Scaretober-Movie Review: Saw

For the month of October I’ve dubbed it Scaretober in which I will be blogging every day in October. No, it’s not just random blogs in October but specifically scary movies movies. I’m definitely not one of those girls that enjoys scary movies by any means in fact this is a HUGE challenge for me since I’m such a wimp when it comes down to it. Some of the movies reviewed will be super scary and others will just be 90’s cheesy scary compared to today’s standards. There will be a few days during this month that I will be putting up more than one posts, because sometimes you can’t hold any awesome back when it comes to the blog.

Today’s movie is Saw.

I had about this movie so much before, but had never seen it so I thought that I would give it a shot. Oh yeah, I know I’m behind on post regularly so some days you may see more than one post as I’m trying to catch up. Back to the real reason you are here.

Here’s a quick run down of this 2004 movie. The opening scene of the movie a man awakens in a dilapidated darkened bathroom very confused as to what happened. When the lights in the room turn on suddenly he sees another man in the room along with what appears to be a corpse in the middle. Both of the men are chained to pipes on the sides of the room. The men tell each other their names and then they find a tapes in their pockets and one man finds a bullet and a key. After both men try the key in their locks they then notice the rape recorder and gun in the corpses hands. The first man’s tape tells him to escape and the other man’s tape tells him to kill the other man in order to save his family. Upon listening to the tape again the find 2 saws in the toilet tank and one of the realizes they might know who the killer might be. The movie flashes back to a crime scene where the media and the police first discovers the Jigsaw killer. The police find one victim that actually survived her capture. Meanwhile, the one man’s family is being held hostage by another person. After that the movie flashes back to present day and after that the movie moves rather quickly toward an ending.

I will keep to my promise and not spoil the entire movie for you. Why do all the horror movies end in what feels like an incomplete way? I have so many questions about this movie that I can’t seem to find anyone to answer, so let me know if you have seen this movie and can answer my questions. Definitely recommend this movie, I would definitely say I understand why people revolve their Halloweens around Saw movies.

I hope that you enjoyed this selection of the Scaretober series and that you will keep coming back throughout the month to see what other movies I watch. Also if you would like to see what movies that I have watched in the past you can find them here.  Also feel free to leave suggestions on videos or movies that you think I should watch.
