Director Kevin Greutert mentioned in the DVD/Blu-Ray commentary track that the twitching and shivering Amanda (Shawnee Smith) does in her scenes with Cecil (Billy Otis) was real due to low temperatures and rain in Toronto at the time of filming. Shawnee couldn't stop shivering because she was cold and they were shooting outdoors. See more »

Despite the R-rated theatrical cut only being available on DVD and in 4:3 "full screen" format, online streaming platform Vudu has this cut in its original 1.85 widescreen ratio and in high definition. Aside from this, rental-exclusive DVDs of the film (such as from Redbox) featured a widescreen transfer of the R-rated theatrical cut, albeit in standard definition. See more »
I didn't really enjoy Saw V. I found it had too many flashbacks and the movie itself just felt like an excuse to make another Saw film.
However, Saw VI was a huge improvement over the last. The story was more interesting and the twists and turns were quite intriguing. One little problem i have with this film is that they went way too overboard with the blood and gore in this one, but i suppose that nowadays, thats what the Saw films are all about, which is a shame, considering the first film started off as a psychological thriller.
Apart from that, the film was quite enjoyable and there's definitely some little secrets that they will be able to use for more sequels. Bring on Saw VII i say!
