As part of a running gag in the "Saw" series, the filming crew always hides what they call a "fart machine" in one of the sets, and make it go off in a particular serious scene, to see how long the actor or actors can keep a straight face. This time, Lyriq Bent was the victim. He actually managed to remain in a character a couple of seconds before bursting into laughter. See more »

Saw IV continues the story on Jigsaws efforts to teach people the value of their lives and what they can do to survive from his dangerous traps. Previously however Jigsaw died yet his familiars continue his work.
This would seem like a clever film, that fills the gaps like Saw III but it basically fills nothing but our mouths with vomit.
Saw IV contains nothing more than pure blood-shed, despite the occasional police investigation everything seems a bit too morbid and dark...
A little too much this time, bring back the cleverness!
