Another series with a plethora of bizarre, unique and often disgusting death scenes is the Saw franchise. As the series dragged on, story lines became more convoluted, characters became more thinly drawn and Jigsaw and his devoted minions of mayhem started to repeat themselves. Most of the Saw trap victims were sliced up or shot, but one of the more unique and creative setups appears in the original Saw, where a man is poisoned, placed in a dark room where the antidote is hidden and given only a candle to light the way. Oh, but with Jigsaw there's always a catch. The man is also covered in flammable jelly and one false move will set him ablaze.
This trap is unique because there are two ways that our victim could perish. He could simply not find the antidote and die from being poisoned, although this would certainly be anticlimactic, or be lit up like his candle. I haven't done the exact math, but over the course of the series, I would say successful escape rates are pretty low, around 10% or so and unfortunately this was not one of those few. As the idiom goes, if you play with fire, you will get burned.
