Trapped in the chambers of a terrifying mastermind by the name of "Jigsaw", several victims find themselves walking on needles, killing others, and cutting their own flesh and blood in order to survive and escape the monster. While you don't discover the identity in the first movie of Saw, the movie is so spine-chilling and petrifying that you will actually want to see more. The movie captures the audience's attention and keeps the viewer on their toes by creating such a perplexing mood.

This film's amateur execution does fine justice to the whole adolescent idea and probably should have been the last we saw of saw. I'm sorry.

Honestly this movie, and series in general, has some interesting ideas about revenge and forcing people through adversity to realize what is important in life. A highly recommended film, the series is really overplayed though.

When I watched it for the first time, it was pretty unique in a way. Loses a bit after you know the twist from your first viewing, though.

An effective enough taster of what was to come – it is interesting that (for better or worse) all of the iconic stylistic elements are present here in the amateur version (including “Jigsaw”’s design) and I would argue Whannel’s performance is more interesting and effective here than in the souped-up redo. Would be less remarkable if it didn’t spin off into its franchise, but on its own terms, a decent attention-getter.

By far one of the best horror movies, and one that actually took effort to play head games with the viewer, and not just have meaningless gore make up the entire movie. Believable, far from the best, but one of the highest points in the genre.

One of the original torture porn films, directed with a deft hand by James Wan and featured an appropriately simple concept and atmosphere.

The most brilliantly twisted movie since Se7en, this film truly explores the ins and outs of what is truly evil, and whether evil actually lives within the victim rather than the creator.

It's basically one of the backstory plot points from the later feature film, and it's not as well done as what you'll find in that. Why does James Wan insist on telling these things through a flashback structure?

Meh. It's creepy enough, but it just feels like a teaser for the full-length version. And I don't think it was necessary to film half of it in a German discotheque, but that's Saw for you.
