Movie Info

David, an orderly at a hospital, tells his horrific story of being kidnapped and forced to play a vile game of survival. This short film made by the same filmmakers is a sample of what would become the 2004 feature length movie, Saw.

Audience Reviews for Saw (short film)

The short film where the idea for the franchise began. Whilst it's not the exact story of the first Saw film, it concentrates on the motive for the games that have become popular and entertaining through it's gory series

This was better than I thought it was going to be. It was smarter than I thought.

Saw is a fresh horror film with tons of violence. One film is enough for me though. Who needs a big franchise with people getting brutally killed.
