The mastermind behind these sadistic games is a serial killer, nicknamed "Jigsaw". Each man must face rules and game objectives that force them to face the unimaginable. This film screams "sequel" all over it - and sure enough movie goers haven't had to wait long in between Saw and Saw II (2005) or Saw III for that matter (2006). The films (particularly the first one) do have a creepy pacing and cinematography that is so bleak and dismal, you can't imagine how anyone will make it out of there alive - or would want to after what they are forced to do to themselves and others. The character of Jigsaw, played by Tobin Bell, is more than just a Michael Myers type killer - satisfying a blood lust with no clear motive other than to kill.
