8 Great...Human-Hunting Movies

Jul 08, 2010 Comments

Serial killer Jigsaw has a really twisted sense of righteousness. He hunts down and kidnaps his criminal victims, but rather than mete out justice face to face, he leaves them trapped in deadly devices or booby trapped rooms with physically painful ways of escaping and surviving. Almost none of them do. This installment went well beyond the first movie’s concept of having two people try to escape their bounds by having eight people wake up in a house pumped with poison gas and have to work together to find an antidote and escape. Yeah, right -- we know they’ll fall apart at the seams. People are so predictable. It’s hard to find humor in this one because this series is so bleak, but it’s a wild ride with the usual slick Saw twist.
