Saw (2004)

IMDB: Saw (2004)

Plot Outline: With a dead body laying between them, two men (Whannell and Elwes) wake up in the secure lair of a serial killer who's been nicknamed "Jigsaw" by the police because of his unusual calling card.

In the vein of psycho/serial-killer/twist films, this one does a decent job. While slow at times, the end twist surprised me if not for just a moment, and evoked an all-around dark thriller.

Rating: 6
