Saw 3

Tagline: Legends Never Die
October 27, 2006

After his capture (at the end of Saw 2), Detective Eric Matthews escapes from his captors.

Later, Lieutenant Rigg as well as Detectives Allison Kerry and Mark Hoffman, investigate a pair of Jigsaw murders that feature inescapable traps – a development that goes against Jigsaw’s normal routine.

Meanwhile, Jeff Denlon – a father whose son was killed by a drunk driver – is put through a series of tests, given the choice of either saving or allowing the deaths of a group of people involved in his son’s death and/or the subsequent DUI trial (a witness who refused to testify, a lenient judge, as well as the drunk driver responsible for the incident).

In addition to Jeff’s “game,” his wife, Lynn Denlon, a doctor suffering from depression, is tasked with keeping John Kramer alive (now in the late-stages of complications from his cancer) until Jeff’s game is complete. Amanda Young oversees both games. However, as time passes Amanda grows increasingly distressed as Kramer’s love for her comes into question and, despite the fact that Jeff’s trials are over, she refuses to let Lynn go, claiming that no one truly changes. Amanda reveals that she has designed her trials to be inescapable, punishing the victims. Amanda then tries to kill Lynn.

Jeff, now in the room with Jigsaw, sees Lynn in danger and shoots Amanda in the neck. As Amanda dies from her gunshot wound, Kramer reveals that he was not testing Lynn – he was testing Amanda all along. Jigsaw had unknowingly tasked her with helping someone stay alive – a test which she failed.

Kramer offers Jeff one last task: if he forgives Kramer for the pain he has caused Jeff’s family, Kramer will save his family; or, Jeff can kill Kramer – though his family will suffer for it. Jeff chooses to slash Kramer’s throat, and before dying, Kramer reveals that he was the only person who knew the location of Jeff’s daughter, Corbett, and that Jeff will have to participate in another game to find her. When Kramer finally dies, the device attached to his wife Lynn detonates – killing her in front of Jeff.

Saw 4

Tagline: It’s a Trap
October 26, 2007

Detective Mark Hoffman and Lieutenant Rigg discover Detective Allison Kerry’s body, in what appears to be another inescapable Jigsaw trap. Hoffman and Rigg then meet FBI agents Peter Strahm and Lindsey Perez, who are now investigating the Jigsaw murders. Strahm speculates that, given the height of the device Kerry is found in, there has to be another accomplice (besides Amanda Young) in the Jigsaw murders.

Rigg later awakens at home and discovers that he is caught up in a Jigsaw game – one that holds his life, as well as that of his old partner, Eric Matthews, at stake. Rigg is forced through a series of games to see the world as John Kramer did – face to face with criminals who have escaped justice: Brenda (a female pimp), Ivan (a serial rapist), and Rex (an abusive husband), as well as his wife, Morgan. Rigg manages to save only Morgan before stumbling toward his final destination.

In the final room of Rigg’s game, Eric Matthews hangs over a block of ice, which is slowly being melted with heating pads. Matthews is positioned on a weighted platform with the recently kidnapped Detective Hoffman (who will be electrocuted if Matthews falls). Art Blank, a corrupt defense attorney, is overseeing Rigg’s game (though he is merly a pawn of Jigsaw).

Strahm and Perez interrogate John Kramer’s ex-wife, Jill Tuck, who reveals that Kramer became Jigsaw when Jill lost the couple’s baby following an attack by an addict attempting to steal prescription drugs from Jill’s clinic. Strahm and Perez also investigate each subsequent crime scene related to Rigg’s game  – until an exploding Jigsaw doll incapacitates Perez. Strahm eventually finds the factory where Rigg’s game concludes, and there he runs into Jeff Denlon (from Saw 3) surrounded by the corpses of John Kramer, Amanda Young, and Denlon’s wife Lynn – thereby revealing that the events of Saw 3 and 4 are happening simultaneously. Strahm kills Jeff in self-defense.

Rigg charges into the final room of his game, setting off a tripwire that kills Detective Eric Matthews and electrocutes Detective Hoffman (Rigg’s test was to let go of his obsessions). Thinking Art Blank is a Jigsaw accomplice, Rigg shoots him. Moments later, Detective Hoffman stands up, unharmed, and locks Rigg in the room to die – revealing that he is the other Jigsaw apprentice.

Primary Characters (Deceased = Strikethrough):

  • John Kramer (Tobin Bell)
  • Mark Hoffman (Costas Mandylor)
  • Peter Strahm (Scott Patterson)
