SAW

SAW – An unsettling and inspiring entry into the horror genre. The latest sequel, Spiral is slated to release May 13th, 2021.

SAW is the type of movie that just makes me feel weird, and I think that’s the point of the filmmakers.

The color grading, rageful soundtrack, and sped up framerate illicit feelings of despair and fear throughout most of the run time. The disgusting set dressing makes my skin crawl for pretty much every second of the movie. It reminds me a lot of Se7en or Twelve Monkeys. Everything is rusty and wet, covered in dirt and who knows what else. Ugh.

The traps and situations that the victims of Jigsaw find themselves in push the characters to their absolute limits and makes them question their humanity to their very core. I’ve never watched the sequels, but I did read through the fandom page and it is convoluted to say the least.

SAW is the first movie of popular director James Wan, and it is currently in the process of a reboot (Maybe? I can’t find concrete answers if it’s a reboot or a sequel as of right now). Spiral, starring Chris Rock and Samuel L Jackson is set to release on May 13, 2021.
