    The editing pace makes this film incredibly intense, the story and Jigsaw as a serial killer are quite mind blowing as well. James Wan never disappoints.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    In 1899 they had to evacuate the city of Freiburg due to a compound named Thioacetone being dropped in a laboratory. It's horrible smell makes rotten eggs smell seem like a rosary explosion, people were vomiting in buildings 200 meters away and the people in the lab fell into a coma.

    Now, Saw is a lot like this. It makes you wanna puke, yet you still find it highly interesting and can't turn your eyes away. You are curious as…

    First watch for a few years and I think it holds up really well. The acting is shoddy but the concept, style and look of the film are still way better than most of the torture porn knock-offs that followed it.

    Messy, dodgy third act, bad performances, still kinda fun. Interesting to see how future films expanded the mythology from some pretty disparate elements, probably a more impressive feat than anything actually in this film. It's pretty funny how far removed Jigsaw's mantra is in this film from that of future films.

    Still to this day, James Wan's best movie.

    It's kind of funny really because when you think Saw you're like really, It's good? (because of all the god awful sequels that gave this movie a bad rep) and yeah actually, it is really damn good. Saw is a film that keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end and always keeps you guessing and those are the types of movies that I love.

    Sure is the…

    The first in what might be a 7 part viewing. I just assumed that the first one was the best (I have seen 1, 2, and 7 before this), but revisiting this first one again makes me hope that isn't right. I was mostly disappointed in this, as it wasn't as terrifying as I remember it being 11 years ago.

    Everything that happens in the bathroom where most of the movie is staged is pretty good. But the flashbacks are…

    Never has a film's reputation been damaged by it's sequels than 2004's modern horror classic Saw. While it's many sequels rely upon needless gore, the original takes a more psychological path, often feeling similar to David Filcher's Se7en. The premise is well known as a surgeon and a lawyer wake up chained in an old dilapidated bathroom as part of a serial killer's twisted game.

    While the acting may be laughable at times, I was surprised at how much I…

    James Wan saltó a la fama con esta pelicula y con mucha razón. Funciona como historia de terror (y presencias sobrenaturales), como thriller con tintes detectivescos/policiacos y como una especie de whodunnit, con todo y una revelación dramática del culpable. Curiosamente suena a la formula que hizo exitosa a "Scream", aunque sin los adolescentes.

    A una década de su aparición me llaman la atención varias cosas: lo cuidados que están los detalles, lo mala que es la actuación del personaje…

    Before going on to birth a painfully drawn-out, poorly-written, and stupidly-acted series of mediocre horror flicks, Saw was one of a kind. A slasher movie at its core, but with wonderful originality and great writing. The acting can be a bit weak at times but everything else about this movie is just plain great.

    One of my favorite Wan films. The twist is one of my favorites in any movie I can recall. When I think of twists, I usually think of The Usual Suspects and Saw (as weird as that combo is). Very effective, creative film overall.

    Better than I remember, acting really does let it down its even laughable at times.
