|small space, big mystery|
As they play their tapes, they learn that the only way for them to get out of their predicament alive is to kill the other by 6:00 or both of them will die. Trapped in a web of mystery, with time slowly closing on their fate, they soon realized they're the newest target of a madman obsessed with "helping" people recover under the belief that under a great amount of stress, a man is forced to fight for his life and finds a form of new appreciation for it. When one of the men learns that his family is in the wager, and the stranger he is with was involved in his life somehow, it soon escalates to climatic proportions that soon tests their trusts and will to survive.
|The most anticipated trap ever designed!|
|Yep, creepy...I want one.|
Instead, SAW creates an intense scenario between the two men, a brewing suspense that the film started to boil from the very moment they get to know each other, as that certain feeling of distrust can quickly shifts to something unexpected given that the men fails to work together.
|Their life, or your own? Make your choice.|
For an indie film, it sure did a lot as one of the few titles that changed the name of gore forever, and too, the fact it end up as a massive franchise of seven films and tons of merchandises! A must see semi-classic of sorts for every newcomer to horror.
