During the footage of John Kramer when he is ill and apparently going through chemotherapy, he quite clearly has a small, thin beard on his chin. Chemotherapy kills rapidly dividing cells, such as cancer cells, hair cells and fingernails. It would be impossible to grow facial hair when going through this therapy. See more »

Jigsaw -Tobin Bell committing new cruel and twisted murders from beyond
16 October 2010 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Again Jigsaw/Tobin Bell executing murders full of scares , chills and suspense . John Kramer (Tobin Bell) still lives from beyond the tomb , thanks to tape dug out of his autopsied stomach and by means of various flashbacks with the puppet-master Jigsaw. Conscious, throughout , Kramer entertains himself by monitoring the tests against his victims, he's devised. Thus the machinations begin again and the story tries to spark life into a disembowelled body. The picture starts with an unknown man and a woman under the torture of a machine and tied into a room of pain . Later on , it happens inside a store the vice president a medical insurance company named "Umbrella Health¨(Peter Outerbridge) attempts to figure out cryptic video tracks and getaway fiendishly body-trapped places . The challenging is how to get out of Kramer's imprisonment of new unfortunates in a single looked room . Meantime, Jill Tuck (Betsy Russell), Jigsaw's wife from the former movies , is shown opening the Box that left her husband containing six envelopes . One time dead Jigsaw, now Mark Hoffman (Costas Mandaylor) is the last person who can follow the legacy of the strange series killer . The twisted imagination Jigsaw and his pupil lavish upon their engines of pain with thrills and chills. Although the perverse master/protégé is explored to some effect , the flashback edition structure is more complex and confusing than the previous films , though is packed with some flaws and gaps.

This exciting denouement details astonishing murders at the hands of the dead deviser who is planning again gruesome and complex killing set-pieces. This sixth sequel from original by James Wan, contains grisly terror, tension, suspense and lots of blood and gore . The film takes accent as suspense as well as terror with creepy use of images-shock and slick edition. Provides an imaginative and well-knit screenplay plenty of twists and surprises , though develops the mythology of Jigsaw in an ambitious but ultimately predictable manner . Like David Fincher's ¨Seven¨ and Dario Argento's ¨Tenebre, Suspiria, Deep red¨, it packs inventively twisted murders , this fuses an intricate chiller argument with horrible sensibility and relentless tension. This frightening movie was rated by Secretary of Spanish Culture as ¨X¨ and the production company to be obligated cut scenes in the only one case of censorship in several years. Sinister and mysterious atmosphere , has been made by cameraman David Armstrong and eerie musical score adequate for mystery and horror by Charlie Clousier, both of them usual of franchise. This sequel employs the same brutal puzzle logic as its predecessors toying the viewer in much the same manner that cruel murderer , well performed by the soft-voiced , pale Tobin Bell . He's a secondary actor working from the 80s in TV series (Walker Texas Rager, Stargate SG1, Alias, 24) and occasionally for cinema (Goodfellas, The firm, Ruby, Black mask 2), achieving success with Jigsaw character . The motion picture is professionally directed by Kevin Greutert . It's followed by Saw 7 ,3D , in production .
