The smartest horror film of the noughties...

Saw truly is one of the smartest horror films ever made. One of the reasons why I loved this film was because it was really clever and it didnt screw up at all. It all adapted really well not only to see how scary it is but also to see the extremely psychological side to it to what some human beings on Earth are really like. It is a real teaser because the audience arent sure whether the victims a... read more

the 2004 movie that started the series, about lessons learned in life; the hard way. Danny Glover plays a detective on a hunt to find a madman who’s victims deaths are just they’re failures of an unsuspecting unwilling game. The game depends on how they view life and what they choose to take for granted; setting up the room they die in and how they get helped before they even realize it. The m... read more

“The reputation of the "Saw" franchise has ebbed and flowed over the years, sometimes declining thanks to an endless stream of sequels. While these subsequent installments became increasingly centered on the series' signature death traps and eventually became big-budget gore films, it's easy to forget that the original "Saw" was a much different case. Having more in common with "Seven" than "Hostel", this film stands as one of the best horror films of the 2000's decade. While the modus operandi of antagonist "Jigsaw" remains the same, this first installment is much more concerned with plot and suspense than buckets of blood. That's not to saw that it doesn't have it's grisly moments, but they aren't the main focus of the film. Instead, director James Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell seek” read more

"The Saw series gets too much attention, yet this first one, not enough. In comparison, it isn't the gorefest that the advertising photos would suggest. This is one of the best slow burners of the genre. The first time I watched, the twist at the end COMPLETELY blew me away. It was so clever. • Most well-known bad doll: Jigsaw • Trivia: The doll's name is really Billy."
