Game Changer: The Legacy of ‘Saw’ Movie Clip. There’s a new box-set titled Saw: The Complete Collection. This set contains a documentary, called Game Changer: The Legacy of ‘Saw’, that works as a retrospective on the franchise. If you’re not into physical media – or are only interested in watching the documentary as opposed to picking up the entire box-set – head to iTunes where purchasing Saw: Unrated will get you Game Changer, as well.
I thoroughly enjoyed Saw (2004) when it came out. It’s a tight, compact horror flick. This is one of those occurrences where time and money constraints actually seemed to elevate the film, bringing out a creativity based on limited locations and possibilities. There are very few characters in the entire film, and just as many locations. The thrill is the mystery, and the allure of an inevitable reveal. When that final twist actually comes, its cathartic, twisted, and effective.
The gore in this film was, of course, a huge plus. You know someone’s cutting a limb off, eventually. ‘Torture porn’ is nothing without dread, and a stretching of tension that you know will snap sooner or later. Saw did that very well.
As is usual with most horror franchises, I don’t care too much for the sequels. I dropped out after the immediate sequel, and didn’t care for the mythology they were building around “Jigsaw”. I liked the minimalism of the first one – few answers, the ones we got were simple. I don’t need to know the guy’s lifestory, empathize with him, or see him hand his reigns off to an honourable follower of his practices.
In any case, there’s a whole new box-set, for those hardcore Saw fans out there. If this is you – or, if you love making of’s, documentaries, and retrospectives like me – pick up the box-set or buy Saw: Unrated on iTunes to watch Game Changer: The Legacy of ‘Saw’ (2015).
We have a clip to entice you! Take a look below.
