Audience Member This movie sucks. It's a boring, tasteless pile of trash that moves in absolutely no direction whatsoever. It wastes 50 minutes of the audience's time before ANYTHING happens. It doesn't even make up for this with some good nudity, we get to see a rather attractive woman in her underwear, but that's it, no boobs. It mainly focuses on this creepy professor who looks way too young to be working there, your typical party going type girl with a dark secret (which btw has no relevancy to the movie), her wimpy boyfriend, another girl who looks 12, and her annoying jackass of a boyfriend. That's it. And for a whole 50 minutes too! Keep in mind that this is almost 80 minutes in length! It could've done something with the story in that much time. But nope, uninteresting characters, their backstories which try to give you an emotional connection with characters but fail miserably, oh yeah, and the creepy professor who should've been killed off first! I'll give this movie credit where credit is due, the quality is alright. It's nothing to write home about but it is passable. Another redeeming factor, it was very well lit. But that's it, the rest, it's a complete and utter dumpster fire. Plain and simple. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie needs to die in hell. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member The film was ok... didnt really explain how/why Jigsaw came alive, why he wanted to make a jigsaw out of his creators and why he didnt use one creator and used someone who played no part in creating him instead. The ending SUCKED, but up until then the film was fine to watch. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member ga punya perikemanusiaan.. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Jigsaw is one of those cheaply done, full-of-dreams horror flicks that has its heart in the right place if not flawed. First off, the initial premise is pretty gnarly. People from an art class make a mannequin by bringing in their own pieces. Some of these folks had some serious issues and the pieces they brought in echoed that. So, come the time to off them, a lot of these folks ended up biting it by the things they feared most. Gotta respect that, especially for an ultra-low budget horror flick. I also respected the fact that the movie didn't start on the shlock until at least halfway through, scoping out the players and having me give a shit whenever they were offed. Don Adams & Harry James Picardi had a great handle on cinematography and the angles. The very artsy feel also upped the feel of the picture as opposed to coming off as a cheap death count on screen. Nice! Barrett Walsh plays a douche but a convincing one at that! I was pleasantly surprised by him! Aimee Bravo was a major plus for me here. She's smoking hot and is also the obvious eye candy for the movie but she also gets one key moment where her acting talent shines. Let's just say she gets one very deep, lengthy monologue and not only was she convincing but also got to my dead heart with it and had me almost tearing up like a toddler. AMAZING JOB. Mia Zifkin does fine but there were times she wasn't convincing. Arthur Simone played the deadpan guy and it didn't work for me. I really didn't like him. Maren Lindow had her on and off moments. James Palmer did okay but more often than not felt very wooden. David Wesley Cooper was terrific as the wife beater. He convinced me big time. On the downside, having most of the actors not being as good as their parts did hurt the flick. Develop them all you want but if they fail to convince, I won't care half as much. The gore department was also surprisingly low. I expected a lot more payoff with all that build up! One or two scenes aside, there wasn't much. Lastly, the kids were not that impressed by the fact that their art piece came to life and is killing them. They also failed to to do the right thing many-a-times by not running or even attempting to fight back. This thing is so slow! A guy on crutches could hop around it two or three times by the time it caught up to him! Do something already! But overall, I liked this movie. It tried its best and was made by people with a lot of love for it. Add to that a well-done soundtrack/score and you get a cheap film that impressed me. Worth a watch, even if strictly for Aimee Bravo. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Poor film. Terrible ending!
