Personally I love a good scare. The fear. The curiosity. The tension and suspense. As human beings, I guess we all do – well, the strong hearted ones at least. But I love the gory stuff too; mix some blood and gruesome deaths with tension and suspense and you’ll get the perfect spine-chilling, revolting horror film.
A perfect example of this type of horror film is the series Saw, which started in 2004, with the most recent film being released in 2009, Saw VI. The makers of Saw have created 7 horrific films in total in the 5 year period, leaving the audience craving for more like toddlers craving candy.
But what is Saw?
Saw tells of a deadly game set up by the serial killer – Jigsaw. He manipulates and tests both the mental and physical strengths of his carefully selected victims, but like any gory horror, many souls are lost on the journey or “tests”, as the legendary Jigsaw might say.
Well the answers simple. Jigsaw does not like or tolerate any forms of corrupted justice; naturally, Jigsaw encounters many people can not simply just follow the law, so he takes justice into his own hands. But there’s a twist. If you can show him your obedience to the game, while also completing the sickly objectives set out in the time frame given, and still manage to survive to the final round, you may be free; however, you’ve got to have your game plan first. But what would your game plan be?
