Trivia

One thousand special posters were made and were sold for $20 each in support of "Saw III" and the American Red Cross. Tobin Bell donated two vials of his own blood to be dumped into the red ink vat. All 1000 posters were then printed with the red ink vat and later sold. However, the first print was put up for auction. It was also signed by the entire cast and crew. All proceeds from both sales went to the American Red Cross. See more »

Goofs

In "The Rack" room you get a shot of the box holding the shotgun and the key. When first viewed from the back the keyfob and the key are directly parallel to the front and back of the box. The scene cuts back to the guy in the rack, then back to the box. Now the key and keyfob have moved and are almost vertical to the sides (the judge hadn't started to move it yet, there's nothing to explain how or why it would have moved). See more »

This movie will please hardcore Saw fans
28 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

This movie, as always with the previous Saw installments, has once again proved to be worthwhile. The set-ups were great, the torture devices and scenes were unimaginable with NO limits whatsoever, and the ingenious traps Jigsaw puts on all of his victims were unbelievable. Saw 3 will keep you wondering what will be the outcome of the end. No doubt did this movie impress me and hopefully Saw fans as well. Now, as a warning, this movie did have some EXTREMELY sickening scenes with constant groans from audience in theater, but will nonetheless please its viewers. I highly recommend fans, and anyone who loves a good gross-out horror movie buff to see this latest Saw installment.
