names helps the movie flow as the pace builds to a finale that won't be forgotten by this viewer in a hurry!
I still can't sleep.
It is well scripted, well acted, and, for everyone who guesses the killer after the first few minutes, keeps you guessing right up to the final reel. It is better than Seven for shock value. It is not over the top gory but there is a final scene which makes you sweat.
Very highly recommended!
