Thoughts on Jigsaw
Jigsaw feels like a last gasp of the torture porn era of horror films. A herd of characters who are despicable try to prevent a horrid death that they all completely deserve. It’s still trying to be clever but instead it comes off as a dead horse getting beaten to a pulp. Too much stupidity and not enough substance to make it worth a damn. If I hadn’t seen the other films I never would have bothered with this at all. It brings nothing new to the table and doesn’t even attempt to revive the genre. Instead it’s the same story with twists that can’t live up to the first movie.
