    The film that launch'd a thousand sequels.

    Two men, locked in a filthy room, a dead body between them, must work together to understand how they came to be there, and what they must do to escape. Meanwhile, a deranged serial killer, with a penchant for bloodsport, is at large and exacting his own brand of justice on those he thinks do not appreciate the fact that they are alive.

    Saw is an extremely tough film to review.

    I find…

    Two strangers wake up chained to pipes at opposite ends of a dirty bathroom. One receives a message that he is to kill the other or else his family will be killed. What a premise!

    When Saw first came out, I think I went in loaded with baggage from the "old world" of horror. I objected to the fast-cut editing and the saturated lighting and, although I enjoyed the story, couldn't get over the style. Years have passed, I've watched…

    Definitely one of the best opening scenes / general premises ever. A truly great twist ending too. The rest of it ain't bad either, if a bit silly.

    The super-fast editing doesn't seem as terrible these days as it did at time of release... does that mean it was ahead of its time?

    this film was so revolutionary for modern horror, but it also created a spawn of shitty ridiculous gore-porn films that just wanted to make films to torture people in ridiculous ways. ugh it's catch 22.
    this one had cary elwes too tho

    "Congratulations. You are still alive. Most people are so ungrateful to be alive. But not you. Not anymore."

    A classic gore fest. Honestly, I think these films have a bad rep, but I find the writing to be awesome. I haven't seen a one that didn't have me staring at the screen with my mouth open by the end of it.

    Once in the cinema at a sneak preview, we got a barf bag for saw III, because many people would be throwing up. That does not do it for me, so i just walked out even before the movie started (a new record!). Now I got SAW I, and decided to give it a try. Boy, talk about expectations, in this case they were way off. This is a story about a guy who has as victims people who do…

    I have to say, I definitely was wrong for judging this movie before watching it. Hearing about the Saw franchise, many imagine major gore and little plot development. Preparing to watch this, I was ready to roll my eyes throughout the entire thing. I was proven wrong.
    In my opinion, this film felt a lot more like a psychological thriller than a horror movie, as it didn't feel as if it was meant to be very scary. Or maybe I'm…
