    Constantly neuters all the pleasure of watching a cinematic Escape the Room game by including soap opera police work.

    finally caught up with Saw. not nearly as gruesome as most of what it has inspired in the following years. wonder if the sequels are worth watching.

    This is probably the sixth time I've watched this, and I was once again blown away by just how great it is. My fiancé had never seen it, and since we're both major horror nerds, I finally had him watch it with me. Spoiler alert: he LOVED it. I feel like this is just one of those classics that is so high-quality that it's necessary viewing for a horror buff. Plus, Cary Elwes is GREAT in this.

    The movie is sick and it's even more sick that I decided to revisit it. I got the next three sequels ready on Netflix. I haven't seen them nor am I in any rush but I there's a twisted itch I will eventually scratch.

    I got worried that people were starting to think that I wasn't Extreme 2 D Max, so I've decided to watch the Saw films. All of them. Maybe.

    Obviously this is dated as hell now (that horrible soundtrack, those gross quick cuts) and Cary Elwes has absolutely no business acting in a serious movie, but whatever, it's a bit of harmless fun. Always good to see Danny Glover Glover-ing it up regardless of context.

    I assume I'll have become massively resentful that this movie ever existed by the time I get to Saw 14 or whatever, but for now... I am pro-Saw. Kinda. LET'S GET EXXXTREME

    I found this special horror episode of CSI: Whatever City to be a bland, lifeless, pointless piece of filth with some of the worst acting of all time.

    Wait this isn't CSI?

    Well, it's just as shit.

    The origins of the exhausting self-harm/torture porn-based horor movie trend, Saw probably isn't nearly as scary or boundary pushing as you remembered it to be.

    Cary Elwes performance as the Doctor fell way too far into the melodrama corner for me, but a big part of that may simply be his character, whose expanding background feels rather contrived.

    Overall, it's an interesting step back into horror movie history, and undoubtably an important moment in the genre, but it won't haunt you.

    A grungy horror thriller whose set design looks like it could give both its characters and its audience tetanus, James Wan's "Saw" is a dark and disturbing piece of work. Combining gore, physical shocks, and a twisty narrative, the film is a cold nightmare of atmosphere and life-or-death morality.

    When two men wake in a strange place to find themselves players in a game that could possibly cost them their lives, the two are forced to confront each other, their…

    Good if you want to be grossed out. Bad if you want to learn about carpentry. (I would suggest Life as a House.)
