Jigsaw picture

Plot hole: Spoilers. It's revealed that the barn game takes place at an old farmhouse owned by the family of Jill Tuck - Jigsaw's widow. It's public knowledge that she was married to Jigsaw and that buildings they owned served as the headquarters of several past traps, so the barn should have been investigated at some point in the meantime. Ten years have passed. It makes no sense that the barn was never investigated and that the bodies of the barn victims were never discovered.

Suggested correction: The game was unknown to police even 10 years after John died. Now they've found all his other games and his multiple lairs. There would be no need to continue the search.

Wind River picture

Other mistake: At the end of the movie, when Cory is in Natalie's bedroom, Cory stops and looks at a picture of Natalie and his daughter wearing a high school graduation cap and gown. Cory said his daughter was only 16 when she died so she would've already been dead by the time Natalie graduated. (01:36:00)
