Saw II

Jigsaw begins his killings again, and at the scene of one of his "games" he leaves a note calling for a Detective (Eric) Matthews. At first reluctant to get involved, after Eric notices a clue Jigsaw left behind and works out the location of his hideout, he decides to come along for the ride when a SWAT team break in. Jigsaw or "John" rather (Jigsaw being a name given by the press) is actually inside, sitting at his desk and attached to a life support system (he is already dying of cancer.) It's at this point he reveals that he has trapped a group of people in a house somewhere, (including the heroine addict from the first movie, Amanda) and they have 2 hours to live before a nerve gas filling the house causes them to bleed to death.

There are several doses of the cure hidden in the house but in order to get them they will have to pass a series of brutal tests. Eric and the team can watch the different rooms of the house through monitors in Jigsaws base and can see the 2 hour timer ticking down but have no way to communicate with the people inside, and to his horror Eric realises one of the people is his son, Daniel. John challenges Eric to a game. The rules of the game are simple. He has to sit and listen to what John has to tell him, only then will he see his son alive ever again. As the unlucky people in the house begin to explore and die one by one, time is ticking away and Eric seems no closer to saving his son.

Continuity mistake: After Amanda falls into the pit of syringes and is dragged out by Eric's son, she is covered in blood from being stabbed with many syringes, but in every scene after that she has no blood stains on her skin or clothes. (00:52:25)

Trivia: When Jigsaw and Eric escape the lair via a hidden elevator, the film's low budget prevented the construction of an actual working elevator. Thus, some trick photography and editing was implemented. For the first shot of Jigsaw and Eric "going down", the scene was shot by raising the camera vertically to give the impression they were descending. For the next wide shot, simple digital effects were added to make it appear that the room was "lowering." And for the final shot where we see the top of the elevator going down an elevator shaft, stock footage from the film "Hollow Man" was used.

Question: At the end of the film, when they go back into the bathroom from the first, I noticed that they had shown 2 people. They showed the man from the first, chained to the piped in the corner. And then they showed a face of someone on the floor. Who was this?

Sir William

Answer: It was Zep, but he died because Adam smashed his head with a toilet seat cover.

Chosen answer: It was Zep, the guy from the first film that jigsaw used to kidnap the doctor's wife and kid. He went down to the room at the end of the first film, then got shot, so ended up dead down there too.
