Saw ★★★

this movie is the reason that i have never and will never do an escape room - you're not gonna get me that easily, jigsaw!

this still holds up 15+ years later, it's a pretty effective slow burn, ratcheting up the tension before delivering a fun twist right at the end. everything about the set design and cinematography really gives you a sense of how gross it would be to be trapped in that bathroom trying to solve his very nasty puzzle.
