Saw ★★★★★

My annual reign of terror begins!

Why don’t more horror movies utilize wide angle lenses? Those shots in the bathroom where you can see everything all grimy and in focus are perfect. Insidious: Chapter 2 has what I feel to be his strongest directions, but Wan worked wonders on a budget at making this look at vivid as possible.

New favorite detail: John coughing in the middle of a tape and not bothering to re-record it. Mini cassettes were a luxury item in 2004.
