    If there is one thing I am glad I missed, is the whole torture porn era.
    Movies who's sole purpose was to usually just show as much blood and gore as they possibly can to "excite viewers" into watching the film.

    While the Saw franchise was leading the charge along with Hostel, the first Saw gets bad reputation as among the torture porn films.

    Saw, while not shy from showing blood and horrific deaths and traps, does not focus on…

    It may be badly written and nonsensical, but it more than makes up for it with its suspense, mystery, sets and the majority of the film taking place in its infamous bathroom.

    In many ways its a shame that this wasn't allowed to remain a standalone film in its own right. Although some of the sequels are good, this was clearly never going to be bettered. It had an originality that now just simply isn't felt. 10 years on though and its difficult to name too many other films in this genre that are as good (that haven't been directed by James Wan too).

    "What's your name?"
    "My name is Very Fucking Confused; what's your name?"

    I went into Saw thinking it was just a dull contemporary horror flick that gets all it's "thrills" from gore.

    I was wrong.

    It was thrilling and suspenseful to the very last minute.

    Hopefully the rest of the film series is the same.

    A slightly thrilling movie with semi-liberal gore whose only saving grace is a trick that Se7en pulled off more elegantly.

    Lo cierto es que el zumo que le sacaron exprimiéndola a base de secuelas ha manchado un poco el nombre de esta primera parte.

    Indie-film the way it should be done! This is a class example of high production value on a low budget.

    Incorrectly labelled by many as the film that commenced the 'torture porn' phenomenon, Saw is director James Wan's debut feature which beautifully exhibits his instant grip & comfort with the elements of the genre this picture belongs to. And even though its strong cult following spawned a series that bathed in gruesome torture, this 1st chapter of the Saw franchise is undoubtedly the most compact, story-driven movie that works as an exciting, effective & shocking horror mystery full of twists & turns.
