    My friends told me I should watch this. "It's quite good" they said. I watched it. It's bad. Not ridicuously bad, but still bad. I don't have to see this again, ever. Thank you.

    idk about you but getting stuck in a room with cary elwes does not sound like a bad night to me

    p.s. whoever was the sound editor on this movie should never work again

    An interesting concept that is just brutally bad. Some of the worst dialogue I've ever had the displeasure to sit through.

    GRADE: A-
    One of the most recent horror flicks I've seen that legitimately gave me goosebumps, James Wan does a phenomenal job directing on such a tight budget, giving this film a more mystery thriller kind of feel while keeping a horror vibe. The twists and turns taken here are jaw-dropping, even with the acting not being portrayed very greatly and too much time on flashbacks at moments, and it's disappointing to see that the rest of the series just seems to be torture porn unlike this one.

    Saw is a pretty smart little thriller/horror film that is held down by an annualized set of sequels that drag the idea further and further into gross out insanity.

    Two men find themselves chained to the walls a filthy room, a dead body with it's brains blown out between them. As the film unfolds they find out more and more about each other and their lives.

    This film hasn't aged well in the 11 years since it's release. The cinematography…

    I've always felt like the Saw franchise gets a bad rap. Yeah, the sequels are messy, almost torture porn, but the first film is really underrated. It's not as gory as its sequels, and focuses more on suspense and how scary isolation can be. And that ending is still great.

    It's weird looking back on the original 'Saw' after so much time, and remembering that it's really nothing like the rest of the films in the franchise, or the rest of the so-called "torture porn" genre that it helped birth. In fact, 'Saw' is kind of a slow burn thriller, more creepy than outright scary, with its bloodshed implied rather than overt. Which, in a way, is sort of nice.

    And while the concept is okay (and was pretty exciting…

    Around when this first came out it was one of the first R-rated horror movies I saw, and I remember sobbing on the couch in my parent's basement while I watched it. This time around, around 10ish years later, I wasn't as ~emotionally~ affected--but I still super enjoyed it! It's good to know this held up in some ways for me.
