Saw is a testament to what a filmmaker can do with a limited budget and some creativity.  The story is tight and tense, with an iconic twist ending that spawned one of the great catch phrases of horror film: “Game over.” 

Saw is about a serial killer named Jigsaw who technically has never killed anybody.  Instead, he kidnaps his victims and confronts them with deadly puzzles in which they can either make an incredible sacrifice and escape or die. 

Jigsaw is a killer with a purpose beyond killing.  He wants his victims to confront the fragility of the life they take for granted and be grateful to have it all.  Wan’s amazing debut is one of the only truly iconic horror flicks to be released in the 21st century, and it will be remembered for a long time to come. 


James Wan is a difficult director to pin down.  He’s one of the best horror directors working today, but is also responsible for some stinkers in the genre.  What’s more is he is a hell of an action director, so good that DC has brought him on board to direct the upcoming Aquaman movie, set to be released on December 21, 2018.
