Example text

The resolution is rarely reassuring in horror films: as Carrie’s hand shoots from the grave (in Carrie [1976]), Katie launches Micah towards the audience (Paranormal Activity), the audience is not afforded the reassurance of a neat equilibrium. When SAW ends, Jigsaw walks away and intones, ‘Game over’, but while his sport may well be at a conclusion, the climax leaves many threads. Gordon is presumably fatally wounded, Adam is trapped; we do not find out what happens to them, and so therefore, the narrative is left unsettled – at least until the sequel, which, when the initial screenplay was written, was in no way guaranteed.

Looking at the chronology below, we can chart the linear narrative of the plot and its complex viewing order. Chronology of events in SAW The order of events within the onscreen narrative is indicated by the numbers in brackets. - John Kramer is diagnosed with cancer (not shown). - Paul undergoes his trap (2). - Detectives Kerry, Singh and Trapp create a crime scene in an ongoing investigation (not shown). - Amanda undergoes her trap (6). - Mark undergoes his trap (3). - Gordon meets someone illicitly.

Previously, we have seen male victims freak out and panic, ruining any hope of escape. But in Amanda’s case, as she has escaped the chair ties, we have already seen a minor triumph from her; and she now seems emboldened. She is frightened, but she is also sure; she knows what she must do. Escape is not an option. As Jigsaw entreats her to ‘live or die, make your choice’, the camera slows to emphasise Amanda’s decisive head turn. Amanda is dressed in an ‘emo-uniform’ of fishnet stockings, calligraphic tattoos, and long sleeves (the significance of which will be realised later in the sequel).
