Synopsis

All seven films from the 'Saw' horror franchise. In 'Saw' (2004) two men - Adam (Leigh Whannell) and Dr Lawrence Gordon (Cary Elwes) - wake up to find themselves chained to pipes in a room they have never seen before. Between them lies the dead body of a man with apparently self-inflicted gunshot wounds. As they begin to piece together the circumstances that led to their predicament, the pair realise they are the latest victims of a serial killer known as Jigsaw (Tobin Bell), who orchestrates situations in which his captors will be driven to kill each other. They also learn that the killer has taken Gordon's family hostage. Will the men be able to outwit this sadistic psychopath in time to save themselves and the hostages? In 'Saw II' (2005), while investigating the bloody aftermath of a grisly murder, Detective Eric Mason (Donnie Wahlberg) begins to suspect it is the work of notorious serial killer Jigsaw. Meanwhile, eight strangers, unaware of their connection to each other, are forced to play out a game that challenges their wits and puts their lives in jeopardy. In 'Saw III' (2006), after eluding the cops, Jigsaw turns an abandoned warehouse on the edge of town into a gruesome torture chamber. His new protégée Amanda (Shawnee Smith) kidnaps a doctor who is forced to keep the evil master alive. Barely clinging to life, Jigsaw begins to carry out his horrific plans for the doctor and another helpless victim. In 'Saw IV' (2007) two seasoned FBI profilers, Agent Strahm (Scott Patterson) and Agent Perez (Athena Karkanis), help veteran Detective Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) sift through Jigsaw's latest grisly game of victims and piece together the puzzle. However, when SWAT Commander Rigg (Lyriq Bent), the only local officer who has yet to experience Jigsaw's handiwork, is suddenly abducted, the agents are thrust into the madman's latest harrowing game. In 'Saw V' (2008), despite Jigsaw's death, his legacy continues as the string of gruesome murders shows no sign of abating. When Detective Hoffman and Agent Strahm are assigned to investigate the case, Strahm follows up on his hunch that his colleague is somehow involved in the new rash of killings. In 'Saw VI' (2009), Agent Strahm is dead and Detective Hoffman has been exposed as Jigsaw's undisputed replacement. As the FBI start narrowing their search for Hoffman, he is driven to protect Jigsaw's legacy and initiates a new game plan in order to ensure Jigsaw's eminent design is recognised once and for all. Finally, in 'Saw: The Final Chapter' (2010), when a group of survivors from Jigsaw's previous games form a support group, they enlist the services of self-help guru and fellow survivor Bobby Dagen (Sean Patrick Flanery) to help them come to terms with their experiences. Before long, however, secrets from Bobby's dark past have unleashed a new wave of terror.
