13 Sinister Traps From “Saw” [NSFW]



The very first Saw film, released back in 2004 and directed by James Wan, was a unique presence in the horror genre, one driven by taut suspense and diabolically elaborate “puzzles” (read: traps) set up by series antagonist Jigsaw and the critical seal of approval out of the Sundance film festival — a very rare sight for a horror movie.
