A fantastic, original horror, despite how its sequels progressed. Saw brought something new to its genre with a great villain and some really disgusting torture scenes. This films scares without really trying to, entertaining you with how sick and twisted it is. But it looks the part too, despite a low budget, with a great set and use of colour.
This is a movie that sounds a lot worse than it is when you start analyzing it. I found it very easy to poke holes in the believability of all of this, but that's missing the point. Nothing here is grounded, especially not the villain, so basically we're at the wim of the scriptwriter. Since the villain seems to have the power to do anything, and he isn't shown or given any story, the villain is the writer and the…
When two men awake to find themselves chained together in a ruined bathroom, they discover the escaping could cost them everything.
The original movie in the hugely popular franchise is a great example of the 'less is more; school of movie making. The plot is deliberately thin and a majority of the movie is based around the two characters that are locked together and it is through their recent activities that you learn about the people around them. The characters…
impressionante toda a saga Saw. O roteiro é muito surpreendente e o início para mim, é um dos melhores
A surprisingly good horror movie with some nice twists and camera work. It's stirred up a bit of controversy since it's considered the start of the "torture porn" sub-genre, but in reality there isn't that much of that stuff in this one. It's there, but it's not the driving force of the movie or even that prevalent.
Some 10 years after it's release, Saw must now be considered the daddy of the modern horror genre.
It's as inventive as any movie that preceded it, or has followed it.
It's sick, it's twisted, it's deliriously entertaining.
It doesn't go all out to terrify, and it rarely manages to scare, but make no mistakes about it, Saw is a horror.
In fact, it's one of the finest.
There's lots I could say here, but I'll keep it short and sweet, I rate this the highest not based on how gory and horror like it was but for it's originality, and what a great franchise this starts out as.
First I'm going to talk about certain cast members, Cary played Lawrence Gordon really well, but his character fucking annoyed the hell out of me, he just did. On the other hand Leigh did a better job, loved his…
I want to play a game.
This movie did something for the horror genre that i've missed so much, A NEW STORY, A NEW KIND OF EVIL, A NEW KIND OF WAY TO DIE.
im obsessed about the "SAW" saga, cause honestly, for me it is one of the most most innovative and intellingent horror films of the decade.
Quiero jugar un juego.
Esta película hizo algo por el genero de horror que había extrañado, UNA NUEVA HISTORIA, UN…
First movie of the year wow,
I have seen this movie before many times and i own about 5-6 different editions of it.
now i am sure most of you would have already seen this movie but if not i will tell you the story outline.
It starts with 2 guys chaned to a old toilet in a big bathroom and they dont know each other but the have so many hours to figure a way out, now there is…
One of the reasons the Saw films work while other low-brow gore-porn shitfests don't is partly due to the fascinating (but morally reprehensible) premise: rehabilitation via trial, which kind of falls apart once the justifications start becoming more and more asinine, and by the 5th or 6th one the adventure has turned into an almost whimsical farce and you're waiting for Jigsaw to put someone in a trap for leaving the toilet seat up.
With the first film James Wan…
I'm not a fan of the horror genre in general and hadn't seen any of the Saw films before (actually I have a vague memeory of seeing "Saw V" for some reason) but thanks to it's cultural impact I figured I'd finally give the original a go.
The premise is solid, two men wake, chained to a wall in a room, one has to kill the other or his family will be killed. We slowly learn more about them as…
James’s Wan first director horror film with college friend Leigh Whannell. Brings us one of best psychological thrillers since “Seven” I’ve loved this film from very first watch and still until this day, I am still shocked by ending twist with amazing score track that become the theme song of the Saw franchise.
Storyline: With a dead body lying between them, two men wake up in the secure lair of a serial killer who's been nicknamed "Jigsaw". The men must…
