44 corrected entries

Corrected entry: During Jigsaw's seizure, Lynn runs over to the shelves that have all the bottles of pills and starts looking for a certain type of pill. The first time you see the shelves all of the bottles are knocked over and strewn around. The shot cuts to Amanda holding Jigsaw down, then back to Lynn looking for pills. For some reason most of the pill bottles have now magically been put upright and look fairly organized.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Correction: What you see are two different sets of bottles. The one lot is still strewn all over the place and and the others are neat and tidy.

A Demon

Corrected entry: When the movie opens, Eric is in the bathroom and looks over at Adam, who is leaning up against the wall. However when we see Adam in Saw 2, he is propped up against the pipe. Eric hasn't moved him, as he's chained up. Obviously when they set up the bathroom for this movie, they did not put the dummy Adam in the same place.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: Correct that in Saw 2 Adam was propped up against the wall. However, in this film, Adam has decomposed a fair bit indicating that the two films take place a good 12-18 months apart. With the decomposition, it is entirely plausible that his corpse shifted into the new position.

A Demon

Corrected entry: The trap for Timothy Young was designed to rotate at 180 degrees for each limb (as is also stated in the commentary). However, given that Timothy's arm is facing forward, rotating his arm backwards at 180 degrees wouldn't be enough to break his arm although it would cause a great deal of discomfort on him. Perhaps 360 degrees would make sense.

Correction: No rotating his arm back 180° wouldn't normally break his arms. However, given the device he is strapped to would prevent even the slightest of movements anywhere above the elbow, a break would occur after being twisted backwards 180°.

A Demon

Corrected entry: When Lynn is preparing for John's surgery, her hair goes from being tied back, to being out, to being tied back again.

xx:xx:xx

Correction: This little sequence is a montage of her getting ready. Could easily have tied it up or untied it herself in between the shots we see.

A Demon

Corrected entry: When Lynn is tied to the chair her hair moves throughout the whole scene.

Low Cow

Correction: This is due to her struggling to free herself.

A Demon

Corrected entry: The first time Kerry's TV shows the view from inside of the closet you can already see one of the bullet holes in the door even though she hasn't even shot yet.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: You can't see the door until she fires at it. And even using slow-mo, you can see there is no bullet holes in the door until Kerry fires the first one.

A Demon

Corrected entry: When Kerry's watching the jigsaw tape there is a box behind her. In one shot the lid is half on, in the next shot (and all other shots) the lid is nowhere to be seen.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Correction: The lid always remains on the other side of the bed. Her pillow makes it appear that there is a lid on the box.

A Demon

Corrected entry: As Kerry walks to check out the pieces of the body you can see the evidence markers 7 and 8 are right next to a piece of arm (or leg), but when they start cutting to different pieces only the 7 is by the leg.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Correction: That's because the camera angle showing 7 doesn't cover where the other marker was.

A Demon

Corrected entry: When Kerry is explaining how the Tony case doesn't match up she puts her hands in her pockets and leans up against the wall. The shot cuts to a view of Rigg and the detective and she's still leaning against the wall, the cuts back to her and she's standing up straight again (instant cuts, no time to move).

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Correction: She doesn't lean against the wall. Her stance makes it appear that she is leaning against the wall.

A Demon

Corrected entry: When Lynn rolls out of bed with Chris to go to work, she has an argument with Chris. He claims she does not talk to him anymore, knows her schedule, etc... Chris asks for a divorce as she heads out the door. Then in the end of the movie, after Jeff shoots Amanda, John Kramer claims Jeff and Lynn were married. Then there is a flashback to the bed scene with Chris, and John Kramer says, "the cheating wife." If Chris wanted her to divorce Jeff, it would be because they were happy. Lynn and Chris could not arrange to sleep together if Lynn was married to Jeff without Lynn talking to Chris.

xx:xx:xx

ujeremy

Correction: The implication is that Lynn and Chris had been sleeping together for a while. Chris doesn't like doing it in secret, which is why he asks Lynn to divorce Jeff.

Serious B

Corrected entry: In the scene when Amanda taunts Lynn, tempting Lynn to kill her, there are two Reverse Bear Traps in the room; one is Amanda's, the other is the same exact one Jill Tuck puts on Hoffman in the future Saw VI. The latter is the one Lynn looks at (at the time it is just a scattered pile of pieces, unassembled).

Eyexpress333

Correction: The "Saw" films are not that pre-planned. The filmmakers didn't even know how IV-VII would turn out while making this one, so seeing some scattered pieces of material that vaguely look like the second reverse bear trap is not trivia, but merely a coincidence.

MaximumMadness

Corrected entry: If you look closely, right before the brain surgery scene, on one of the monitors behind Amanda (that are supposed to be monitoring Jeff), you can see Rigg, nearing the ending of Saw IV (between the school and meatpacking plant), indicating that the two are happening at the same time.

Eyexpress333

Correction: This trivia is wrong for many reasons. 1) It's Jeff, not Rigg. 2) The filmmakers have repeatedly stated that while there is some pre-planning, the films are not exactly mapped out, so at the time of this film's making, they had no way of even knowing that Rigg was going to be the main character in "Saw IV." (And furthermore, Rigg was a replacement, originally Mathews was supposed to be the lead in IV, so if anything, HE would've been the one on camera.) 3) At this point in the timeline, if Rigg was between the school and meat packing plant (which he wouldn't be yet, as he arrived just before Jigsaw died, which is still a fairly long time away during this scene), there would be no way for Jigsaw to be tracking him, as he's traveling in public. There are other reasons, as well.

MaximumMadness

Corrected entry: The blades that slice up and supposedly more or less liquify the pigs wouldn't realistically do so. They would just slice up the carcasses, and only parts would come out.

Correction: We see that the pigs are chopped up, then go through a metal chute to the other chamber. There could very well be more blades in that chute.

A Demon

Corrected entry: Previously (part II), Amanda sported a short, spiky 'do. Here, her hair is back to its original length, (as in the first film) Given the actual time-frame between parts II and III (about a year), this would be impossible as female hair grows only half an inch per month; maximum 6.5" in twelve months. Amanda's hair should be only shoulder-length here, and its almost as long as Lynn's.

oprlvr33

Correction: It's been about a year. They have these things called hair extensions. Women use them.

rswarrior

Corrected entry: When Lynn is opening John's skull, the amount of blood in the cavity changes drastically between shots. The cavity goes from full to nearly completely devoid of blood with no evidence that Lynn had washed it out.

Correction: This isn't correct - they show Lynn washing out the blood with alcohol, and then using forceps to close off the blood supply to the area, leaving it relatively clean thereafter.

Andrew Upton

Corrected entry: According to the Saw III commentary, in a flash back of Jigsaw and Amanda setting up the bathroom trap, Jigsaw told Amanda to tie the key to Adam's foot, making the trap escapable. However, Amanda was careless, and instead just tossed it onto Adam's chest before leaving. Because it was unattached, it was then sucked down the drain as he woke up.

Jazetopher

Correction: I rewatched the scene, but didn't notice Jigsaw saying to tie the key to Adam's foot. He told Amanda to put Adam's leg in the shackles. It would have been too simple for Adam to have the key hanging within his reach. Jigsaw wanted the key to be in the bathroom and he presumed that it would be washed away. At the end of Saw I he told the shocked Adam that the key was in the tub. Adam had a faint chance, but still he had it.

Corrected entry: When Jigsaw first says "I call it The Rack" you see shots of the guy's hand and feet. There is blood coming out of the spots where the bolts are going through, and the blood is dripping down onto the parts of The Rack, but when the machine actually starts to turn his hands (right one) there is no blood to be seen.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: There most certainly is blood. The stream of blood on his hand is just lighter in volume. But you still can see the blood.

Corrected entry: The scene goes back to Lynn preparing for Jigsaw's surgery after Jeff rescues the judge. There is a shot of Jigsaw watching Lynn and you can see the hand rotary saw lying on a tray beside him. There are various shots of Lynn getting the equipment ready, and one of them shows her testing the saw and they laying it down on the table with the other instruments. There is another shot of Jigsaw watching Lynn, and you can see that the rotary saw is still on the tray beside him.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: This whole scene is a montage, and is not in real time, so she may have moved the rotary saw in between shots.

Corrected entry: The boards all break when Jeff falls out of the box and one of them lands between his arm and his side. Jeff passes out and we see his flashback. Jeff comes to, and now the board is lying across his chest.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: He was passed out and having a very distressing dream/flashback about his last moments before being kidnapped. So, it is entirely plausible that he moved in his sleep and ended up throwing the boards around a bit, (I've seen relatives thrash violently in their sleep) and ended up with one on top of him.

Corrected entry: The shotgun in the clear case is pointed at the right side of the Judge's face. After the gun fires the hit is registered on the left side of his face.

Japan-Games

Correction: As John says "I've got the key" the judge turns to look at him, making the gun point at the left side of his face.

Corrected entry: The position of the paintbrush in Jigsaw's mouth changes during shots of him painting the puppet.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Correction: This is a flashback montage, so the shots are not necessarilly in real-time.

Corrected entry: Almost all of the women in the hospital scene are wearing earrings or other types of jewelry. My best friend's mother was a doctor for many years and none of the doctors or nurses were allowed to wear any jewelry while they were at work. An earring could fall off into a patient, a ring could get snagged, etc. Too many risks. There shouldn't have been any jewelry being worn in the hospital scene.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Thats not true in all hospitals. At the hospital in my county all the nurses wear jewelry, so not all hospitals have this rule.

Corrected entry: This goes back to the original Saw, but it's present in the flashback scene in Saw III. When Adam opens up his closet (in the original) he's holding the bat in his right hand and the camera in his left. In the flashback scene you get to see it from Amanda's point of view, and he's holding the bat in his left hand and the camera in his right.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: I just went back and watched this scene both in the first and the third Saw movie, and in both versions, when Adam opens the closet door and pauses in front of it, he has the bat in his left hand and the camera in his right.

Corrected entry: The straw in Jigsaw's drink is on the opposite side of the glass during the flashbacks when he's telling Amanda that it was actually her test. (During the scene at the start of the movie it was at the front of the glass, during the flashback it's at the back of the glass).

Nick Bylsma

Correction: The flashbacks are of events that happened much earlier, and he might have taken a sip from the straw since then, so it makes sense the straw is not in the same place.

Corrected entry: As Jigsaw is dying there is a shot of him slowly closing his eyes and there's no tear or anything. The shot cuts to Jeff for an instant (less than a second), then back to Jigsaw, and there's a tear and a tear run all the way down his cheek. There wasn't enough time for him to cry it out.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Tears do not always more slowly. They can move quite fast, and move down your face in less than a second, so this is actually possible.

Corrected entry: When Lynn is shaving Jigsaw's head it is extremely obvious that she's not actually cutting his hair. The clippers come nowhere near his scalp.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Thats because Jigsaws hair is thick and fluffy. You must thin the hair before cutting at the root or you risk painful catching and jamming of the clippers in the thicker hair, trust me, I shave my own head. It happens a lot in the cheaper models of clippers, and everything Jigsaw uses is cheap, found, self-made and often very old and even sometimes rusty.

Corrected entry: Amanda's flashback scene shows Jigsaw placing her in the chair, then putting the first part of the "Reverse Venus Flytrap" device in her mouth. She has no black lipstick on in those shots, but she was wearing black lipstick during that scene in the original Saw. Later, during the flashback, you see her coming out of the building and she has the black lipstick on.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: I've watched the scene several times and paused on the one specific shot showing Amanda's lips and the black lipstick can be seen as Jigsaw tilts her head back.

Corrected entry: When setting the bathroom trap, John looks in the mirror and says 'It's time to start our game." One would think he's saying this to Amanda, but he says, "Zep, its time to start our game." The word Zep has been removed.

Correction: You cannot see Jigsaw mouth the word "Zep." It looks more like he is simply sighing before delivering his line.

Corrected entry: At the end of "Saw II", Larry's sawn-off foot is green and moldy like the corpses of Adam and Zep. Yet in this movie, only a few minutes after being locked in, Eric looks at Gordon's foot, and it is now orange bronze.

Correction: Untrue. It appears slightly orange/bronze simply because of the weak flashlight that is being used to illuminate it. Should the regular lights have come on, it would look greenish and rotted as it did in "Saw II."

Corrected entry: After the guy's left leg snaps there is a shot of his face and you can easily tell that he's passed out. His mouth is slightly open, his head is tilted to the side, and his eyes are rolled back into his head.but less than 10 seconds later his head starts being cranked and he's wide awake. It's debatable whether he'd even stay awake through this entire experience in the first place, your body will shut down after hitting a certain pain threshold, and breaking most of the major bones in the body would probably do that. That fact aside, if he did finally pass out, it would take more than 10 seconds to be fully awake and aware of your surroundings.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Already submitted and corrected.

A Demon

Corrected entry: All of the ground up rotten pig that is shown splashing over the judge is extremely liquid, yet in one of the last scenes of the judge still padlocked down you can see lots of solid chunks floating in the goop. There's no way that those big chunks could have made it through all of the blades, some of them even look too large to have been able to fit through the hole that the liquid was coming from.

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Watching the scene, it is obvious that those types of blades could not completly liquify the pigs, so there deffinitly should be large chunks in the vat. Also, none of the chunks are too big that they couldn't have fit through the hole.

Corrected entry: It's been mentioned that Eric throws his light at Amanda in Saw 2 but it roles back to him. He actually throws the tape recorder because he cant reach his light or gun in this movie.

Correction: I see no mistake in this entry. He throws the tape recorder at Amanda just for the sake of throwing something at her. He has not yet had time to go for the gun and flashlight, which he does at the start of this movie. There is no mistake here.

Corrected entry: As Matthews rounds the corner (during the flashback when he's looking for Danny) you can see the mic antenna sticking up out of his jeans.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Or it could be his police walkie talkie.

A Demon

Corrected entry: When Jeff plays the tape in the freezer, Jigsaw mentions that Danica Scott fled the scene after witnessing his son's death. If so, then how does he know who she is if she never testified against Timothy at his trial? There would be no way for Jigsaw to have known who she is or to find her.

Correction: Jigsaw seems to know a lot of things about a lot of people. How did he know about the original wreck? I assume it means that he was there when the accident happened, that's a very plausible assumption.

Nick Bylsma

Corrected entry: During the 'brain surgery' scene, John has a flashback. In one part you see him filming a woman. The camcorder he is using is a 2006 model. It looks an awful lot like a European Sony Hc 44 model only with the brand taped off. Since he doesn't looks that sick in this flashback, is should be before the original Saw dated 2004.

Correction: Well we don't know what year the movies take place in so its not a mistake.

Corrected entry: Kerry's hands are above her head when she first comes into the room where the guy was chained up. The detective says "it's not detective Matthews" and she slowly starts to lower her arms, but they are still above her head. The shot cuts in to a close-up of her and you can tell by her shoulder position that her arms are already down by her sides.

xx:xx:xx

Nick Bylsma

Correction: Not a mistake. Just watch and you can see her lower her arms.

A Demon

Corrected entry: When Jeff finds the dummy, the position of its head changes during different shots.

Correction: The dummy's head turns because it is motorized and probably being controlled by Amanda back at the "headquarters."

Corrected entry: In the "twisting machine" scene, Jeff reaches for a key in a glass box. At the other end of the box is a shotgun, its trigger tied to the string that the key is on. The man removes the key but accidentally triggers the shotgun. The blast only grazes him, but it obliterates the judge standing behind him. Considering where both men were standing, Jeff should have got more of the blast than he did.

Correction: You can see Jeff moving away just in time not to be hit.

Mortug

Corrected entry: In the final part of the film where it's showing flashbacks of Amanda and Jigsaw planning their traps, we see a scene that shows Jigsaw setting up Lawrence's trap. After he's put the blood on his face and goes to lie down, we see him put both his arms out away from his body. However, in the first film, he had his arm underneath him because he used it to secretly electrocute the first two victims.

Correction: In the first film, John has his arms spread out. One hand holding the gun. The other, a tape player. It was speculated that he had the transmitter for electrocution in his mouth. Watch the first film again and you'll see what I mean.

moviemogul

Corrected entry: In the freezer scene, the woman freezes over between two shots, with no time in between to account for her freezing over like that.

Correction: Freezing isn't a delayed thing. She had enough water sprayed on her and it was so cold in there to freeze instantly. It is entirely possible for that to happen.

moviemogul

Corrected entry: At the very beginning of the film it picks up where Saw II left-off, with Eric Mason chained to the pipes in the bathroom and Amanda leaving him there to die. Eric has a flashlight and a handgun just out of reach, however at the end of Saw II he threw the flashlight at Amanda as she closed the door meaning it should be on the other side of the room.

Correction: The flashlight could have very well rolled back if Eric threw it hard enough.

moviemogul

Corrected entry: The doctor drills holes into Jigsaws skull but when she removes the piece of skull, the holes have disappeared.

Correction: That's because she used the saw to cut from hole to hole, thereby getting rid of the holes.The holes were there just as starting and ending points for the saw.

moviemogul

Corrected entry: When the woman is frozen, the ice forms way-too-thick a layer around her too quickly to be realistic.

Correction: Depending upon the temperature of the water being sprayed, and the temperature of the room, the ice could certainly form that fast. Having lived in Norway, I have seen ocean spray freeze instantly on cars.

wizard_of_gore

Corrected entry: At the end, when the woman's head is blown up, only her face is destroyed, without any damage to her neck. This makes no sense, as the explosives were around the neck.

Correction: I've seen the movie twice, and it certainly looks to me like everything from the neck up is blown away.

When Eric Matthews is smashing his foot, he hits it the first time and it shows a close up. If you watch the small amount of blood when he hits it again they have used the same shot.

Trivia

When the camera moves from Troy's crime scene to Kerry being in the bathtub, that was all one shot - Dina Meyer had to run around the set, take off all her clothes, and jump into the tub. If you look closely, you can still see the water moving from when she got in.
