Saw 3D The Final Installment of The Saw Franchise Comes to DVD
The Saw movies have been highly successful. The movies began in 2004 with the original Saw, since then the Saw franchise has produced seven of the horror films that have grossed 8 million worldwide. After six Saw movies, and Saw DVDS, Saw 3D was released on DVD On January 25, 2011.
The Saw franchise centers around a character called “Jigsaw” otherwise known as John Kramer who appears directly in the first two films, and in the other films via flashbacks. Kramer’s ex-wife, Jill Tuck appears in many of these flashback, and becomes a more prominent character as she is the one to handle details of his estate after his death.
The appeal of Jigsaw is not simply the horror of the situations he puts his victims in, but in the psychological aspect of the character that propels him to legendary status that has led to seven Saw DVDs. Unlike many serial killers, he doesn’t kill his victims directly, and feels his role is justified, much like a vigilante. Diagnosed with cancer, he sets out to teach people to appreciate life, albeit in a twisted way.
Saw began as a short film created by director James Wan and Screenwriter Leigh Whannell. It was given the go ahead to pursue as a feature film and was introduced at the 2004 Sundance film festival. In each movie the characters are put into challenging situations, and have to pass tests in order to prove their will to live.
Despite the success at the box office, critics are less impressed with the Saw DVDs, and Saw 3D:The Final Chapter ties up the loose ends left in the first six Saw movies.
Dr. Lawrence Gordon appeared in the first three movies as well as Saw 3D, and was the doctor who diagnosed John Kramer’s cancer. He is unfeeling as a doctor and his moral limitations serve to inspire Kramer to create the Jigsaw Killer.
After Kramer’s death, Mark Hoffman takes over as the Jigsaw Killer beginning in the fourth film, his reasons are similar to Kramer’s. Hoffman fell into the Saw puzzle while working with Amanda Young, an angry young woman looking to justify the abuse and neglect she suffered as a child.
Billy, the ventriloquist dummy delivers the tapes that describe the games and test the Jigsaw killer puts before his victims. He serves a prominent purpose throughout all the films, serving as the primary messenger in the series.
While each of the movies and Saw DVDs were released in a timely fashion after the ending of their theatrical release, it has become possible to obtain all seven Saw DVDs, including Saw 3D. While the series had plenty of gruesome moments, it also made it’s fans think, and for that it’s likely to be remembered for a long time.
