Saw IV

Continuity mistake: The blood stain on Riggs' white shirt around the neck has blood under the collar, then at the end it is over the collar and has increased in amount.


Continuity mistake: During the autopsy scene, Dr Hefner puts his mask on upside down(the eye lenses are on his neck) when he turns to begin, the mask is on correctly. (00:01:35)


Continuity mistake: When Rig opens the door the clock says 00:00 time left, but when he is talking to Art on the floor the clock says 00:01.


Continuity mistake: If you go back and compare the ending of "Saw III" with the ending of "Saw IV", you can tell the lighting is different in certain areas (specifically when Strahm sees the dooor swing shut on its own), even though it is supposed to be in the same time and place.

Continuity mistake: *SPOILER* When Agent Strahm breaks into the Jigsaw's room in the end, he literally comes in less than a minute after "Saw III"'s conclusion. Yet, if you look, Amanda's dead body is in a completely different position than the end of "Saw III", which makes no sense, as there was no time or reason for it to be moved. At the end of III, her body was facing towards Jigsaw, and there was only a small amount of blood around her. Here, her body is facing in a different direction, and there is a ridiculously larger amount of blood.

Continuity mistake: The timer for Ivan's trap is messed up. The first shot we see it at 3 seconds. 12 seconds later we see the time at 42 seconds, and we know the 12 seconds are continuous as Jigsaw's tape plays during this time. 23 continuous seconds later we see it at 37 seconds (this would have been right if not for the second shot). This is when Jigsaw's instructions stop and his one minute should begin. As the first scythe descends into his right eye the timer is at 55 seconds. We see it at 57 seconds just before he gets his limbs ripped off. Two seconds is not enough time for him to scream after the injury to his right eye and recover to convince himself to take out the left so it must be a 1 minute 2 second interval, meaning he had at least 83 seconds to complete the task rather than 60 stated in the tape.

Continuity mistake: In Saw III after Kerry puts her hand in the acid it is red with blood. However when we see it here, it's back to being clear. (00:11:20)

More quotes from Saw IV

Trivia: When Officer Rigg is walking through the school, before he finds Morgan and Rex in the rod trap, he walks by a dark room blocked off with police-barrier-tape. Originally, there was a scene that revealed this was the room where Troy from "Saw III" died, but it was cut, presumably for pacing reasons.

More trivia for Saw IV

Question: A tape recorded by John directed toward agent Perez states that her partner would soon take the life of an innocent man. How did John know that agent Strahm would kill Jeff? For all he knows, Strahm could have followed Rigg through the factory rather than Jeff. The "if you're good at anticipating the human mind, it leaves nothing to chance" excuse doesn't work here. The only reason Strahm followed Jeff was because he heard Jeff hit a ceiling light with a crowbar.
