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.

Jigsaw: Oh yes...there will be blood.



When Amanda and Daniel entered the bathroom from 'Saw', Adam's body is shown with his right leg shackled. However, in 'Saw' and in Amanda's flashback in 'Saw III', his left leg is shackled.



When Jigsaw and Eric escape the lair via a hidden elevator, the low-budget of the film prevented the construction of an actual working elevator. Thus, some tricky photography and editing was implemented. For the first shot where we see Jigsaw and Eric "going down", the scene was simply shot by raising the camera vertically to give the impression of them "going down" on an elevator. 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.
