Directed by James Wan from a script penned by Leigh Whannell, Saw is a psychological thriller focusing on two men who wake up in a secure lair of a serial killer with a dead body lying between them. The killer, nicknamed “Jigsaw,” leaves them tape recorded messages with details of how to make it out alive. The only way for one man to make it out alive is to do the unthinkable. The two men desperately try to find a way out, while also trying to figure out who’s behind their kidnapping.
