    Carla Meyer San Francisco Chronicle

    The slasher scenes, though relatively few, are amazingly evocative for such a low-budget movie. show more

    Becomes exceedingly disgusting when it wallows in the psychological torture of a child, a no-no under any circumstances. show more

    The film is a squeamish exercise, like watching a cruel child pull the wings off flies - especially the climactic scene, which is so gory it would turn a coyote's stomach. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Boasts an undeniably original premise and clever plot machinations that lift it several notches above the usual slasher film level. show more

    Robert K. Elder Chicago Tribune

    Wan's tense, grisly cinematic morsel won't go down easy. But once it hits bottom, Saw is oddly satisfying, though the gag reflex never entirely goes away. show more

    You have to see these movies in order. Each one builds on the next. If you just jump into one of the episodes without seeing the previous ones, you won't have a clue whats going on.
