Two men are trapped in a large cell, chained to opposite ends of the room. They are surrounded by clues that lead them to realize that they have been targeted by a serial killer with a penchant for clever traps and predicaments.
Guys, I did it! I watched Saw! And kind of liked it. The plot was twisty and interesting, and some of the actors were great (not the two guys in the cell, though). And the worst of the gore was more suggested than shown. On the down side, some of the acting was pretty weak. More importantly, there were three separate times where characters did not do what those characters would actually have done, and what would have made sense: shoot the bad guy, call for backup, use shirt as extension of hand. This totally detracted from the potential impact of the finale.
But who cares? This biddy survived Saw, and that's all that matters! Horrorthon goal #1: check!
