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 surveillance camera footage of Adam and Dr. Gordon was shot separately and spliced together during post-production, which is the reason for the strange angle of the two characters in the footage. See more »
Lawrence was the police's initial suspect in the Jigsaw Killings. Yet it never occurred to them that these killings took a huge amount of time to plan, setup, and execute, so a surgeon who is constantly working doesn't make sense as a suspect. The devices had to be custom built, the rooms configured, and clues planed and hidden; the victims were also under surveillance for several weeks. So doing all of this required several hours. Lawrence is an oncologist, a doctor with dual specialties like this often works 90-100 hours a week easily so most of his whereabouts during the day would have been known by his coworkers. While it's possible that some of the work could have been done at night he wasn't able to survey the victims at that time, plus if he was frequently staying up all night to do all of this it would have shown in his surgical skills; his ability to perform surgery would have been severely diminished if he was suffering from sleep deprivation. It did not make sense that Lawrence was a suspect, which is something an experienced homicide detective would have realized right away. 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 »
Not only does this movie create an extremely tense atmosphere the moment it starts, it has plenty of gore and violence to bombard your eyes, not to mention that it has one of the best twists seen in any horror movie.
I watched this film alone at night with the lights off, expecting to be freaked out by it since I thought it was just another typical horror movie; but instead I was completely intrigued by the story line, and utterly drawn into the film for the whole 100 minutes. At the end I did not feel scared, rather, I felt something very few horror movies have to offer: satisfaction! This movie left me in a slightly disturbed but very thoughtful state. It did not give me nightmares, rather, it plagued my day-dreams; for two days my thoughts could not stray far from this film, that's how powerful it is.
If you want a cringingly gory and violent horror movie, watch "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" or "Hostel"; if you want a nightmarishly scary horror movie, watch "The Grudge" or "The Ring"; if you want a clever and disturbing horror movie with an excellent story and a great twist, watch "Saw".
